2013 Bangor Boat Show Preview
Today, Hamlin's is continuing to set up for the annual Bangor show set for this Friday the 29th through Sunday the 31st. Yes, the boat show will be open for Easter, so wolf down those Peeps and Cadbury Eggs and get on down to the Bangor Auditorium. This is probably the last event the old auditorium will ever host, and it's a good thing when you see the Cold War relic next to the shining new Cross Center! That old marvel of engineering with the "V"- shaped roof is ready to retire.
So why drag yourself out on a holiday weekend and brave the masses of water-addicted zombies?
Because Hamlin's is hosting the biggest boat buying party that has ever touched Maine soil. Try 35 new models on site with another 100 or so at our nearby stores. Early season buying frenzies have created a glut of trade-ins as well. We are chock full of used pontoons, fishing boats, and runabouts. All factory promotions including rebates and extended warranty programs expire on Sunday. So, if you want to be on the water this summer, put down the turkey leg or ham bone and get to the show.
Here are some highlights:
Stingray runabouts (5 models)
From high-powered Sport Decks from Hartsville, SC like the 208 and 198 to the budget friendly 195 RX, you'll be able to check out the most popular runabouts in Maine.
Polar Kraft aluminum fishing boats (12 models)
Serious fishing and hunting boats from Syracuse, IN with a reputation for lifetime toughness. Nice selection of family fish & ski models on hand as well.
Scout (6 models)
Fiberglass Sport Fishing models from Sommersville, SC. We have models in stock from 15'-27'. The crowd favorites are the 210 XSF and the 210 Dorado. The new 275 LXF in our Hampden showroom is a show stopper.
Rinker (3 models)
Big, wave-crashing fiberglass V-Hulls from Syracuse, IN perfect for Hamlin's Marina and Penobscot Bay. We'll feature both Sport bowriders and cuddies as well as a value packed 18' Fish and Ski model.
Sweetwater, Aqua Patio, and San Pan Pontoons (6 models)
Unbeatable construction, innovative designs, and the ultimate comfort make these pontoons from Elkhart, IN reign supreme in Maine. There are plenty of posers popping up on the market now, but nothing beats experience.
Hurricane (1 model)
The all liquid-terrain machine built in Elkhart, IN with seating for 10 and a trusty Yamaha outboard. Bar-none...best affordable family trailer boat on the market.
Skeeter (5 models)
The bass boats from Texas with serious swag. Yamaha 2 and 4 stroke power on display. SHO changes everything.
Eastern (2 models)
Locally made in Milton, NH. These Downeast beauties ride soft in the roughest Penobscot slop. Fuel efficient center consoles and cabin models are in stock now.
