Now is the Best Time to Buy a Luxury Boat in San Diego

Winter is a busy time for people in the boating industry. The winter months, primarily December and January, are a popular time for buying and selling boats due to the discounted off-season prices. While San Diego may not have a typical “off season”, prices still go down as dealers clear out old models to make room for the latest and greatest yachts.

If you’re thinking about purchasing a boat, now is the time to start looking at local yacht brokerages for the best deals and steals on used boats in San Diego. And because o the winter sales and improved economic conditions, many yacht owners are placing their vessels on the market, providing buyers with a larger and more varied selection.

The winter boat show season – which kicks off the year’s best boat and yacht sales – typically starts in San Diego in January, with the San Diego International Boat Show from January 18-21, 2015. Next up is the San Diego Sunroad Boat Show which will be held from January 22-25, 2015. Boat shows are not only fun but provide prospective boat buyers with the opportunity to learn about different brands, models and more.
