Are you making plans to see us at the Atlanta Boat Show, January 9-12, 2014? We sure hope you are. And in order to make your boat show experience not only educational but fun, we have some tips to help make finding and buying the boat of your dreams easy.
Choose Your Day Wisely
Thursday and Friday will have lighter crowds and shorter waits for boat displays. Saturday and Sunday typically have “bumper to bumper traffic”. It’s best to arrive at opening time. Pick your favorite few boats to inspect before the rush and then wait until the middle of the afternoon to check out some of the other popular models.
Do Your Homework
There are different styles and sizes of boats to choose from. It’s hard to make a decision if you haven’t already narrowed down your choices. Before attending the 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 show, you’ll be able to spend more time on the boat or boats that interest you the most.
When you come to the boat show, bring these 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.
- 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. Record your observations about each boat that you are interested in. Write down what you liked or didn't like about each model.
- Camera - Bring your camera to take lots of pictures. Yes, we have brochures but they sometimes leave out images of features you may consider important.
Don't be shy! Have a seat at the helm, open doors and check for storage room or take a peek at the head. Remember to wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off since shoes are not allowed on boats. We want you to feel comfortable spending time on the boats that will fit your lifestyle.
As always, our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
We can’t wait to see you at the Atlanta Boat Show! Which day do you plan on visiting us?
