Why December is the Best Time to Buy a Boat – Buxton Marine Lewisville, Texas

Ever wondered when the best time to buy a boat is?

 

Well – it’s now!

 

Below we’ll discuss a few insider secrets on why December is the best time to buy a boat and why you should come see us at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas NOW to get a steal of a deal on a brand new Nautique or one of our pre-owned boat models available.

Why December is the Best Time to Buy at Boat

  • Dealerships are Slower: In December, everyone is out buying Christmas gifts and attending parties, with few in the mood to buy a boat. This means dealerships are slower than normal. While this is bad for dealerships, this is great for you! A dealer may be more willing to adjust pricing because they just want to move inventory during a slow month.
  • New Models are Rolling In: Boat manufacturers are a lot like auto manufacturers and they release new model years mid-year. This means that the end of the year is spent selling current year and last year models, so by December, beautiful brand new boats that are about to be last year’s model may end up as a steal before the New Year.
  • Boat Manufacturer Incentives: Boat manufacturers often offer incentives to dealers for selling a certain amount of stock. If it’s a slow month – like December – a dealer may be more willing to cut a deal just to sell another boat and get closer to receiving the manufacturer incentives!

When Should I Shop for the Best Deals?

If you’re planning to shop for boat deals in December, plan to shop on holidays or on Saturdays for the absolute best deal. Research on auto transactions shows that the steepest discounts were had between Dec. 15 and the end of the month. If shopping early in the month, the best time to buy a boat would be Saturdays when dealers know you’re serious and competition is steep.

Boat Storage Tips: What You Must Do as Summer Draws to an End

With Labor Day weekend behind us, it’s time to start thinking about pumpkins, football, and the holiday season. It’s hard to believe Fall is almost here!

 

At Buxton Marine Long Cove and Buxton Marine Lewisville, we hope you enjoyed the summer on your Nautique and wanted to give you some boat storage tips as you begin thinking about storing your boat for the Fall/Winter season:

 

Prep Now for Next Season

Don’t just store your boat – think about how you want to find your boat at the beginning of the boating season next year!

  • Make sure all exterior scratches or dings are repaired.
  • Research the best storage facilities to protect your boat during the off-season.
  • Get a professional boat winterization to make sure the engine and systems on-board are clean and ready to be stored.
  • Get a proper boat cover that will keep dust and debris off your boat while stored.

 

Deep Clean the Boat

Any stains, spills, or sitting water can lead to mildew, mold, and other issues when you’re ready to use your boat next season.

  • Take all of your cushions out, clean, and then store separately. It’s even smart to get a boat-specific vinyl protectant and treat the cushions and other upholstery with that as well.
  • Professionally clean all carpet on board.
  • Check each compartment below to make sure there are no oil spills that could cause damage.

 

Maintenance is Key

Once you’ve handled all the external and cosmetic cleaning, it’s important to use these boat storage tips to maintain the engine and components.

  • Carefully test all of the electronic components on the boat, and repair any issues before storing.
  • Change the oil before storing the boat.
  • Make sure the hull is properly supported during storage to prevent any cracking due to uneven weight.
