  • Absolutely!
  • In general, most boats at the show can be boarded, with the exception of the superyachts and megayachts.  In some cases, you may have to go through a qualifying process to get on board a boat, in others, you can just take your shoes off and go.  Access is granted at the discretion of the exhibiting manufacturer/dealer
  • Yes, but not necessarily. The advantage of the Boat Show is that there will be plenty of representatives and dealers on site ready to start negotiations with you at the Show. Visitors who purchase tickets from our website are then sent a short survey in which your answers help us to match you with a dealer or manufacturer that has something to offer that matches your needs.
  •  Look for banks that offer more than the typical monthly payment plan. For example, you may be more comfortable with a seasonal payment plan that allows you to skip up to three consecutive monthly payments per year and continue to skip the same months each year for the life of the loan. This option can be especially attractive for people with seasonal variations in income, such as contractors, sales representatives, retailers, consultants, and others.
       
    Or for those with a large seasonal bonus, an annual payment plan option may be best. With this option, customers make just one payment a year, and can delay the first payment up to six months for some “breathing room” between the time of the down payment and the time of the first payment.
       
    For those who wish to pay down the principal faster in order to save on finance charges and shorten the loan term, a bi-weekly payment option may work best.
        
    If you want to avoid check writing hassles and guarantee that your payments will be on time each month, you may prefer to make automatic loan payment deductions from a checking or savings account through Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfers.
  • A professional survey is essential for all used boat sales, and most lenders require one. These surveys can uncover information about the boat’s condition that you may not have known. Getting a professional survey before you buy could save you thousands of dollars down the road. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
