In part I think what he says is true Ben.

However there may be an upsurge on the way, albeit limited.

If you look at the range of new boats available these days there aren't very many people making boats equivalent to most of the trapper range, particularly the 400/500/501.

Builders have found that it doesn't cost much to make a boat 4/6 foot longer but the premium they can command is considerable.

When the C&C27 was originally designed it was considered a fair sized yacht. Atlantic crossings in vessels of this size were not that unusual. Look at the size of Gypsy Moth!

I can see a time coming when the price of boats like the trapper will harden up quite a bit. Bargains like your 4.5K boat will be few and far between.
