Pontoons and Fishing Boats

With the season winding down, we find people are ready to either dry dock or upgrade their boat. With this yearly turn of events there are others who want to sell, and there is also a frenzy of buyers. My father-in-law, Ivan has brokered boat sales since the beginning and has a reputation for being fair and in the know.

What brings enjoyment to the weekend and vacation boater is time with the family. Family time is the central draw. Jake, who works at a Target Digital Marketing Agency and runs our business development came in the other day and said he had had a good summer with his business. His only regret was he wished he could have spent more time with his wife and kids. Ivan showed him a couple well priced pontoons and one or two fishing boats. Jake said he could see his family really enjoying a boat. He walked out that day with papers in his pocket for a 24-foot pontoon. He said he was going to keep it under wraps, in dry dock and then surprise the family at Christmas. When buying a boat, spending more quality time with family is a major motivator.

Advantages of Buying an Older Boat

old shipWe hit our all-time high inventory number this summer with 200 boats for sale or lease. It’s been a busy season. We’ve had more trade-ins and upgrades than we’ve seen in the past eight years. This is a fickle business. We’ve come to expect it.

2016 has been a great year for custom work. My husband, Gary has had to hire extra hands to keep up with the demand. What we like to see is a good boat refurbished with all the bells and whistles. During the off season we had everything repaired by KC Plumbing Services from a leaky faucet to the most important components. Even small amenities, like an on-board water softener for rinsing salty sea water from equipment and diving gear are becoming must-haves for many boat owners. The little luxuries are often the most appreciated.
