ericholstman (7/23/2008)A $78,000 boat will not help you catch fish. Whatit will do is make you look good trying and like a fool when you strike out. Just my opinion...
quote of the YEAR! a guy in a yak can get in skinnier water than any bay boat, and it's a 100:1 on the price. a $78k boat is nice, but let's be honest, it's really for SHOW. gotta keep up with the Jones', you know...

You get what you pay for these boats are made custom to order there are no dealers only factory orders from Wylie. If I am not mistaken a new 24' Pathfinder or Shearwater loaded out is in the high 50's low 60'sKso we aren't talking a huge price difference? I would take this over any other bay boat on the market look good and catch the hell out of the fish.

Here's another thought. Take the $78,000, buy a boat that will preform the same functions, keep your gas tank full for 10 years, take 2 months worth of private fishing lessons from Wes Rozier or Matt Mcleod, haveyour lunches catered by Jacksons, tip your guides $75 per day,ship your awesomenew bayboatto Belize for a week of tarpon, permit and bonefishing and still have some left over for you to drink beer for free for a few years.oke

This sounds like a better deal to me!!
Dude how much do you think a new Hewes flats boat cost not being sponsored by them? Not trying to be an ass or anything but they are high not $78K high but high enough. You act like its huge difference I bet its less than $20K between the Hewes 21 and the Yellowfin 24.

I have been around almost every boat on the market and there is no other bay boat that compares to the 24 Yellowfin. Yes it is pricey but you definately get what you pay for in that bad boy. Boats in that price range aren't for everyone but if I was looking at high end bay boats that would be the one I would buy. Man are they sweat.

The various comments you guys are making go a long way in demonstrating how perception comes into play. If we perceive the value to be true, then it is worthy of obtaining. That is why some people wear a Rolex and some wear a Timex...even thought they both pretty much do the same thing. I've got a friend who, every time he's at my house and sees the 15-20various rods and reels that I have inracks in my garage,makes a commentthat he can catch the same fish that I can, but using his $25Wally World rod and reel combo. I tell him thatthis may be true on any given day, but I sure do have alot more confidenceand feel much better about myself by doing it my way!

Having said that, I do have to agree with Eric on this one...In other words, I don't perceive the value in the Yellowfin.

Yet he has 50k+ boat, (if he actually had to pay retail for it) so he has a top of the line FLATSboat and this is a top of the line BAY boat.

Go buy a Timex and where it for a year and try to sell it see how much you get. Then go buy a Rolex where it for a year then turn around and sell it and what you get.
