LA Boat Show Cruises Into Los Angeles Convention Center


JUAN: THE L.A. BOAT SHOW IS READY TO DROP ANCHOR AT THE L.A. CONVENTION CENTER. SANDRA: THEY ARE CRUISING INTO THEIR 60TH ANNIVERSARY. THEY HAVE HUNDREDS OF BOATS DOWN THERE. IT IS A LOT OF FUN — IT IS A LOT OF FUN FOR EVERYBODY. GARTH IS OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW WITH A BOAT. IT IS A PRETTY BIG BOAT. YEAH, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT IS A PONTOON BOAT. WE ARE OUT HERE JUST OUTSIDE TODAY. THE L.A. BOAT SHOW IS COMING 60TH ANNUAL ONE. HOW ARE YOU, DAVE? GOOD TO SEE YOU. YOU ARE WITH THE L.A. BOAT SHOW. I AM. THIS IS OUR 60TH ANNUAL AT THE L.A. CONVENTION CENTER AND AT MARINA DEL REY. IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO THE BEACH, YOU CAN GO SEE WHAT’S GOING ON DOWNTOWN AT THE CONVENTION CENTER, IF YOU WANT TO DROP IN AND SEE SOME BOATS IN THE WATER, YOU CAN GO DOWN TO THE DOCK. ABSOLUTELY. WE HAVE LARGER BOATS, BOATS OVER 40 FEET AT THE PARK AND BOATS UNDER 40 FEET AT THE CONVENTION CENTER. PRICES FROM THE BOATS ARE RUNNING — I KNOW I HAVE SEEN YOU GUYS WITH SOME BEAUTIFUL MILLION DOLLARS YACHTS. WE DO. BUT WE HAVE BOATS FOR EVERY BUDGET. BOATING IS AFFORDABLE AND FAMILY FUN, BUT WE DO HAVE LARGE YACHTS FOR PEOPLE THAT CAN AFFORD THEM. IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE LAST YEAR OR YEAH 2015 I THINK PEOPLE SPENT — IT WAS UP ABOUT 20% MORE. I MEAN, NEW BOATS, AFTERMARKET ACCESSORIES, TRAILERS, TO ALMOST WHAT HALF A BILLION DOLLARS. IT IS. BOATING KEEPS GROWING. IT IS GREAT. THE NEWER BOATS ARE SO COOL BECAUSE THEY ARE MUCH MORE FUEL EFFICIENT. A LOT MORE ELECTRONICS. THERE’S LOTS OF REASONS TO BUY A NEW BOAT TODAY COMPARED TO WHAT IT WAS FIVE YEARS AGO. SO IT’S VERY EXCITING TIMES. AND INTERESTING. UNLIKE FLORIDA WHERE THEY HAVE A LOT OF DOCK SPACE, UP AND DOWN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, THREE QUARTERS OF A MILLION BOATS. THERE ARE. THERE ARE THREE QUARTER OF A MILLION BOATS. A LOT OF MARINAS. IT IS A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BOAT AND WE HAVE WEATHER LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME. THE SHOW STARTS THURSDAY. IT IS FOUR GREAT DAYS, GOES THROUGH THE WEEKEND. IT IS FOUR GREAT DAYS. THERE IS A COMPLIMENTARY SHUTTLE TO TAKE PEOPLE IN BETWEEN. SOUNDS GOOD. WE WANT TO TALK TO DOUG. HOW ARE YOU, MY FRIEND? GOOD. THIS IS NOT WHAT YOUR NORMAL PEOPLE WOULD THINK IS A PONTOON BOAT NO, IT IS NOT LIKE GRAND-DAD’S PONTOON BOAT AT ALL. TELL US THE DIFFERENCE OF THE STANDARD PONTOON BOATS. WHAT WE HAVE ON THE BACK IS 300 HORSEPOWER MERCURY MOTOR, VERY SOPHISTICATED MOTOR. DOESN’T NEED ANY MAINTENANCE OTHER THAN OIL CHANGE EVERY COUPLE OF YEARS. ENOUGH POWER TO WATER SKI. WE HAVE A HOOK AT THE TOP SO YOU CAN WAKE SKI. IT’S CALLED AN ENTERTAINER BECAUSE WE HAVE REAR LOUNGERS BACK HERE. STILL HAVE PLACES TO BARBECUE? RIGHT, WE CAN RECONFIGURE AND PUT IN A BAIT TANK FOR REAL FISHERMEN. WE CAN CONFIGURE IT WITH A BAR SO YOU CAN BARBECUE. IT IS A GO FAST PONTOON BOLT — PONTOON BOAT. IT’S 50, 60 MILES-AN-HOUR. WOULD THIS BE THE TYPE OF BOAT I COULD TAKE A DATE ON? ABSOLUTELY. YOU HAVE YOUR LED LIGHTS SHINING DOWN ON THE WATER. YOU HAVE A STEREO SYSTEM. I HAVE DECK SPACE FOR ME? AND THEY CAN’T SEE YOU BECAUSE OF THE ALUMINUM SIDING RIGHT THERE. THANK YOU, SIR. CAN YOU GIVE ME A PRICE? DISCOUNTED TO 87,000. AND WE’RE QUITE NEGOTIABLE AT THE SHOW. WE CAN GO DOWN EVEN FURTHER THAN THAT. NOT BAD. TO THOSE PEOPLE THAT SAY BOATS ARE NOTHING JUST PITS FOR MONEY, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE FUN, AFTER A WHILE PEOPLE GET TIRED. BOAT STANDS FOR BEST OF ALL TIMES. AND THE VERY VERY BEST DAYS OF A BOATER’S LIFE IS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. SO WE WANT PEOPLE OUT ON THE WATER. AWESOME. THANKS, THE L.A. BOAT SHOW IS GOING ON. YOU GUYS ROCK. THANK YOU FOR THIS BOAT. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. DON’T FORGET MY MILLION DOLLARS YACHT. REMEMBER TO FIND OUT MORE, JUST GO TO KCAL9.COM. AS SEEN ON TV.
