Boat shows also provide a great time to mingle with the boating community and hear firsthand how boating is a wonderful way to spend your free time. With all this excitement, boat show can feel a bit overwhelming. To help you save time and money, follow these tips.
Do Your Homework
Boat shows are a great way to begin the boat buying process. But with all the different styles and sizes to choose from, it’s hard to make a decision if you haven’t already narrowed down your choices. Before attending our boat show, visit our website and start looking at the different models we sell. While browsing, think about what you’ll use your boat for and how many people you’ll take out at a time. That way, when you visit us at the boat show, you’ll be able to spend more time on the boat that fits.
When you come to the boat show, you should bring a few things with you.
- Questions - bring all your questions. We’ll have an expert team on hand to help you understand everything there is to know about the boating lifestyle and the different boats.
- A Notebook - you may want to take notes about and/or compare different boat models, sizes, how many people can fit or how much fuel the boat can hold. Having a notebook handy will come in handy.
- Printed Address Labels - if you plan to visit multiple venders during the show, bring pre-printed address labels that have your name and contact information. Many vendors ask for this information and having an address label ready to peel and stick will save you lots of time.
You’d be surprised at how many people are too nervous to climb aboard and check out the boat that caught their eye. Go ahead, climb aboard! We’re here for you and want you to feel comfortable spending some time on the boats that fit what you’re looking for. Have a seat at the helm (the Captains chair), open doors and check for storage room or take a peek at the head (the restroom). Want to know more? Our friendly staff will be right there when you need us to answer any question or show you the features that may surprise you.
