Oh HELL no!!!! $80k???? I bought mine a year ago for $16.5k for 350 nights over 25 years. Their financing rate is 13% for 5 years so if you can do cash obviously that's the best. I originally bought the trendy rooms for something like $13k but I didn't like them so upgraded to Bash Ocean View for another $3k. Off the top of my head, you get a discounted rate (couples $250-300 a night depending on season), a butler (who you need to tip but it's nice to have someone on call for you, like reserving chairs at the pool the next day or finding you something), premium drinks, access to the sky roof bar which i think all Bash guests get anyway, special members only events, and just general superior treatment. I also get 40% of my room cost credited back to me to use at the resort (like the yacht you mentioned, its $600 in credit), or the gift shop, airport transfer, other activities. I found the sales team to be somewhat sexist. I went down for the meeting and they asked if I was at the resort with anyone. I said yes, they asked is he your husband, is he your boyfriend, I said no he's just my date. They said our policy is both people need to be present for the sales pitch, I said he has no influence or say in my financial decisions. They kept pushing until I said its either me or its neither of us, so they relented. I have a feeling you didn't have this experience. Maybe they assumed as a female I couldn't afford $80k. I don't see in my contract that I can't discuss my membership. I've also read on cancuncare these contracts are completely negotiable and there are no hard numbers.
