Visiting the Lake of the Ozarks in the Fall

Iguana Boat Sales knows that autumn is the perfect time to take a vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks. From the beautiful fall scenery to the fun fall activities, this is one of the best times to visit the Lake area. If you are in need of a vacation, the best boat dealer in the Lake of the Ozarks has the perfect place in mind. Check out these 7 reasons why the Lake of the Ozarks is your ideal fall vacation spot.

Less crowded

During the summer months, the Lake of the Ozarks is jam-packed and the population skyrockets. If you visit Lake of the Ozarks during the off-season, there will be fewer people and you can still enjoy all the fun.

Great prices

Once the busy summer crowds start to dwindle, many local businesses will begin to lower their prices for the offseason. You can enjoy all the fun the Lake area has to offer at off-season prices. From lodging to watercraft rentals, you are sure to find some great deals.

Fall Fishing

In case you didn’t know, the Lake of the Ozarks is home to some of the best fall fishing in the country. Summer season might be over, but fall fishing is in full swing! Don’t have your own fishing boat? No problem! At Iguana Watersports we have fishing boats available, there’s no reason you can’t get out on the Lake and do some fishing.

Delicious Food

You will find many delicious restaurants located throughout the Lake of the Ozarks. Although some of the local Lakefront restaurants close for the season, there’s still a large variety of restaurants to choose from. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong.

Beautiful Fall Scenery

No matter the season, the Lake of the Ozarks is a sight to see. In the summer, you can see the sun glistening off the Lake and people out on boats having fun. In the fall, the leaves are changing colors and they provide a beautiful fall backdrop. You can experience the beautiful scenery by car or by boat.

Mild Temperatures

Autumn is a great time to visit the Lake of the Ozarks because the weather begins to cool down and the humidity is low. If summer is too hot for you, you’ll love fall! During the fall season, you can expect cooler mornings and evenings and warmer temperatures during the day. This allows for a wide range of activities from fishing to shopping at the Outlet Mall.

Fun Fall Activities

There are many fun, fall activities that you and your family can enjoy. Shopping, hiking, fishing, and local community-wide events are all popular activities during the fall. No matter what you like to do, there is something for everyone during the fall season at the Lake of the Ozarks.

No matter the season, the Lake of the Ozarks is a great vacation destination. While we are sad to see the summer season go, Iguana Boat Sales is excited for fishing and everything the fall season brings. If you are wanting to take a vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks and need a place to stay, Iguana Watersports has you covered! They have cabin and condo rentals available. Come visit the best boat dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks and see what Lake of the Ozarks has to offer this fall season.

What To Know Before You Buy a Boat

Making the decision to buy a boat should be easy, right? Technically, it is. If you are wanting something to get away from it all or bring the family closer together, then buying a boat may be for you. However, there are a few things you should consider before making the leap to purchase a boat. In addition to deciding whether to buy new or used, you need to make sure you are choosing the best boat for your lifestyle. Once you have an idea of the type of boat you are wanting, you should make sure you purchase it from the best boat dealer at the Lake of the OzarksIguana Boat Sales has a few questions you should ask yourself to help make the decision a little bit easier.

How Will You Be Using Your Boat

Before buying a boat, you need to consider how you are going to use it. Some questions you should ask yourself are:
  • How often are you going to use it?
  • Are you going to using your boat for any fishing?
  • Will you be out with the whole family wake boarding or enjoying other water sports?
  • How many people will you usually have on-board?
  • How much space do you need on your boat?
Whether your plans include cruising, racing, fishing, tubing or anything else, there is a boat suited for your needs. When buying a boat, you need to choose a boat that is going to compliment your lifestyle. The best boat dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks can help you choose the best boat for you.

New vs. Used

Once you have decided what kind and what size boat you want, the next step is to decide whether you want to buy a new boat or a used boat. There are many advantages and disadvantages to buying either. When you buy a new boat, you can buy exactly what you want and you'll have the manufacturer's warranty. However, often times, the biggest disadvantage to new boats is the cost. Although used boats may be cheaper upfront, they may require more maintenance. If you don't mind a project, then a used boat may be for you. However, if you want to be able to pick and choose what you want in your boat, then buying new may be the better option. 

Where Are You Going to Buy Your Boat?

The Best Time to Buy a Boat

It can be a sad realization for some that summer is slowly starting to come to an end. When summer comes to an end, that usually means boat season starts to come to an end. Fall doesn’t have to mean the end of boat season though! It could actually be the beginning of a new kind of adventure. New boat models are being created for next year and anxious boat dealers start to create discounts to move “last seasons” boats out of the showroom in order to make room for the new boats. Because of this, Fall is the best time to buy a new boat! Here at Iguana Boat Sales, we have put together a list of reasons why you should purchase a new boat at the Lake of the Ozarks during the fall season. 

1. Better Prices

The off-season is when it’s truly a buyer’s market. In the fall, boat dealerships are wanting to clear out their unsold inventory in order to make room for next year’s models. It’s during this time when buyers who are looking for a deal should be shopping. There will be discounts and price cuts on both new and used boats.

2. No Waiting

Boat manufacturers are the busiest during springtime. When you order a new boat, it can take months for it to be built. If you wait until spring to order your new boat, you might lose out on lake time while you wait for your boat to come in. The earlier you order it, the sooner you will be able to get out on the water when the weather warms back up. Another bonus to buying your new boat in the fall means you’ll have the off-season to have any equipment and accessories you want, delivered and installed. Getting all of this done before the start of boating season can save you a lot of frustration and time.

3. No Winterization

Winterizing a boat can be a time consuming and confusing process if not left up to the professionals. When you purchase a boat during the fall season, you can save yourself the hassle and costs of having to winterize your boat.

4. Save on Storage

Another benefit of not having to winterize your boat is you won’t have to worry about storing it either. Storage costs of a boat through winter can be pretty expensive. But if you buy your boat at the end of season, you don’t have to worry about storage costs.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a new boat, the fall is the best time to do it! At Iguana Boat Sales, we have a wide variety of different watercrafts to fit any boating lifestyle. From fun wake boats to family-friendly pontoons, the largest new boat dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks has it all! Stop by the Lake of the Ozarks' best boat dealer to see all the amazing boats we have available. There is no better time than now to purchase a boat from Iguana Boat Sales. We look forward to helping you find the perfect boat!
