I think there are a couple of factors, one is that there always lots of very short lived special offers from manufacturers while the London boat show is on but catching these right without committing to large amounts of stock is difficult.
The other is that at these prices then there is simply very little margin to allow for any problems, so a calculated risk says that further discount is just not worth it (remember the retail price on these is 260 pounds so everyone is discounting to start with).
