Many of our boat sellers would rather have a bigger window of opportunity for boat buyers to see the boats we have for sale.
St. Joseph, MI (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
Pier 33 of St. Joseph, Michigan has announced expanded dates for the 2013 Pier 33 Yacht Brokerage and Pre-Owned Boat Show.
Traditionally, this annual event has been just a three-day show, held Friday thru Sunday.
In response to boat owner requests and the increasing demand for used boats, Pier 33 has expanded the 2013 show dates to cover nine days. This year’s Pier 33 Yacht Brokerage and Pre-Owned Boat Show will be held September 14 thru 22, Saturday thru Sunday.
“There is quite a bit of effort that goes into gathering the boats together and readying them for the show and many of our boat sellers would rather have a bigger window of opportunity for boat buyers to see the boats we have for sale,” according to Pier 33 General Manager Tighe Curran. “Plus, we’ll have the advantage of two full weekends so we’re less likely to get weathered-out and buyers will have more opportunity to fit the show into their schedules.”
Pier 33 provides boat sellers with a free-of-charge in-water display area, as well as on-shore, both inside the showroom and outdoors during the boat show. According to Curran, the show has been a big draw in recent years because of the timing: before the boats are tucked away for winter storage and while there’s still time to perform sea trials, survey and the other steps a buyer will require to complete a sale. “Many boat shoppers have spent the summer searching and want to make sure they’ve made their choice well ahead of the start of next year’s boating season.”
