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.

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.
