My guess is most of these boats aren't sold domestically, but rather over seas.

The 300 is an amazing boat both in material choices and design. The current Naval Architect at MC has a back ground in big boats having worked for Fountain and Cruisers before going to MC. Most of the boats have gone overseas but a number went to states bordering the Gulf. Most of the boast left the factory with every option box checked which adds about 200k to the price of the boat. The diesels are a 100k option alone, but they will build the boat just about any way that you want it. There is one in Miami that is white throughout with all of the cabinet doors and wood accent pieces replaced wit billet.

Well, if there is profitable demand, why not.

From the other half of the glass, could the 300 actually fund more innovation and advancement? I guess, my concern is more towards the resources required to compete in that space. The boat market has many verticals...wonder why they stopped at 30ft, why not go to 36/37 if you're gonna enter the market... Well it's easy to act like a boat manufacturer, but it's an entirely different story to be one... Guess that's why I'm a buyer and not a maker of boats

I think if they got a mulligan they wouldn't have entered the day yacht market. But it is a moderate success nonetheless.
