Spousal Conversion Kit
Take your significant other boating and let the water and the experience of fun and excitement work their magic! Follow a few of these tips to transform your significant other into a first mate.
Attend a boat show or demo days event, these are perfect places to introduce a spouse to boating! This allows you to compare each boat in person, and discuss your needs with sales consultants and representatives. Attending boat shows can be a family activity and your significant other can get their questions answered by experts about the boat owning experience.
Educate your partner on how accessible the boating lifestyle is and show them on a map the short distance it is to get to the place you enjoy boating. This will ease their worries of a long distance drive to spend the day on their new boat.
Visit discoverboating.com and print out their Boating’s Budget Planner. This compares the cost of boat ownership to the cost of other family leisure activities. Create a family budget that includes your monthly boat related payments to show your significant other that you can afford a boat.
4) Experience the Lifestyle
Get your significant other in the mood for boating by doing a boat rental, and experience a day of boating as a couple or with the family. Bringing the family will get everyone excited about the boating experience and show your significant other that boating really does bring family and friends closer together. Doing a boat rental is a good indication if the boating lifestyle is for you.
5) Taking Time
Purchasing a boat is a big deal, take the time to sit down with your significant other and discuss all the pros and cons of the boating lifestyle. You can then talk them through their worries and let them know why purchasing a boat is a great experience!
