What to Watch for When Buying A Boat at A Boat Show

For many boating enthusiasts, a boat show can be the perfect excuse to go on a shopping spree.  After all, with so many manufacturers showing off their latest equipment and accessories, there’s no shortage of things to spend money on.  You might even be tempted to drive home with a brand-new boat in tow.

However, if you’re going to buy at a boat show, there are some issues to watch out for.  Here’s what you should keep in mind!

Three Important Considerations When Buying A Boat at A Boat Show

1. Bring your family if possible

One great thing about boat shows is that, in almost all cases, you’re free to climb onboard and explore the boat.  This is also a great opportunity to involve your family!  When everyone has a chance to check out the boats and contribute their opinions, everyone should be happier with the final choice as well.

2.Keep all your buying options open

Most boats you’ll see at a boat show are new.  It’s worth spending a little time looking up prices on used vessels as well. Depending on your needs, you can find what you’re looking for withnew or used options. The most important thing to remember is that either choice will bring you the joy of being out on the water.

3. Ask about delivery times

Not all boat show boats can be towed directly away from the show.  Always clarify whether you’ll be driving it off, or if the boat will be delivered later.
