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! From boats to boating gear to boat supplies, our Lake of the Ozarks boat dealer has you covered. Be sure to come out to the Fall In-Water Boat Show this weekend. Stop by and see us - we're here to answer any of your questions!

Why We are the Premier Boat Dealer at the Lake of the Ozarks

Our Lake of the Ozarks boat dealer prides ourselves on offering the best in boating and watersports in the area. If you're in the market for a new boat, boat maintenance, boating gear, or rentals, we're your one-stop for it all! Take a look below to learn a little more about our business and WHY we're the best!

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.

Iguana’s expansion continues with a brand-new Parts and Service Department.  With certified and trained mechanics on our service staff, we offer services from winterizations, bottom painting, all the way up to engine rebuilds.  Our Service Department is available at 4 locations.  Visit them at the 1 MM, the Northshore at the 5.5 MM, the old Nauti Marine in Sunrise Beach at the 12 MM, Four Seasons Marina, and spring 2018 we will be offering Service and Sales from Millstone Marina.

In October 2015 our boat sales lot and showroom from Lake Ozark to 4363 Osage Beach Parkway in Osage Beach, MO.  With this move we were able to increase our inventory exponentially with a large outdoor space and an indoor showroom where you can find everything from water toys to water pumps.  Our growing team is committed to serving our customers and the boating lifestyle.

We look forward to showing you around our properties and showcasing why we're the best place to buy a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks! To make a private appointment or visit the showroom, contact us at 573.355.5027. Get out ant start enjoying the Lake Life!

Schedule Your Boat Winterization NOW
