The CHF/AUD exchange rate has rised from 1.00 to 1.20 in the last year. Blame the australian government, not the swiss industry. AUD 22.5k is quite a good price for a prooven fast and reliable boat. Ask Landy and Brad why they stick with Scheurer.Must be aiming at a very small market in AUS if pricing is pitched at the G6 level. That would be AUS$27k for a platform. One is about to arrive at that level. There is a total of three G5's in AUS with one being a prototype. Obviously hasn't generated big interest.The boat seeming to generate much more excitement is the Exploder at a much cheaper price. Two on the way and will be very interesting to see how they go against the quick DNA's. They will be in VERY competent hands.The pricing is acctually about the same as the G6, the aim is to have a premium product at a price that fits the market. Sometimes the premium product wins out anyway, like you can get a crappy tablet for $90 at the supermarket, but most people still buy iPads.
