‘Boat Buyers’ Reality Show To Feature Lake Of The Ozarks On The Travel Channel

A new reality show follows families on the hunt for the perfect boat, and the best recreational lake in the country—Lake of the Ozarks—will be one of the settings.

The show, which is airing on the Travel Channel, is called “Boat Buyers,” and the channel describes it this way:

Life is better on a boat! Follow couples and families as they go on a wild hunt for their dream boat, exploring new destinations and all the fun activities that can be accessed by water. Along the way, buyers learn what boat features they can’t live without before they ultimately decide to make this life-changing purchase.”

The Lake of the Ozarks episode will air on Sunday, April 2, at 9:30 p.m. (central time), and again at 12:30 a.m. on Monday, April 3.

The episode will feature the Glover family, which lives at Lake of the Ozarks and shops with the Iguana Boat Sales team to find the perfect boat.

Other hot boating locations featured on the show include Melbourne Beach, Fla., Annapolis, Md. and the Chesapeake Bay, a picturesque Vermont lake, Tampa Bay, and Galveston, Texas on the Gulf of Mexico.

The Overland Park Boat Show, which was held at the end of January recorded the highest attendance since 2007. This is also the first time since 2009 that the amount of paid admission tickets sold peaked the 5,000 mark.

The Lake of the Ozarks Marine Dealers Association announced that the two large Winter Boat Shows, held in Overland Park, Kansas and St. Charles, Missouri both posted record attendance this year. Both shows this year were sold out for vendor space, and featured product exhibited by various Lake area marinas, and other lake related companies.

Mike Kenagy, Executive Director of the Lake of the Ozarks Marine Dealers Association said, “We are extremely pleased with the attendance of both shows this year and many of our association members posted record sales. These shows are always a good indication as to the economic climate for the lake… and right now those indications are very positive for a good year at the lake”.

The Overland Park Boat Show, which was held at the end of January recorded the highest attendance since 2007. This is also the first time since 2009 that the amount of paid admission tickets sold peaked the 5,000 mark.

The St Charles Boat show which was held the first week of March followed suit with overall attendance numbers topping the +20% mark over last year’s highly successful show. This is the 2nd largest total attendance at this show since LOMDA began the show in St Charles. The show also posted a record number of paid attendance tickets.

Roger Hulett of MBC, the marketing agency representing LOMDA said, “We are thrilled with the higher attendance numbers of course, but we really want to know that we are getting our message to the “boaters” that are truly interested in our exhibitor’s products. With the amount of people that said they were individually breaking sales records…it looks like we did. These people that boat at the Lake of the Ozarks are really gearing up for 2017”.

Kenagy went on to say, “We are very encouraged by this economic news, and expect this trend to continue at our In-Water Boat Show coming up at Dog Days here at the Lake of the Ozarks April 21st through 23rd”. This show is unique for LOMDA in that potential buyers are looking at boats that are in the water and can be test driven any day of the show.

The Lake of the Ozarks Marine Dealers Association is made up of over 40 lake area marine dealers, representing all the top lines of boats, marine accessories, docks, personal watercraft and everything else to promote fun on our local waters.
