Miami International Boat Show Launches Affordability Pavilion
New Pavilion Showcases New Models that can be Financed for $300 or less per Month

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Feb. XX, 2009 – As the official kick-off to the boating season begins with the 68th annual Miami International Boat Show, February 12-16, the industry expects to find consumers closely watching their budgets. In an effort to help boating enthusiasts uncover budget-conscious ways to get on the water, the 2009 Miami International Boat Show is premiering the Affordability Pavilion, which showcases a variety of boats that can be financed for $300 or less per month.
While recreational boating in the U.S. is perceived to be an activity for the affluent, it actually attracts mostly middle-class participants. Approximately 75 percent of boat owners have a household income under $100,000 and an estimated 95 percent of boats on the water today are 26 feet or less.
“The Affordability Pavilion is one of the many things we’re doing to provide visitors with access to some of the best bargains in the country so they can continue creating memories on the water, ” said Cathy Rick-Joule, vice president of southern shows and Miami boat show manager. “The timing could not be better to purchase a boat with many manufacturers offering the best deals we’ve seen in years.”
Even in the current credit crunch, financing is still available for boat owners, and show organizers hope that the new area will help boaters understand that there truly is a boat for every budget and lifestyle.
Some of the boats featured within the Affordability Pavilion include:
• Achilles LSI290 with the world's best high-pressure air floor tenders can be financed for less than $200 per month.
• Angler 173F can be financed for $250 per month.
