The service man, the front man, the action man, the all you need in 1 man…
Let me introduce you to:
He is here for YOU:
The uncertain MAN!
The needing advice MAN…?
The wanting to know more MAN!
The ready to buy MAN!
His dealership represents a welcoming world of marine supplies from boats, covers, water toys, skiing gear, fishing extras and servicing. He aims to connect with you and satisfactorily meet your needs.
Each dealership either specializes in a particular type of marine area or they cater for a range of interests enabling their shops to be interactive show rooms. It is a great experience to walk around viewing the latest boats and marine products on the floor: check out the colours schemes, seating layout and canopies. Then walk through into the accessories department check your ski style: aggressive or safe / choose life jackets to match your boat / demo fish finders and maybe watch the latest fishing gear video.
Boating exhibitions are even better as they get many dealers under 1 roof for a specified time, allowing you to cover as much ground as possible. Here you can do all the homework you need before making a purchasing decision. These are opportunities not to be missed. Each dealership has most of their staff on site giving you the best selection of people to connect and build a friendship with. You need someone to be able to share knowledge, experience and advice, gain support and a contact to voice when you are dissatisfied.
Nowadays people want more than a fake relationship and a quick sale. You need longevity as your boating experience is a lifelong adventure filled with services, upgrades, accessories, repairs and licensing. Some boating dealers provide testing days, where they enable you to take their products out for a spin. This gives you a good feel for how the vessel rides, what it is capable of and see if its meets your expectations. This also extends the relationship being establish from just a store front to a more relax interactive environment where you are able to see the true colours of the people you will be dealing with in the long run.
Manufacturers empower dealers with product knowledge to enable them to be the best source of information and advice for you. Here you have free advice; expertise and experience all at your disposal so why not make the most of what available to you! Technology has been an absolute gold mine of information providing you with virtual tours through the many dealerships but don’t be lazy. There is more to meet the eye in person than on the PC screen. So get out there, get active and start building those connections!
I look forward to hearing what your experiences have been…
