  utterly wrong!

I don't know where you get your info from, but the cost to Tiderace in building their boats means their margins are considerably lower than those of other British manufacturers.

The first step in the logic, is that Valley, PH, Rockpool and NDK all make their boats in-house, so they save on the cost of production by not having to make a third party company some profit for doing so.

The second is that the materials and processes used by Cobra are much more expensive than those used by those other manufacturers in producing the boats.

The third is that Cobra are not a cheap place to build boats. The Cobra built Tiderace boats are far, far higher specification than the ones built in Finland by Charger and it is not cheaper to build them in Thailand than it was in Finland.

The fourth is that Tiderace must include the cost of shipping boats by 20' or 40' container from Thailand before the boats reach either Europe or the US, whereas the others are based in Europe and have much lower shipping costs.

Frankly, I wish people who didn't have the foggiest clueregarding what they're talking about would stop talking as if they did.
