Inventories for both new and used boats go down over the winter – ordering a new boat in the Spring means you might not get it when you want it – and you could lose some of the boating season – already too short here in New England!
2) Updates and Upgrades
Upgrades and updates to your new or pre-owned boat can be delayed if you buy in the spring. IF you buy now, you can arrange for new electronics, new canvas and other improvements, but if you wait until Spring, you are not on any vendor’s work list schedule, and may not be able to get anything done in the spring rush.
3) Prices rise
During the fall and winter months there are always extra boat incentives to buy – and these can be substantial. Those incentives mostly disappear in the spring.
