Michigan Boaters! This year is the 75th anniversary of the Grand Rapids Boat Show. For those of you that have attended the show in the past, maybe even purchased your family’s dream boat. We’re sure you can attest that the deals were smoking hot! And for the year 2020, nothing has changed except for the innovative boats themselves. The show offers the capability to see all of the different classes of boats under one roof, the greatest deals of the year on current model year boats, and substantial 2020 inventory in-stock with the ability to custom order. Now let’s take a deeper dive into why the Grand Rapids Boat Show is the best time to purchase your family’s summer fun!
All Boat Classes Under One Roof
Dealerships from all over the state travel to Grand Rapids to show off their boat brands at the Grand Rapids Boat Show. Yachts, pontoons, wake boats, tritoons, deck boats, and more are on display. Whether your family is new to boating, doesn’t know exactly what they want, or is just starting the search. This is the perfect opportunity to explore all of your options under one roof!
Maybe your family has made the decision that a new wake boat is a perfect fit but aren’t sure which brand best suits your needs. The Grand Rapids Boat Show will save you boatloads of time and money. Rather than wasting your valuable time traveling from dealership to dealership to see the different wake boat brands. The boat show offers a unique experience, allowing you and your family to get into the boat, ask questions, narrow down your favorite, revisit your options, and maybe even make a purchasing decision.
Here at Premier Boating, we understand that purchasing a new boat is a big decision. And if you can’t make a final purchasing decision at the show, this is a great time to collect brochures, contact information, and quotes! You may leave the show feeling overwhelmed with excitement and confusion and this is normal. Go home, discuss the information you have collected, sleep on it, and decide whether you should attend another day to lock in on the great boat show deals!
Smoking Hot Deals on 2020 Boats
The Grand Rapids Boat Show is often mistaken as only a showcase for the new model year. But in fact, people travel from all over the state of Michigan to make their boat purchase. We’ve heard over and over again how surprised the buyers were with how easy and fun the experience was when purchasing a boat at the show. The greatest deals of the year happen at the Grand Rapids Boat Show, and here’s how!
Almost all boat manufacturers and dealerships offer unbelievable incentives to purchase during the show. Dealerships offer discounted pricing and most manufacturers offer cashback discounts, extended warranties, and/or upgradable options free of charge. But wait, showtime finance rates make these deals and incentives even harder to pass.
Financing your family’s new boat is an extremely popular option here at Premier Boating. Most banks offer reduced interest rates with lower monthly payments at the Grand Rapids Boat Show. If your family falls in love with a boat at the show, it’s important that you seize the deal and low finance rate by giving a deposit and completing a secure finance application. Keep in mind, most reduced rates are only good through the end of the show.
Team Premier Suggestion: Don’t be afraid to ask any sales consultant what purchasing incentives their dealership and/or brand manufacturers are offering at the show. Ask if any of the incentives have limited quantity restrictions. Question what the deal would turn into if you were to purchase at a later date. The inability to answer any of these questions confidently might be a red flag!
Massive Selection of 2020 Boats In-Stock
During the Fall months, the new model year boats slowly arrive to be displayed on the showroom floors. But when it comes time for the Grand Rapids Boat Show, most dealerships have their largest in-stock inventory for the new model year! Here’s what this means for you and your family.
Determining the brand, layout, size, color, and options can be exciting, yet an overwhelming decision for some families. These decisions only get harder to make when inventories begin to slim down towards the middle to end of summer. During the Grand Rapids Boat Show, most dealerships have an extensive array of layouts in different sizes, colors, and with different options. This means your family will have better odds of finding the right boat without compromising. Purchasing a boat at the Grand Rapids Boat Show also promises early Spring delivery with a full first season of fun on the water!
But wait, your family still can’t find the exact combination of your loving in-stock? No worries, ask about custom ordering your boat to be exactly the way you want it. By the Grand Rapids Boat Show, most families have their custom ordered boat on order for early Spring delivery. But, it may still be early enough to expect a mid-Summer delivery.
Team Premier Suggestion: Most manufactures build slots fill up quickly during the Fall and early Spring. Therefore, make sure to inquire about the available remaining build slots and their delivery time frames.
