Taiwan and China: about 100 orders on the books this year
Marco Polo, Ron Holland design built by China-based shipyard Cheoy Lee
Price around 16,650,000 euros
According to the Herald Tribune "Asian yacht-builders offer prices that average about a third less in Taiwan and up to half as much in China compared with boats built in the West. But low prices sometimes come with lower quality, especially from China, and less individuality, according to industry analysts."
