Painful as it is when I think back on all the boats we sold at a profit, that era is long past and you are 100% correct. It is all cash for fun with no investment potential. Buy a stock or gold or something for that.
* this is why the standard advice you see in so many "guide to used boats" articles to immediately replace an A4 with a diesel is so very bad financially. This will in many cases equal the cost of the boat and earn you *maybe* 25 cents on the dollar at resale.
