Unless you are lucky enough to live somewhere tropical, it’s likely that you find yourself getting your boat winterized and entering a period of sailing hibernation. As we enter into November, most of us are instead turning our attention to the upcoming holiday season, shopping for presents, getting out grandma’s famous pumpkin pie recipe, trying to keep Great Uncle Joe away from the eggnog. Regardless of how you get into the holiday spirit, it’s likely that buying a boat is not high on your mind. Though it may be surprising, now is actually the best time to purchase a boat.
It is always good to plan ahead, but this year it proves even more important. Given the utterly unprecedented couple of years that was 2020 and 2021, there are a lot of uncertainties with supply, and especially shipping. At RS we do everything we can to ensure you get your boat in a timely manner, but with so many aspects outside of our control, it is a good idea to order your boat now so you can guarantee your boat arrives in time for the sailing season in the spring.
Unsurprisingly, many sailors will wait until spring, the beginning of the sailing season, to start the purchase process. However, waiting until spring can cause a few issues. Not only do you risk your boat not arriving in time, but you might face stiff competition and limited choices. Buying your boat now means that there are fewer people buying boats and you can have your choice of boats. Moreover, there is more ability to customize your boat and add-ons when you order your boat now. If you wait until spring boats may be out of stock and add-on options may be reduced.
Not only does ordering now ensure you get the boat you want in time for spring but you may get a better deal. Find your local dealer here and contact them today to learn if they are running any special deals or promotions.
It may be getting colder, but there has never been a hotter time to buy a boat. Discover the entire range RS has to offer and find which boat is right for you!
