January, February and March are the hottest months out of the whole year for boat shows. When you are interested in buying a boat, boat shows are one of the best ways to try on many different boats, meet dealers and manufacturers and mingle with the boating community.
Boat shows are a great way to begin the boat buying journey. The best way to determine if you are getting a good deal at a boat show is to do your homework ahead of time. This can be somewhat difficult since boat dealers don’t typically have online tools where you can choose your boat’s features and see its costs. There are, however, many great brokerage websites that can help you with pricing information.
You can also use the NADA online guide for pricing information.
