Not true whatsoever. When my parents just bought their yacht, you think they considered fuel efficiency? Hell yes they did, as they frequent Catalina island and they value money. Not assessing costs is flat out stupid. Getting a feeler for how much gas you will potentially use doesnt mean he cant afford the boat, I can assure you that.
