Get the Most Out of Your Boat Show Experience


Boat shows can be overwhelming, but they have a lot to offer. They allow you to see a large variety of boat types and brands in one location, making it easier to compare styles and models to ensure you’re choosing the right boat for you and your family. In addition to boat manufacturer booths, boat shows also have an area dedicated to boat accessories. There, you’ll be introduced to the benefits of a variety of boating products such as electronics, outriggers, fishing gear, water toys, and more. With so much to see, it’s a good idea to do some advance planning. Start with these great tips that outline what you should do before you go and when you get there. 

Before you start packing, consider these helpful suggestions. Since you’re going to be covering a lot of ground, both on land and on the docks, you’ll want to wear the right shoes for the environment. Shoes should be comfortable and appropriate for walking on the docks, going up and down stairs, and walking on the boats themselves. Remember, most boat shows have both indoor and outdoor areas, so be sure you have the proper clothes for both scenarios. If you’re going to be out in the sun for long periods remember to bring sunscreen and stay hydrated.


Most importantly, when you get there, come see us! We can’t wait to show you why The Grady Life is the best boating lifestyle.
