    Why would they buy a company? Why not just engauge one to design their boats

    they are desparate for "provenance"....something seriously lacking in any Chinese yard....so the think they can simply "buy" it.....problem solved.

    The boats will be crap of course, un;ess western personell are allowed to control QC, including product sourcing, but the design provenance may suck some poor ******* into parting with his money before he realises what he has bought.
