How about John Whitcar and the boatworks? Luxury yachts and boats in general have certainly fallen on hard times, too.

I sold mine 2 years ago. Whew.....

I had lunch with John two weeks ago.. He converted to a custom package for Boat yards about 2 years ago.. and pays stupid annual money to keep it running.. It's written in Pick :roll:

The boat business has certainly been hit hard by the recession, and John's company has had their own issues.. John's staying power is in the fact that the family owns all their properties.. so their basic (rent) costs aren't the same as the competition.. And of course, their reputation for quality is stellar..
