The newest stats that I could find income surely doesn't show the average income of albertans to be in the 200K range, now that is unless the average wage has double and a half again in the last two years

Median total income, by family type, by province and territory
(All census families) 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010
Median total income

Alberta 78,400 82,030 86,080 83,560 85,380

1. Census families include couple families, with or without children, and lone-parent families.

I personally think that a lot of people that are buying these boats now are spending their parents money on them. There is a lot of money being handed down to the kids (baby boomers) as their parents are passing on. The generation that is passing were savers as they lived through the depression, and their children are reaping the rewards of their hard earned work

Now I am not saying that applies to everyone, but I think that it does apply to a large group

MMS Kelowna does not sell MC no. I think they have Moomba and Supra, but they have Ilmor techs and can do MC service/warranty stuff.

there is nothing wrong with having another dealer here that knows there stuff that's for sure

I never even thought to phone them when I had to replace my fuel pump a couple of weeks ago, that bites

My city's average wage (Fort McMurray) is 170K/year (household). So stands to reason that half of households make more than that. And Alberta median income of ~ 85K mean tens of thousands of families that make more.

So a new loaded MC is well within reach of many here.

Fort Mac is not the norm for income. It's in a unique situation. I wonder how many Mastercrafts are roaming Gregoire lake now. I heard the line up at the dock is quite long on some days..

I won't go to Gregoire on the weekends but I spend all of Summer on Shuswap anyways. There are several MC's up here. Income is not the norm for sure...

Buy used. Pay cash. Let someone else take the hit of depreciation. If you've got a million bucks lying around, looking for a place to go then you can afford the depreciation. As for me, I'll be happy to buy yours in 10 years for 25% of the price.
