With 2017 wrapping up nicely, it’s never too early to start thinking about boat shows for next season. Boat shows are a great way to let loose, reconnect with old friends, and enjoy all the best parts of boating. If you were unable to make it to any of the boats shows last season because of logistics like shipping, you’re going to be really excited when you find out how easy boat shipping is. Before we get into how it all works, let’s take a look at a quick list of the 2018 boat shows coming up.
Lake Havasu Boat Show
Located in Arizona, the Lake Havasu Boat Show is the largest boat show in Arizona and Nevada. With over 130 exhibitors, you will find there’s just about every make, model, and type of boat displayed here. With 27 years of success in the recreational boating industry, this show is fun for friends and family.
Toronto International Boat Show
People from near and far travel to this International boat show to see new boats, appreciate classic, and socialize with other boating enthusiasts. Because this boating show is so large, this is truly a production and one of a kind. There will be boats for sale but not all boats will be shown for public viewing.
Baltimore Boat Show
Enjoy Maryland’s longest running boat show in 2018. Located at the Baltimore Convention Center, this show is massive. There will be boats for sale that are new and used. Some vendors may use boat listings in their spaces because they do not want to bring their boats. Maybe they’ve never heard of boat shipping. You can find out more information on vendors, parking, and travel arrangements on their website.
The International Boatbuilders Exhibition and Conference
Whether you build, design, service, or sell boats you’ll want to come to this show. This is America’s leading technical boating-building showcase. Here you can do industry business, share ideas, network with vendors and peers, as well as be apart of the acceleration of new product development. This is one show you don’t want to miss.
How it Works
So how does boat shipping really work? Don’t worry, we will help you every step of the way from filling out the free online form to the arrival of the boat. The shipping process starts with a free estimate of the delivery cost. It’s super easy and doesn’t take a ton of time. Simply fill out a free online form. This form details the size and measurements of your boat. We gather information like the model, length, and, vessel beam. These help us to determine an appropriate estimate for shipping and delivery. We also include the location of the port pick up and drop off in the estimate so there are no surprise additional fees.
Our team of experts will be working at every point of the shipping process. From paperwork to delivery, you can trust that your ship is in good hands. Whether you’re shipping it for retail purposes or personal, we can ship it. Sometimes shipping a boat can occur by land. In this case, we will calculate the mileage. This cost can vary but typically costs around 1.50 per mile. This is a reasonable price to ship such a large vessel. Insurance, dock arrival time and departure, as well as vessel maintenance, is included in the shipping service. Your boat will arrive show ready. In fact, it almost might look better on delivery than it did when you first dropped it off with us. That’s because we take just as much pride in your boat as you would.
Boat shows are just a part of an up and coming exciting boat season. This new year, don’t worry about having to miss out on all the fun because you can’t get your boat there. With our boat shipping services now you can be a part of all the excitement and fun. If you’ve never used a service like ours before you might be initially reserved. However, you can trust that we are going to take extra special care of you and your boat when it’s with us.
