2018 Fall On-Water Boat Show


Seeing the craftsmanship and beauty of a new MasterCraft in our showroom is one thing. Seeing one on the water and taking a drive is another. This is your opportunity to experience first-hand why there’s nothing like being on the water in a new MasterCraft.

This is your chance to come hang out and drive a new MasterCraft on the water! We’ll have 5 different models on the water, including an NXT 22, XT22, XT23, X24 and XStar at two separate on-water shows. This is a great way to hop between different models and truly get a feel for the different features and performance aspects that each boat delivers. Bring the kids, a board and invite neighbors! You won’t find a better opportunity to experience the difference of a MasterCraft before the weather breaks.

Cincinnati Showcase – Sunday, October 7th from 1pm – 6pm
Spend an awesome afternoon down on the river driving the various models. And don’t sweat the Bengals game – there is a great outdoor patio area with tvs and cold drinks. You’ll be able to kick back and watch the game in between test drives!

Louisville Showcase – Saturday, October 13th from 1pm – 6pm
If you missed the Cincinnati show then this is your next best option. Captains Quarters offers an awesome riverfront view along with great food and and even better atmosphere. We’ll have the same models on display in the water from 1pm-6pm. Bring the crew and hang out for the afternoon!

Smart Boat Buyers Guide

Every year new boat buyers ask when is the best time to buy a new boat? When we tell them fall most people are left scratching their heads. After all – why buy a boat when you cannot use it for another 4 to 6 months? This is a common misconception that most new boat owners have.

Understanding a little more about boat manufacturing and timing can really help explain why smart boat buyers always purchase in the fall. The following can help you understand why it’s smart to buy your new boat in the fall.

WHY SMART BUYERS KNOW FALL IS THE TIME TO BUY

Boat manufacturers build boats year round. While demand peaks in the summer it would be impossible for manufacturers to mass produce boats only during that time to meet the yearly demand. They have to level production throughout the year and employ staff to hand build them all year long. As a result manufacturers offer their largest discounts in the fall to drive sales when demand is at it lowest. Fall is the best time of the year to purchase a new boat – even better than at the boat show!

HOW DOES THE FALL AFFECT MY TRADE-IN VALUE?

Waiting to buy in the spring means your trade-in is a year older. Smart buyers will trade-in during the fall before their boat loses another model year of value the following spring. You’ll also realize there’s even more savings when you consider that we cover the fall service and winter storage costs! Couple this with the trade-in sales tax credit and you’ll save thousands on taxes toward the new boat. These savings can really add up.

HOW MUCH CAN I REALLY SAVE?

Fall rebates can range up to $10,000 depending on model. Add this on top of the annual show rebates of up to $5,000 and the savings really make a difference. Early fall buyers get the lowest pricing available on 2017 model year boats. Guaranteed.

WHAT OTHER BENEFITS DO I GET?

Buying in the fall is the only way to guarantee your customized boat will be ready to hit the water in the spring when you are. Early buyers are able to customize their boat colors and options, and create the boat that matches their family’s style. If you wait until boat show season, orders can get backed up until spring, thus delaying your delivery time.

HOW ELSE CAN I SAVE ON A NEW MASTERCRAFT?

As new 2018 models arrive that means our 2017 have to go! This means all remaining 2017 inventory is put on clearance; allowing you to save even bigger on all remaining models. But don’t wait… These models are only on clearance while they last. Once they are gone… they are gone!

GRAB SOME SHORTS

While the season is winding down there is still plenty of time to get out on the water to experience first-hand the feeling of a new MasterCraft. We schedule one-on-one demos all the time so don’t be shy. Send us a message or give us a call to schedule a demo at your convenience. And don’t forget – our fall on-water shows are just around the corner. We’ll have several models on the water ready to go. There really isn’t a better way to find out which model is the perfect fit!
