This post has been brought in partnership with the Atlantic City Boat Show (ACBoatShow), but as usual, all opinions are my own.
It is no secret that as soon as my son goes off to college, our two-year plan is to sell our large home, move to a warmer, tax-friendly State, buy a smaller home by the water and a boat! My husband has been to a few used boat sales in the past just to check out what’s on the market and I can’t wait for the day I finally am able to take one home! We’ll need to give it the best maintenance we can and make sure we are stocked up on things like protection spray and bronze fasteners so we aren’t letting it go to ruin.
Since I firmly believe you attract what you think and feel, we were excited to visit the Atlantic City Boat Show to check out the all the options!
You might not be looking for boats for sale in Fort Myers or anywhere else, but I highly recommend attending such shows, as it would offer fun for the whole family, and who knows, you might end up changing your mind as well!
Here Are 5 Reasons Why You Should Visit The #ACBOATSHOW
Checking out the boats
Of course your first reason should be to check out the awesome boats!
We’ve found ourselves immersed in a sea of options, (pun intended) from fishing to luxurious boats!
Here are some of my favorite boats at the ACBoatShow:
My son has asked us for a jet ski for the longest time! We also checked those out! SeaDoo has a beautiful space and so many great options at the #ACBOATSHOW!
Loved the Chris Craft boats!
And of course the unsinkable Boston Whaler boats were there!
Nothing better than putting your hand on the wheel and feeling the ocean breeze and the joy of owning one of these boats!
Reason #2 Have Fun
The Progressive space right at the front entrance offers you so many options to enjoy a fun time while learning how to be a safer boat owner and how to save on your insurance!
You can learn how to dock a boat.
Test your skills by using virtual reality! I know your kids will love that!
You can also test your luck and win awesome prizes!
So much more at the Progressive booth! It is a MUST STOP at the Atlantic City Boat Show!
