Power Boats Rule

Well, at least according to something called Yacht Council, they do. While
sales of motoryachts under 70′ increased 9% for the first six months of
2007 compared to the same time a year ago, sales of boats over 70′ increased
21% . It makes you wonder just what the hell is going on. Do people just
have that much extra discretionary income? And is it that people are so
fucking stupid that they think buying power boats, given fuel prices,
environmental issues, or an uncertain economy is still a good decision?
No doubt large sailboats sales are up as well, but the whole huge power
boat thing remains a mystery to us.
