What Is the Best Time of Year to Buy a Boat?

Here is a some friendly advice from our seasoned team of loan agents.

“Anytime! Boating is a lifestyle and a fantastic way to create life-long memories with friends and family. Summer and spring are great times to buy and get immediate use out of the boat. However, fall and winter can also be a great times to order boats for the spring and find pre-owned boats from private sellers who are looking to sell and upgrade to a new boat in the spring.” — Lynda Kemppainen

“The best time of year to buy a boat is when the customer is ready. There are so many factors that is would be impossible to nail down the “best” time of year. At the end of the boating season, you may be able to get some good deals, but you will be dealing with limited inventory and may not be able to find the boat that you want. You will also have to be paying for a boat that you will most likely not use for at least a few months, so storage cost becomes a factor too. In the late winter and early spring, prices will probably be a little higher, but you can get exactly what you want as more inventory is typically available.” – Michael Hunt
