Perks of Buying a Boat this Fall

While fall may not seem like the ideal time to buy a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, there are a TON of perks making a boat purchase this time of year. Stop by Iguana Boat Sales to check out our selection of new and pre-owned boats for sale. As the best place to buy a boat in mid-Missouri, we've provided a few of the reasons why fall IS the best time to make a purchase below.



Better Prices

Oftentimes, the end of boating season is the best time to purchase a new boat, as there is end of seasons sales. Winter is boat show season, so many dealers try to clear out their stock to make room in the showroom for new models from the manufacturers. In addition to purchasing a new boat, fall is also the best time to trade in your old boat for a new model. The end of boating season tends to bring in better trade-in values as well, so don't wait until spring to trade in your boat.

Already Winterized

Winterization can be a pretty complicated process. From bringing your boat out of the water to bringing it to a Lake of the Ozarks boat maintenance company, this process can sometimes take a few days to get completed. When you purchase a boat during the fall season, you can save yourself the hassle of winterizing your new boat.



Save On Storage Fee

After winterizing your boat for the season, you need to store it properly. Sometimes, this can cost a pretty penny. If you buy at the end of boat season, you could save yourself possibly thousands of dollars, as you will not have to pay for boat storage.

Minimal Wait

The spring season is the time when boat manufacturers are at their busiest, so sometimes when you order a new boat, it can take months for it to be built. Don't lose out on precious lake time by waiting until spring to order your boat. The earlier you order, the more time you will have making memories out on the water. If you order your boat in the fall, you can be one of the first boaters out on the lake during the first warm day of the new boating season!

Now that you know some of the perks of buying a boat this fall, you're ready to start boat shopping! Be sure to come out to Iguana Boat Sales when you're ready to check out some awesome boats for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks! We look forward to showing you around and helping you find the perfect boat for your wants and needs.

Perks of Buying This Fall:

Buying a boat in the fall has a ton of perks! It's the most cost-efficient time to purchase a boat. Many times a boat will be on sale toward the end of the boating season. Take advantage of the stellar pricing the fall season offers. This also gives you plenty of time to sell your current boat (if you need to) - before the spring and summer seasons kick back up. You will also have enough time to gather any boating supplies you may need. From life jackets to buoys to tie off rope, you'll have plenty of time during the offseason to research and find the best boating gear for your unique needs.

Mark your calendar for this weekend to check out all the hot new items to stock up for the 2019 boating season. You can even check out the great deals from our 2018 stock!

Iguana Boat Sales started our Lake of the Ozarks boat dealership with one goal in mind:  to deliver you exceptional value, exclusive selection, and above all, outstanding customer service.  We have selected some of the best boat brands to offer you the right combination of price, quality, and value.

When buying a boat, choose the best boat for your lifestyle from our exclusive collection of Cruisers Yachts or the Cruisers Sport Series.  The prestige and luxury of owning any Cruisers Boat speaks for itself.  If wakeboarding or wakesurfing is what you are looking for the Malibu and Axis lines are the boats for you, Rinker is known for not only family runabout boats but also cruisers.  The Hurricane Deck Boat is currently the #1 selling deck boat in the country. If cruising the lake or river is more of what you are looking for check out our line of tritoons from AquaPatio, Sweetwater, and SanPan.  We don’t want to forget the fisherman out there so we also have PolarKraft in our lineup which is one of the best aluminum fishing boats available.  We have recently added FloeCraft to our line up of boats.  We truly believe the Afina 3950 is the most versatile boat on the market right now and will be a great boat for Lake of the Ozarks.  As the #5 Cruisers dealer worldwide and the exclusive Midwest Rinker dealer, we have something for everyone including PWC’s and pre-owned boats.

As our company continues to grow we have expanded our sales locations to the St. Louis area.  Customers can now find the same level of customer service with our partner, Stateamind Water Sports in Hazelwood, MO.

Perks of Buying a New Boat

Are you thinking about buying a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks? When buying a boat, you may be debating between new or used. Here at Iguana Boat Sales, we can help you find the perfect boat for your wants and needs. If you're debating between the two, take a look at the perks of a new boat below. Don't forget to check out last week's blog with the perks of used to find out which is the best fit for your family.


You Know What You Get

When you buy a new boat, there is likely been no damage or repairs made, therefore you know the history. When you buy a used boat, you don't always know the full repair history of the boat. This may lead to undisclosed items that man need to be repaired in the near future, causing your investment to cost more than expected.

Warranty Options

Like a new car, many new boats have warranty options available. This warranty can help cover any unexpected mechanical failures that may occur on your new boat. While it's unlikely, sometimes new boats have a few flukes to work out and your warranty will cover this type of work.

Customize Your Order

You can get exactly what you want when you order a new boat. You can pick out the features you want and don't want in your new vessel. A custom order for your boat can ensure you have the exact features you are looking for in your new boat.

Enjoy the New

There's something glorious about a new item and a boat is no different! Enjoy the brand newness of your vessel when you buy a new boat. You get to break in your boat all on your own and enjoy it from the beginning of its life.

Now that you know all about the perks of buying a new boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to check out our current selection. Stop by Iguana Boat Sales or visit our website for information about our current stock. We look forward to helping you find the perfect vessel and keep your family entertained this summer!

Perks of Buying a Used Boat

Are you thinking about buying a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks? When you decide to buy, you may be debating whether to invest in a new boat or a used boat. Here at Iguana Boat Sales, we can help you find the perfect boat for your wants and needs. Whether it's new or used, we'd love to help you find a boat for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you're debating between new and used, take a look at the perks of a used boat below AND stay tuned for next week's blog for the perks of buying new!


Perk #1: More Cost Effective

Buying a used bost is the most cost-effective way to get into boat ownership. Just like a car, a boat is much cheaper as a used option than brand new. The previous owner has likely taken the big impact of depreciation cost. This means you are buying the boat at a lower cost.

Perk #2: New Kinks Worked Out

Any initial issues in the boat or motor will likely have been found out by the first owner. Even though any off-the-line issues have likely been fixed. You may look into having a marine mechanic look over a used boat you're thinking of purchasing. They can give you a good idea of any work that's been done and what will need to be completed in the near future.

Perk #3: Test Drive Your Boat

A used boat isn't off in the factory being produced. You can likely take it for a test drive and get a good feel for the vessel. It can also come in hand as you move around the boat and see the unique features in person. Test driving a used boat is a good idea to make sure it's exactly what you're looking for!


Perk #4: Likely Available Right Away

Many used boats are available for purchase right away. This can give you that instant gratification of your purchase. You can buy your new boat and take it out on the lake on the same day! Instead of waiting for your boat to be designed and produced with a new boat, you can start reaping the benefits of your investment right away!

Now that you know all about the perks of buying a used boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to check out our current selection. Stop by Iguana Boat Sales or visit our website for up to date information about our current stock. We look forward to helping you get out on the boat in style this summer!
