Smart Boat Buyers

Charlotte Ski BoatsNews


New 2017 model boats are beginning to fill our showroom with great new features and color options to design the perfect boat for your family. However, the model year move out doesn’t signify new, exciting 2017 models and technology, it marks a reset to the calendar year for boat buying that everyone should be aware of. If you’re considering a boat in the future, read the smart boat buyers guide below to get the most out of your purchase.

Boat manufacturer’s employ hundreds of workers to handcraft each and every boat. In order to streamline production, raw material purchasing, and employ their skilled craftsmen throughout all 12 months of the year, manufacturers must offer the largest discounts in the fall to stimulate sales when demand is at its all time lowest. Fall is now the best time in the model year to purchase an new boat; even better than the boat show!
Manufacturers offer an early buy rebate of up to $10,000 and boat show rebates up to $5,000 to encourage preseason buyers. We are able to combine both rebates for fall buyers as well as offer a guarantee that fall prices will be the lowest price of the 2017 model year.
Smart Buyers receive a higher trade-in value by selling in the fall of 2016 instead of waiting until spring or the summer of 2017 when the boat is another calendar year older. Today’s used boat values are tracking higher than NADA values, so now is a great time to get the most value out of your boat. Trading in your boat now also means no fall service or storage bills for 2016. We’ll cover all of your fall service and storage expenses saving you additional money.
Buying in the fall is the only way to guarantee your customized boat will be ready to hit the water in the spring, when you are. Early buyers are able to customize their boat colors and options, and create the boat that matches their family’s style. If you wait until boat season, orders can be backed up past spring.
