Location is key, but does it help you as the buyer?
As I browse the web looking at these different boats across the country, i've been thinking at how risky this business is. You see in Florida, the dealerships are going to have to order different types of boats then a dealership in Dallas. Now obviously not every dealership is not going to have the same boats othrwise there would'nt be a buisness. If im a boat dealer in Houston, Texas im gonna order boats that appear to that market based on recent polls,numbers etc. Thats common sense but if you open a store in Miami, Florida you will not have the same polls and numbers to go off of. In Miami there is going to be speed boats, center consoles, fast deepsea fishing boats along with yachts of course. In Houston im going to have some aliminum bass buggys, bass boats, Ski boats, bay boats and a few bluewater boats. What makes it fun is the dealers really get to pick kinda who they carry and what they carry, thats what makes shopping fun right? Always do your research before you go to a dealership. Look all over the country and find some prices elsewhere before just settling in your area. Dealerships are always thirsty for a sale and typically have no problem sending the boat to you. After all you are the one paying for it right? Also keep this is mind as the boat show season approaches. Do your research before hand, if not you may get trapped into something you dont even really want. my point is that we only tend to look at whats around us, never broaden our search when we may could have saved money that we really couldnt spend in the first place. Before you shop think about your location, think about what are they going to have when I get there? Do I really want to make this 45 minute drive just to settle for a boat that I will be selling in a few months and losing 10,000$ in value. There is a reason these dealers have selected the boats that they have and the location. Also, make an appointment, reason for that being you may have been looking at this boat for two months and talking to one salesman. When you show up they're busy and you begin to get frustrated and then he has to spend the first 10 minutes diffusing the conflict instead of saving you money. Easier for them to know that you're coming, and have already spoke with their manager and have a game plan in tact. Location is key, dont let it fool you though.
