    It is what it is. No, after looking and running a bunch of different yachts from Asia and comparing them, they don't compare to say a Hatteras. I'd rather have a 2006 80' Hatteras MY then a 2010 Horizon, cheoy lee, ocean alexander, outer reef, mckinna, jefferson or any of the others that come with a 3 year paint job because they were too cheap to put on an extra coat of awlgrip, a boat that cruises at 14 knots and burns as much fuel as it's counterpart doing 20 knots at the same fuel rate. Not having to polish ALL of the exterior stainless steel every 3 weeks because it's recycled stainless or not 316, etc etc etc.......The best of the bunch from Asia from what I've seen is the Johnson, and the 87 cruises at 14 knots burning over 80 gph. While the Asian builds have come a long way, they're still lacking and you still get exactly what you pay for.
