What’s New For 2013? In A Word…Versatility!

September 6, 2012

In checking out the latest trends for new boats that will be coming to a boat show near you, there is one word above all others that stands out: versatility. Where dedicated-purpose vessels (fishing, wakeboarding, day boating) might have been all the rage in the previous decade, there is a definite move toward innovative designs that help you get a variety of uses out of your boat. And it's easy to understand why...you just get more bang for your buck.

It’s a trend that has quickly taken hold of boat buyers as boat builders challenge their engineers and designers to find new and exciting ways to integrate details such as quick-change floor plans, hideaway storage options, and entertainment features to maximize your time on the water. Where as before you may have felt as though you had to compromise, now you can really get a boat that truly fits your lifestyle.

Take the all-new Aqua Patio 250 Express by Godfrey Pontoons, for instance. Pontoon lovers have always enjoyed the cruising performance and upgraded amenities of the Aqua Patio brand, but now you can go from serious watersports boat to a comfortable and luxurious party on the water in the same afternoon. The integrated wake tower with optional board racks, custom-designed aluminum tow bar, G Force triple tube, and an outboard rating of up to 300 horsepower says this pontoon is up for anything you can dish out. But when it’s time to kick back and cruise, enjoy the exclusive tower-supported bimini top, dual cockpit pedestal tables, and stunning carbon fiber pearl upholstery.

The days of one boat for this and one boat for that are done. You use your boat in so many different ways…why not get everything that fits your lifestyle all in one package? These days it’s easier than ever to get exactly what you want. The time has come to say NO to compromise and YES to customize!
