COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho – Hagadone Marine Group in Coeur d’Alene will be hosting its own boat show in 2012, foregoing the Spokane International Show to invite customers to come to the boat show and sales event scheduled Jan. 21 through Feb. 5. at Hagadone’s Blackwell Island showroom.

“This new location will give us the opportunity to present our entire stock of 2012 Cobalt, Carver, Malibu, Axis and Regal Boats as well as our full line of pre-owned boats,” Craig Brosenne, general manager of the Hagadone Marine Group, said in a release.

Hagadone is skipping the boat show and inviting customers to come test out the boats on the water at Hagadone’s Blackwell Island Marine on Lake Coeur d’Alene. The boat show idea will allow boat buyers an on-water demonstration before they finalize their purchase, Hagadone said. “When was the last time you purchased a car without driving it first?” Brosenne said in the release.

“We still believe boat shows are important and get people excited about boating,” Brosenne said. “By staging a free event at our 25,000-square-foot indoor facility, we provide the buyer with the best selection of models to select from at one location.”

The boat show and sales event will last for more than two weeks and will feature more than 100 boats and slips for sale from Hagadone Marine Group’s three marinas. “Boat slips at our three marines, which are constantly in short supply, will be available with the purchase of select boats,” Hagadone director of sales Paul Nielsen said.

“Having everything in one location on the water will give our customers the opportunity to view and test drive every new and pre-owned boat we have,” Nielsen added. “We’re the largest boating facility in the Pacific Northwest and this will be a unique opportunity for people to enjoy tremendous value and the finest family boating.”
