Affordable Boating

Be sure to visit the new “You can Afford to Go Boating” Area in Centennial Park at the show. If you think you can’t afford to experience the finest boating waters in the country, you may want to stop by our special display of boats that you can own for $250.00 per month or less.  Boat financing is getting easier and there are a surprising variety of boats available to you. There will be no sales people so you can inspect the boats at your leisure.  Each boat will have a sign with all the necessary information and where you can go within the show to talk to a salesman should you wish.
