markust: You didn't look very hard because there were several `powerboats` in that list. Besides that, the term `Yachts` does not exclude sailboats and all the boats I found in that list have engines.

Secondly, boat shows are for suckers. Those are the high retail prices. Good quality yachts can be had for much less than you`ve been led to believe by boat show salesmen.

Its rather like the old argument
'Ive got a 2000 subaru Forester eg..
running for 12 years, its covered its carbon footprint of manufacture keep it going its technically green, buy a new toyota prius
do you actually know the damage it causes to make it?
its astonishing, green solar etc.. need to read the grass roots
I run old cars they was made back in the day,
dont need any more C02 etc for a new one
electric cars - meh still need to charged up by a cable - which is conected up to a point -
which is powered by - coal - oil plants -
non brainer

You're including sailboats. This video and your point was about powerboats. When people think of yachts most think of powerboats. If someone invited me out for a ride on their yacht and it turned out to be a sailboat I`d be confused. My family has chartered a 50` sailboat twice. Not once did we call either a yacht. They were sailboats. All the (powerboat) yachts in your link are 2007 except one which is 2011. Those are all used with no mention of the hours on the engines. A new 50ft (powerboat) yacht starts in the $1 million range. You could probably get one for $800,000 but it would be a pile of crap with small engines. I`m not trying to be a dick. I just go to a lot of boat shows. I dream of yachts but the cost always brings me back to reality.

"You can buy a brand new 50ft. yacht for under $500,000."

Oh my god please give us a link of this crappy new $500,000 50ft yacht.
