2018 Novi Boat Show

The boating industry is flourishing in Michigan and across the country, experiencing seven years of consistent growth. The industry has identified and established key messages which dispel the barriers to entry for boat purchasers both new and current owners.
Manufacturers saw the need for entry-level boats and now we are seeing them on the market. They saw the growing interest in cross over boats allowing boaters to fish, tow, and cruise all on one vessel, and more boats are fulfilling this role. Manufacturers are also
committed to providing innovation, comfort features, performance enhancements, and fuel economies which are driving new boat sales for current owners interested in enjoying latest and greatest features while on the water.

Michigan is the clear winner with more than 11,000 inland lakes and more coast line than any other state in the country except Alaska,” said Polan. Michigan has more than 1,200 state boating access sites, 80 harbors and 1,500 marinas.

“You don’t need to live on the water to get on the water when you live in Michigan.”
Value is also an important message. The industry challenges families to take the cost of a family spring break vacation, cruise, or theme park vacation (which is over in a week) and turn that same dollar amount into a monthly payment on a boat. “You might be surprised at what you can afford, and your boat will be a vacation on demand for the entire summer, ready when you are, every night or weekend for many, many years,” said Polan.

With more than 100 exhibitors at the show and featuring boats from 10 – 35 feet in length for fishing, cruising, wake surfing, pontoon boats, personal watercraft, and so much more, the Novi Boat Show offers a true a one-stop-shopping experience.
