Do you have plans to own a new boat……….
Seize the day!
During the ongoing pandemic, boat sales have rocketed globally and the yards who manufacture our beautiful new vessels are struggling to keep up with high demand.
If you are serious about owning a boat in the next 12 months, then its time to place your order now.
If the pandemic has forced us to do anything, it has made us all question our lifestyle choices, determine what quality of life is and make us all seize the day!
The outcome of this change in behaviour, has led to more people than ever before chasing their dreams, doing more leisure activities with family and friends and in our case get out on the water!
In 2021 boat sales, were at an all-time high and this trend shows no signs of slowing down in 2022.
With the shift towards more flexible working and home office, people are no longer tied to their desks! Families are living aboard, while continuing to work and home school!
More first-time boat owners have taken the plunge and are entering the market to spend time outdoors. Seasoned sailors have decided it’s time for that lifelong sailing adventure, adopting the life is too short motto, and for others, with technology advancements and less office constraints, allowing the option to work from the water and get out of the city to become a reality.
The knock-on effect of this is that delivery slots for most new boat builds are now well into 2023 and selling fast. Currently, dealerships face the challenge to maintain inventory and the manufactures, who were heavily impacted by lockdown, labour and parts shortages in 2021 are now doing their best to expand production capacity and meet demand.
Here at Key Yachting, we don’t want to make you wait any longer than necessary, and so we want to be transparent with delivery date and the availability of our brands:
The long and short of it, is that wait times for buyers has jumped from a few weeks to several months and beyond.
SO… if you want to own a new boat sooner rather than later, talk to us at Key Yachting.
We can help you secure your new boat and reserve a delivery slot to make your sailing plans become a reality!
