Looking for a Pontoon Boat for Sale in Lewisville, Texas? Call Buxton Marine!

Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas carries a wide range of boats – ski boats, wakeboard boats, and of course, pontoon boats too! If you’re ready to purchase a new boat for the summer boating season, here are 4 great reasons to consider a pontoon boat for sale:

 

  1. Great for Large Groups

If you are planning to do a lot of entertaining on the boat, or just have a large family, then a pontoon boat is an excellent choice. Many other boat styles can feel small and cramped, but a pontoon allows plenty of space to sunbathe, watch the riders behind the boat, and just enjoy a day on the lake.

 

  1. Storage Space

One of the biggest complaints we hear about boats is, “well, there isn’t enough storage space.” This is not the case with a pontoon boat for sale! Pontoon boats utilize each nook and cranny to provide all the storage you need for gear and snacks, leaving you with tons of deck space to move freely.

  1. Easy to Customize

The options are endless with a pontoon boat! Talk to the experts at Buxton Marine on Lake Lewisville about speaker systems, lighting, and other accessories that can make the pontoon uniquely yours.

 

  1. Versatility

Do you want to fish but your son wants to tube? Are you planning a day on the lake and want to be able to play and also have room to entertain? A pontoon can do it all! When you purchase a pontoon boat for sale, you know that your boating needs will be met.

 

Ready to make lasting memories on the lake this summer with your family and friends? Think a pontoon boat might be right for you? If so, call Buxton Marine in Lewisville! While we’re the #1 Nautique dealer in the United States, we offer a variety of high quality pre-owned boats to choose from as well.

 

Good times ahead!

Spring Boating Checklist: It’s Time to Start Thinking about Summer

The days are warming up here in North Texas, and those beautiful, sunny days may have you itching to get out on the water in your beautiful Nautique!

 

Now’s the time to begin the process of getting your boat ready for the lake life! Follow these tips on our Buxton Marine Spring Boating Checklist to ensure you’re ready for good times ahead as soon as the water warms!

 

  1. Get a Tune Up

Just like anything with a motor, boats need maintenance and TLC to continue running in their best condition. As part of your spring boating checklist, if you do nothing else, we encourage you to bring your boat into Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas for a service check. Our team of expertly trained technicians will give your boat a thorough once over and make sure everything mechanical is ready for the season ahead.

 

  1. Assess Life Jackets

Take an inventory of your life jackets and make sure you still have the right kinds to meet the needs of your passengers. Was there a new baby born this past year? Or a kid who has grown into a larger size life jacket? Make these life jacket adjustments before the season starts.

 

  1. Buy New Gear

Here’s the fun part! Wakeboards, tubes, and ropes – oh my! What do you need to have fun on the lake this summer? Visit the Buxton Marine Pro Shop to see the latest in gear to create a memorable summer for all.

  1. Develop Your Float Plan

A float plan tells someone who is not on the lake with you what your itinerary for the day is and when you plan to return to land. While you obviously can’t supply a float plan now for every day out on the lake, go ahead and fill in pertinent info that will never change to use as a template throughout the summer.

 

  1. Set Goals

Have each member of your family begin thinking now about what they’d like to accomplish on the lake this summer as part of your spring boating checklist. Does your son want to learn a new wakeboard trick? Are you interested in learning to wakesurf? Set goals now and then work toward those goals throughout the summer. It’s fun to see what you’ve achieved by summer’s end!

 

If you’re considering buying a new boat before the season begins, give us a call at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas or Malakoff, Texas! Clients come to us from all over the country looking for the perfect ski boat, wakeboard boat, or wakesurf boat, and it’s because our honesty and integrity precedes us. Let us find you the perfect boat of your dreams – whether it’s a Nautique or something else!

Boat Ownership: 5 Things to Ask Yourself Before Buying a Boat

So you’re ready to take the plunge into boat ownership – or are you?

 

Buying a wakeboard, wakesurf, or waterski boat is a big decision, and one that takes careful consideration before making the big purchase. You need to know exactly what you want and if it is adequately going to fit your needs.

 

Buxton Marine – the best boat dealer in North Texas – is here with 5 things you need to ask yourself before buying a boat:

 

#1: What Do You Envision Yourself Doing on the Lake?

Think about a beautiful day on the lake. What are you doing? Are you watching the kids tube – or are you on a wakeboard perfecting your craft? Before buying a boat, make sure that the boat can do everything you want it to do. Make a comprehensive list of all the things you want and then find the boat that fits all of those needs. The purchase is too big not to make it all work.

 

#2: Are you Looking for New or Used?

There are pros and cons of both, so before beginning your search, determine if both would fit your needs. New boats come with warranties and the latest comforts and technology, while older boats have lower price tags.

#3: Are Your Finances in Order?

Think about the best way for you to achieve your dream of boat ownership. Through Buxton Marine, you have access to the most competitive rates on boat financing. Simply visit with a Buxton Marine sales associate for more details.

 

#4: Which Dealer and Manufacturer is Right for Me?

Each manufacturer and boat dealer comes with their own areas of expertise, so it’s important to find the one that is right for you. Buxton Marine is the best boat dealer in North Texas and the #1 Nautique dealer in the United States. We know our stuff and the Buxton Marine name is one you can trust for years to come.

 

#5: Can You Operate the Boat Safely?

Once you’ve purchased your dream boat, it’s important to take a crash course in running it properly. Take boater’s safety courses and operating courses so that you know what you’re up against and can maximize your fun on the lake.

 

When you’re ready to purchase your new boat, give us a call at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas. Good times ahead!

5 Tips for Pulling a Water Tube for the First Time

You’ve just purchased your new boat and are ready to have some fun! Chances are you’ll be using that new boat (hopefully it’s a Nautique!) to pull riders on a tube. If you’re planning on pulling a water tube for the first time, here are 5 tips from Buxton Marine – your Lewisville, Texas boat dealer – to get you started:

 

  1. Riders Must Wear a Life Jacket

This should be a no brainer, but it bears repeating. While you may not always feel the need to wear a PFD onboard the boat, wearing one while tubing is a must.

 

  1. Consider the Rider’s Skill Level

If you are pulling a water tube for the first time, it’s smart to start slow to get your bearings on how your boat handles turns, waves, and bumps. Check your boating manual before starting for guidelines on recommended speed for towing riders, maximum weight, towing speed, etc.

 

  1. Designate a Lookout

Designate someone on the boat as the official lookout who will watch the tube and see how the riders are doing. Are they signaling to go slower? Are there obstacles coming up? Has someone fallen off? Your lookout is an extra set of eyes and ears on the lake.

 

  1. Get the OK from the Riders Before Starting

Before starting your water tubing ride, have the riders signal that they are ready to begin. Each rider should be in ready position, holding on to handles and aware of how to shift their weight safely on the tube.

 

  1. Beware of Taking Wakes Too Fast

As your riders get more comfortable on the water, it can be fun to cross over existing wakes in the water. Before doing so, be sure to slow down. Depending on the tube and it’s weight, the tube can take pretty high bounces over those wakes, which can cause back injuries.

If you just bought a new wakeboard boat – Nautique, MasterCraft, etc. – and are ready to pull a water tube for the first time, don’t hesitate to come into Buxton Marine – the boating experts in Lewisville, Texas. Our team can show you the best tubes on the market in our Buxton Marine Pro Shop and offer safety guidelines for each.

 

Good times ahead!

Boating 101: How to Operate Your Boat Safely in a Storm

In Texas, the weather can change on a dime, and this happens whether you are on land or water! If a great day on the lake turns south and clouds begin to roll in, make sure you know how to operate your boat safely in a storm. Here are a few boat safety tips from Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas to help you navigate the storm effectively!

 

  1. Put Life Jackets On

Locate a life jacket for each passenger and make sure each person on board the boat is wearing one. This is an absolute must in any stormy situation!

 

  1. Activate Navigation Lights

In order to avoid collisions, be sure to turn your navigation lights on. It’s smart to give yourself a refresher in using your navigation lights properly before getting on the water this next season.

 

  1. Reduce Speed

Keep your boat moving forward to shore, but at a lower speed, paying close attention to your surroundings. Head to shore if it is safe to do so.

 

  1. Have a Float Plan

Before heading out for the day, be sure to alert someone to your plans – where you will be boating, how long, etc. This is called a Float Plan and it will give you peace of mind for any day on the lake – stormy or not.

 

  1. Cut Waves at 45 Degrees

If you run up against large waves and are trying to operate your boat safely in a storm, try to maneuver your boat to cut the wave at a 45-degree angle. This will help avoid water rushing overboard and into the boat.

 

  1. Watch for Signs of Bad Weather

One of the best ways to navigate stormy weather is to avoid it all together. Be sure to check the forecast before going out on the lake, and watch for signs of bad weather rolling in. Head to shore and call it a day if the temperature begins to drop suddenly, you see dark clouds or lighting, or if there are vertical clouds, as all are signs of storms.

 

Buxton Marine – the #1 boat dealer in North Texas – wishes you good times ahead on the lake!

Best Boats on the Market: Super Air Nautique G23

Boating Magazine recently named Super Air Nautique G23 one of the best boats on the market and we could not agree more! Nautique makes the best boats for wakeboarding, wakesurfing, or any watersports you can think of! As the #1 Nautique dealer in the nation, we stand behind all of the Nautique products. Here are a few reasons we love the Super Air Nautique G23:

 

Epic Waves

The Super Air Nautique G23 utilizes best-in-class technology, as it creates the perfect waves with the Nautique Surf System. With the push of a button, you can make adjustments to the wave. Higher, shorter, longer – the choice is yours. Want to switch sides? No problem! No fiddling with ballast bags; Nautique makes the most epic waves for wakeboarding or wake surfing with zero hassle. There is a reason that pro surfers and wakeboarders prefer Nautique over the competition!

Best-in-Class Technology

Best-in-class technology is what truly sets the Nautique G23 above the rest! Not only does the beautiful touchscreen display show you the Nautique Surf System controls, but it lets you control just about anything with the touch of a button. We love the new steering assist – perfect for a boat the size of the G23 – and the rear camera view that is now mounted on the tower for the 2018 model year. The competition can’t touch the intuitive features available on the Nautique G23! Not to mention, the entire interior of the 2018 Nautique model is absolutely gorgeous.

 

If you’re interested in a new boat for the 2018 boating season, then you must check out the best boats on the market at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas! Our staff is knowledgeable on all things Nautique and can explain why it’s a great investment and will be tons of fun for your family and friends. We’ll even take you out for a test-drive so you can see the beauty of the G23 in action.

 

Good times ahead!

Don’t Miss the Dallas Boat Expo: Feb. 2-4 and 8-11!

If you’ve even considered buying a boat this spring or summer, then do yourself a favor and visit Buxton Marine at the Dallas Boat Expo – Feb. 2-4 and Feb 8-11!

 

The Dallas Boat Expo is a great chance to see many of our top Nautique models up close and personal. You’ll have a chance to walk the boats, see the features, and talk with our knowledgeable sales staff. Here are a few questions we’d recommend asking as you walk around and visit with the various vendors at the Dallas Boat Show:

How is the Boat Constructed?

Nautique stands behind each of its boats and the quality craftsmanship that goes into each and every model built. Be sure to ask questions about the construction of the boat, with particular focus on the hull. Asking each manufacturer these same questions should help distinguish the best boats on the market.

 

How Does the Ballast Work?

Planning to do a lot of watersports with your brand new boat? Then be sure to ask about the ballasts. Nautique boats produce amazing waves with our factory ballast and nothing more, but other models require additional ballasts, special operating instructions, etc.

 

Which Watersports is the Boat Best For?

Before attending the Dallas Boat Expo, think about how you plan to use the boat. Wakesurfing? Wakeboarding? Tubing? Skiing? While we can’t speak for every manufacturer, we can say that Nautique puts lots of thought into each model, and each model is perfectly designed with different sporting needs in mind. Talk to our sales staff to understand which model would be right for you!

 

Where is the Storage?

While usually an after thought, storage in your new wakesurf, wakeboard, or ski boat is important! Think about what toys you’ll be on the lake with and where to store them. Look for roomy compartments and hidden storage that maximizes the space in the boat design.

 

These are just a few of the important questions to ask as you make the rounds at the Dallas Boat Expo! Be sure to come see us at our Buxton Marine booth. We are proud to be the best boat dealer in Dallas, Texas!
