fair to say, that 5k uplift on the value chain must represent a very different market prognosis than back in the heady days of cheap finance, a booming economy and sailing holidays in Italy!

These Independant builders, should long ago have combined their resources, hired a marketing outfit to find out.

As you very well know, if you halve the price you donít halve the profit, there will be no profit at all!

Let marketing anywhere near independent boat builders and very rapidly the only boat builders in the country will be RS, Hartley, Topper and Ovington.

RS600 £4950 - 

49er £9250 - 


Less than 10k for a 49er ...

-- EDIT: there are line breaks in this post but its all mashed together when viewed  Cry





Interesting to see the price is along way ahead of inflation. 

Must be increased profits.
