JD Power Boat Awards and Reviews

I didn't realize until recently that JD Power has a ratings category for boats similar to their award system for cars.
2007 boat ratings are here for 24 to 33 foot express cruisers.

They also have detailed reviews of dozens of boats on their site, and when last checked, no registration or subscription fee was required.

Based on the time of year they report on boats each year, it looks like the 2008 top boat ratings will be out in a few weeks - stay tuned.

Are JD Power ratings completely unbiased, or do boat manufacturers pay a royalty to be considered?
