Coeur d’Alene Boat Show, a First for North Idaho
In their quest to offer clients a stellar boating experience, the Hagadone Marine Group (formerly Yacht Club Sales & Service) has opted out of the annual Spokane International Boat Show. They will be holding a special Coeur d’Alene Boat Show and Sales EventJanuary 21st through February 5th at their Blackwell Island showroom next to the Cedars Floating Restaurant on beautiful Lake Coeur d’Alene. This will be the first Show at the recently remodeled facility.
“This new location will give us the opportunity to present our entire stock of 2012 Cobalt, Carver, Malibu, Axis and Regal Boats as well as our full line of pre-owned boats.” said Craig Brosenne, General Manager of the Hagadone Marine Group. Brosenne indicated that studies show eight out of ten buyers want an on-the-water demonstration before finalizing their purchase. Having our boat show at our Blackwell Island venue will allow our buyers this opportunity. “When was the last time you purchased a car without driving it first?” asked Brosenne.
We will be unveiling nine never before seen models from wakeboarding, to sports boats, to yachts. This show will feature the latest innovations in marine technology.
“We still believe boat shows are important and get people excited about boating,” Brosenne said. “By staging a free event at our 25,000 square foot indoor facility, we provide the buyer with the best selection of models to select from at one location”.
Paul Nielsen, Hagadone Marine Group Director of Sales says the 15 day Coeur d’Alene Boat Show and Sales Event will feature more than 100 new and pre-owned boats from 18 to 42 feet in length worth over 7.5 million dollars. “Boat slips at our 3 marinas, which are constantly in short supply, will be available with the purchase of select boats. Having everything in one location on the water will give our customers the opportunity to view and test drive every new and pre-owned boat we have.” added Nielsen. “We’re the largest boating facility in the Pacific Northwest and this will be a unique opportunity for people to enjoy tremendous value and the finest in family boating. Our boats will be priced to sell at better-than-boat-show pricing,” said Nielsen.
In addition to the renovated showroom, the Hagadone Marine Group will be adding a 10,000 square foot Service Center to enhance the premium service that our quality brands and our 2,500 clients deserve. The 60 year-old Yacht Club Sales & Service recently changed its name to The Hagadone Marine Group and is located on Blackwell Island, next to the famous Cedars Floating Restaurant.
The Coeur d’Alene Boat Show is free to the public.
