I asked the builder why the sudden change. His answer was straight forward, because we can charge more and everyone just followed along.

Soooooo, if you have 2footites, the newer boat ..... are all automatically taking care of that.
I sort of wish I bought an older 41ft AT. Now the newer ATs are called it 43ft boat I think ??

You have to be careful of what you buying when it comes to AOL. maybe the WLL will become more important ????
You know the WLL went up 2 feet at the same time, as the mold now includes the swimgrid?
In the GB re-measurement, the 42 used to be hull length, but in the 47, now includes the swimgrid (molded in) and the pulpit (also molded in). So the WLL went up by including the swimgrid, but not the pulpit.
The price is more of a Supply v Demand thing.
