Everglades Boats offers new consumer incentives

Everglades Boats announced it joined forces with the National Boat Owners Association to offer its customers access to insurance coverage and other select benefits.

“We are very excited to be working with NBOA. They provide a superior-quality product, and so does Everglades, so it is a perfect partnership. This is a great program for our customers,” vice president of sales and marketing Bryan Harris said in a statement.

A new Everglades Owners Club will offer exclusive benefits through the National Boat Owners Association, including 24/7 emergency dispatch and unlimited free on-water towing for a year. The club will debut next week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Everglades also said it has an exclusive partnership with Best Buy to offer sales, installation and service of marine electronics and accessories to its customers.

“For the first time ever you can select all your electronics at the time you purchase your boat,” Harris said. “Our customers will appreciate the convenience, not to mention the selection and service that Best Buy offers.”

As part of the new program, all products will be installed by the Geek Squad’s certified marine electronics technicians.
