How to choose the right boat for you and your family
At Sunrise Marine, we do things a little differently than our competitors. When a customer arrives at our lot, we interview them. What I mean by that is we ask pertinent questions as to how they will be using, transporting, storing, rigging, etc… their boat. In a nutshell, what are they looking for? A lot of people come to our stores thinking they know exactly what they want, and end up leaving with something else. They are much happier when this happens because they have the boat they really want.
Here are some questions to ask yourself before you buy a boat:
What do you like/dislike about my current boat?
What do you wish was different?
What brands are you considering and why?
What kind of boating have you done in the past?
What kind of boating do you want to do?
How many people will be using the boat? What are their interests?
Those are just a few of the questions you should ask yourself before buying a boat.
Boats are a big investment. When you are shopping, get what you want. You do not ever want to look in the driveway or lift and say “I did okay, but that Chaparral would have been better.” In the long run, the better quality boats will always bring better resale.
Sunrise Marine has been in business for over 15 years in the Destin, FL area. We recently opened up a second store just outside of Mobile, AL in Daphne. We carry only the top brands and offer them at the absolute best prices. We sell over 500 boats a year which enables us to have priority and volume buying with our manufacturers. This savings is passed on to our customers. Shop the rest, but buy from us. You will always get the best deal and best service.
Brands we carry: Chaparral Boats, Robalo Boats, World Cat Catamarans, Glacier Bay Catamarans, Bennington Luxury Pontoons, Carolina Skiff, and Cape Horn Fishing Boats.
