  • Pontoon boats
  • Cruisers
  • Aluminum boats

The Milwaukee Boat Show is one of the largest boat shows in the US. This is mainly due to the fact that Wisconsin is the second most state with the largest amount of boats owned per capita. People that attended the 2016 boat show indicated that they primarily are interested in boats for fishing or relaxing. Many people said that it was really exciting to see all the new models in person.

Best of 2016

One of the most talked about yachts for 2016 is the Boston Whaler 420 Outrage. This is the largest boat, to date, that has been released by the company. It has been said that this boat encompasses everything that Boston Whaler has to offer. This boat was truly made by the customers. Boston Whaler said that they took every piece of customer feedback into consideration when they designed this boat. This boat's popularity stems from the fact that it is great for everything you may want to do on the lake, from an afternoon of fishing to late night cocktail parties; it works for all occasions.

Boat Donation

Of the 2016 boat show attendants, 26% said that they anticipate buying a boat or a boat similar to one that they saw at the show over the next half of the year. One of the problems that boat owners run into is storage. It can be very costly to store multiple boats. Many people tend to sell or give away older boats. If you know someone that has more boats than they know what to do with, suggest the option of boat donation. When people provide a boat donation, they can solve the problem of increasing boat storage costs and help a charity as well.
