What Other Boat Expenses Should a Boat Owner Expect? – Buxton Marine

The weather is warming up in North Texas, and we’ve got our eye on the lake.

If you’re looking to take the plunge into boat ownership, it’s important to consider that there are more boat expenses involved than just the cost of your boat. Buxton Marine recommends that you evaluate your budget and make sure you have room to cover all of the costs below, before purchasing a new or pre-owned boat:

  • Insurance: It seems like every major purchase comes with insurance costs. You’ll want to make sure you insure your boat to protect your investment, and it will be absolutely required if you are financing it. Chances are, your Lewisville boat dealer can provide some insight into who will have the best rates in addition to other boat expenses in this realm.
  • Routine Maintenance & Service: In order to ensure your boat stays in tip-top condition, you’ll want to abide by the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule. This generally means a 10-20 hour inspection, and then maintenance every 50-100 hours of boat time.

  • Gas: This boat expense is expected, but gasoline prices can add up, as you spend more time on the lake. Keep in mind that you’ll need to budget for gas for both your boat and your tow vehicle. Hopefully, you have kind friends who will pitch in to help!
  • Boat Storage: Maybe you are lucky enough to have a large garage or some other boat storage at your home. But for most Texas boat owners, boat storage at home is not an option, so you’ll need to budget in storage at a local marina or warehouse to cover boat expenses.
  • Registration: Don’t forget that you’ll need to pay annual registration fees for your boat and trailer!
  • Launch Fees: Many lakes require launch fees before entering the water. Keep this in mind so there are no surprises upon arrival.
  • Boat Upgrades: Already eyeing an upgraded sound system or other accessories? These features add up, so you’d be wise to add these all up front and wrap them into your cost or add gradually along the way.

 

Once you feel that you are ready to take the plunge into boat ownership, come and see us at Buxton Marine in Lewisville! Even if you’re still in the dream phase, we’d still love to visit with you! Our lot is full of beautiful boats from Nautique, Correct Craft, MasterCraft, and more. We are proud to be the best boat dealer in Lewisville, Texas!

New for 2017: Nautique LINC Panoray Display

There is so much to love about the new 2017 Nautique line, and one such feature that has caught everyone’s eye is the Nautique LINC Panoray Display. Let’s take an in-depth look into all that this fancy new gadget can do to make boating in Texas oh so much more fun!

 

Huge Touchscreen Display

When you enter one of the 2017 Nautique models equipped with the Nautique LINC Panoray Display, it immediately catches your eye! That’s because the screen is a whopping 12.4” wide, perfect for viewing all your boat’s settings easily in one convenient location. The touchscreen is intuitive, making adjustments seamless.

Nautique Helm Command Controller

Nautique provides options when it comes to controlling the boat the way YOU want. When you’re driving the boat and your hand is on the throttle, it may be difficult to move your hand up to the touchscreen. That’s why Nautique has placed a Nautique Helm Command Controller directly to the right of the drivers seat, providing another easy access way to control everything within your LINC Panoray System.

 

Intuitive Display with Everything at your Fingertips

Every setting on your 2017 Nautique boat – from the ballast to the speed – can be controlled on your LINC Panoray. The speedometer is central on the screen – allowing you to make adjustments in seconds – and every other setting can be fine tuned for wakesurfing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, and so much more!

 

Save Individual User Profiles for Different Activities

The LINC Panoray System is able to store user profiles for all your different activities and riders behind your boat! Simply select the user setting you want to use and there are good times ahead with no guesswork involved!

 

Nautique Awareness Camera

Never take your eyes off the front of the boat with the use of the Nautique Awareness Camera, allowing you to see everything happening behind your boat within the LINC Panoray Touchscreen Display.

 

Ready to make 2017 the best year yet with a brand new 2017 Nautique boat?! Visit Buxton Marine – your Dallas Nautique dealer – to view our wide selection of 2017 boats equipped with the LINC Panoray System.

 

Good times ahead!

How to Choose the Perfect Wakeboard – Buxton Marine Lewisville

At Buxton Marine – the leading boat dealer in Lewisville, Texas – we know a thing or two about wakeboarding and water sports. If you are looking to start wakeboarding, it’s important to know that all wakeboards are not created equally. Follow these tips for choosing the perfect wakeboard:

 

#1: Have Your Own Board

This may seem like a no brainer, but some new wakeboarders who are just trying out the sport try to share a board with a buddy. Financially, it makes sense, but neither of you is going to be getting the most of our your board. Just like any equipment, a perfect wakeboard needs to be tailored to your individual needs, skill level, and size.

 

#2: Know What’s at the Core

Wakeboards are generally made with a foam core or a wood core that is then wrapped in fiberglass. Both boards have their pros and cons: Wood boards are said to add that extra “pop” off of the wake and have more flexibility, but fiberglass boards tend to be more durable – not to mention cheaper. The perfect wakeboard for you will depend on your individual needs.

 

#3: Consider your Riding Style

Do you want to switch which foot is forward, or do you prefer to keep the same foot forward at all times? You can purchase either a single tip board or a twin-tip board depending on your needs and riding style.

#4: Look at Fin Styles

Who knew there were so many options for wakeboards in the fins alone! You can get deeper fins for beginners, shallower fins for more advanced wakeboards, or no fin at all. The fins help control the board in the water, so generally speaking, the more advanced you are, the less you will rely on a fin for support.

 

#5: Get Supportive Bindings

As you progress in your wakeboarding abilities, having bindings that fit to your feet will go a long way in helping you improve and find the perfect wakeboard. Each manufacturer offers a wide variety of bindings; just find the one most comfortable for you!

 

Interested in buying a new wakeboard in Dallas? Come see us at the Buxton Marine Pro Shop! We are your leading Nautique dealer and carry a huge selection of wakeboards by Ronix, Hyperlite, Liquid Force, Inland Surfer, and more.

Winter Boating with Nautique – Buxton Marine

We live in Texas, which means that even though it’s the holiday season, the temperatures can still be in the upper 80s! Not to mention, we haven’t really had any cold snaps to cool off the water. All of these things are good for boaters in the state of Texas, who want to extend their boating season even longer. Get the most out of your Nautique boat this fall and winter with these winter boating tips:

 

  1. Use the Seat Heaters

Here’s a fun fact about the 2017 Super Nautique: it’s got seat heaters! Ever feel the chill after a long ride on the water and need to warm up – especially if the weather is cooler or overcast? The Super Air Nautique comes equipped with heated helm and loveseat seating – all with the push of a button. It’s pretty nifty, and once you have it, you’ll never go back!

nautique-heater-button

  1. Consider a Wet Suit

A wet suit is a must if you are going to get in the water when it’s cooler outside. A wet suit will help insulate your body and take the chill off, allowing you more comfort as you use your Texas wakeboard boat.

 

  1. Use Navigation Lighting

As the days grow shorter, the sunset can sneak up on you. Assess your navigation lighting and make sure it is working properly. When visibility is limited, it is important to use this lighting so that other boats can see you on the lake.

 

  1. Watch the Weather

Winter storms can sneak up on us in Texas! Make sure you watch the weather before boating in Texas to make sure you are not surprised or caught off guard while on the lake.

 

Buxton Marine is your Dallas Nautique dealer, and we would love to show you around the showroom! Imagine yourself in a beautiful new Super Air Nautique, just in time for Christmas and winter boating! And bonus – it looks beautiful with a big red bow on top! 🙂

 

Good times ahead!
