Producers of Michigan’s 64th annual Grand Rapids Boat Show say this year’s show will feature unprecedented incentives for buyers.

“Rebates, discounts, low-interest financing and extended warranties are often in the mix,” said Henri Boucher, event producer for ShowSpan Inc., in a statement. “Couple those incentives with new and unsold dealer inventories, and you have what could be the best buying opportunity in a generation.”

Scheduled for Feb. 18-22 at DeVos Place, the event will feature more than 300 boats from the 40 dealers who have reserved space for Michigan’s longest-running boat show. They will be showing the newest fishing boats, pontoons, cruisers, motoryachts, ski boats, deckboats and runabouts from more than 100 manufacturers.

The show will also feature other exhibitors, such as specialty vendors with the latest in docks, lifts, electronics and other boating accessories. A large number of Michigan marinas have also reserved space.
