What’s the best time of year to buy a boat? Whether buying a new boat or shopping for a used boat, it’s one of the most common questions among people who want to get out on the water. Well, the best time tends to be in the off-season, which roughly runs through October, November, and December.

If you’re looking to enjoy a wide range of options and lower prices, looking for a boat during these months can help.

Why Buy During the Off-Season?

During Fall and Winter, it’s definitely a buyer’s market in the boating world. After all, the off-season is when most people will want to be selling after enjoying their watercraft throughout Spring and Summer.

Dealers will tend to offer reductions on both new and used boats to avoid the burden of carrying unused stock through to the next season. If you’re buying used, you’ll have plenty of options; if you’re buying new, you’ll be able to pick up a model before it’s rendered out of date by the influx of new boats next Spring.

Also, keep in mind that it takes time for any equipment or accessories to be installed — buying during the off-season provides time to get everything sorted so your boat is equipped to your preferences.
