Why Fall is the Best Time to Buy Your New Boat


Fall: the time of year where boat owners are busy cleaning up their cottage, pulling out docks and getting their boat out of the water in preparation for colder weather. A sad realization for most as next boat season feels like a far off dream that is waiting to be lived. But, fall doesn’t have to mean the end of boat season; in fact, it could be the beginning of a new kind of adventure.

As new boat models are being developed for the next year, anxious dealers devise deep discounts to move “leftover” boats out of the showroom. Don’t believe us? Here are a few more reasons why fall is the best time to shop for a new boat.


Higher Trade-In Value

Trading your boat during the fall versus waiting till spring can mean better value for you. Overall, dealers offer better incentives to fall trade-ins than any other time of the year. Plus, current used boat values are tracking higher than NADA values, meaning you can strike a pretty good deal and use the funds to order your new boat.


No Waiting

When you order a new boat, it can take months for it to be built, so don’t loose out on lake time by waiting until spring to order your boat. The earlier you order it, the sooner you will be able to start making memories out on the water.


No Winter Storage

Winterization and boat storage can cost a pretty penny. If you trade it in by the end of boat season, you could be saving your self thousands of dollars.


With incentives like this, the last question you have to ask is, if you could buy any boat right now, what kind would it be? We hope you consider the variety of value-centric models available from Rinker. To see where your closest Rinker deal is, visit out website here.
