As a division of Fluid Motion, LLC, manufacturer of the popular fleet of Ranger Tugs, Cutwater Boats offers complementary styling and performance, built to the same high standards of quality that have earned Fluid Motion a position of leadership etc etc
First off, beautiful boats, nicely made. I want one.
But, what they did about 3 moths ago is come out with "LE" (Limited Editions) of the Cutwaters. We're talking a base boat with about ten of the most popular options (say 20K worth) for thirty something large off.
Now there are dealers with demos of the "standard" model on the floor that they are massively upside down in, not to mention the private sellers that are trying to sell a two, three year old boat with a reasonable depreciation that are competing with a brand new one......
Why would a factory do this to their owners/dealers? I've heard five dealerships have told the manufacturer to go and (expletive deleted).
Does anyone have insight into THIS particular situation?
I'm shopping, and I want to figure this out before I get burnt.
