Monterey Boats, Bills Marine and the 56th Annual Mid Atlantic Boat Show

The 56th Annual Mid Atlantic Boat Show in Virginia Beach, Virginia kicked off this February 5th and continues through Sunday, February the 8th at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. This years show unlike others has the full complement of dealers and boat lines in attendance. In addition to a great boat sale there are fun things for the family to enjoy at the show.Bill's Marine, Bill and Judy Noel with their tenacious staff have brought Monterey to Virginia Beach in style. With an excellent show set up and great communications to the retail buyer. Bill's Marine and Monterey Boats are poised for a great weekend.

Bill's Marine Sales manager Steve Joyner said "we are prepared, organized, set up and ready to go". With unbelievable boat show pricing and a great family feel, Bills Marine is a strong service oriented dealership with outstanding customer service and great product lines like Monterey, Hydra Sports, Pioneer and Stingray Boats. This year Monterey Boats awarded Bill's Marine with a Top CSI award for 2008 and they certainly have a consumer following that supports what the industry numbers have reported. The newest customers at Bills are treated as well as the repeat customers that come back to Bill's time and time again. One of their newest additions is warranty mobile service to continue to support their consumers. At Bill's if your new boat is under warranty they will come to you for your service needs with an even greater flexibility to get your new boat back on the water. In addition, Volvo has extended warranties and Monterey Money is on hand as added consumer incentives.

The traffic at this years event has not appeared to exceed some however, the people I spoke with all seem interested, educated and trying to make a smart decision based on their needs. I feel confident the end result of this years show will be a great one! Good luck to all the folks at Bills Marine
