First looking at the headline I was going to give the standard dismissive quotations of boat stands for Break Out Another Thousand, and "How do you make $1,000,000 in the boating industry? Start with $10,000,000". But, you aren't buying some
$150,000 show-off boat, you're buying a reasonable piece of reacreational equipment. And if your kids like to fish, it's great quality time when they are "stuck" in the boat with you. You said you can afford it, so I presume you are paying cash.
Ahhh - but some of us have had many boats that we have used extensively for many great memories and did not find them 'expensive'.
Life is about choices and peoples choices vary greatly.
Nobody I knew growing up could afford a boat.
No one we knew growing up could afford a boat either - nor could our family.
But we worked hard and were able to change that by the time we hit our 30's.
