From the boat show

Now I know marketing pieces are generally designed to position a particular product or service in a flattering light. I'm in sales. I get it.

What I don't fully get is what seems to be a trend where as the price of the boat goes up, some companies assume (or have a marketing firm suggesting to them) that the consumer awareness and sophistication goes down.

For example- Look at what I received. I gave the rep that handed this to me a good belly laugh as I perused this. There is no mention of what boat, model, engine, configuration, or any other critical factor that we understand, as educated (in surfing) consumers know have a big affect on waves. How anyone would think that someone in the market for a 150K plus boat would just accept these "results" as chapter and verse kinda blows my mind.

Yes perhaps the wave behind my X25 was a 6, but no way a X23 isn't a 10.

Same here, I tried to resize it but then it is too blurry.

Judging by NSS's placement on the page, I'd say a Nautique dealer.

It is rather small though, like others posted, please upload a higher res! The people wanna see!

Trying for larger view. Not sure why it is compressing the image when I upload it.

Now that I can read it, clearly a Nautique ad.
