Well maybe not really ugly boats, but we do like to buy boats that need a little bit of fixing up. One of the things that we have had success with over the years is buying boats that just need a little makeover or have some minor damage and maybe small mechanical fixes. Others have seen our success with our boat projects so they often ask about it. We get a lot of compliments on all the boat projects. Some people come up to us and say oh you are the people with the nice boat I have heard about. The fun thing is that if they saw the boat when we bought it, they maybe wouldn’t have thought it was ugly but it certainly wouldn’t have drawn compliments or turned any heads.
Friends and acquaintance reach out to me for advice. I laugh because I am not sure why they ask, I swear they never listen and they aren’t willing to “buy the ugly boat”. Just like house flipping you are suppose to buy the ugliest on the block and you also don’t want to over improve the area or in a boat’s case it’s age. I ask all the questions of what are your goals with buying this boat, what do you plan to do with the boat to give them my honest opinion and experience. It never fails, I don’t think any of them listen because after they buy the boat they are excited and they often text me pictures and tell me what they want to do with the boat. I then still have yet to learn my lesson and tell them what is going to give you a good return on your investment and what not to expect a return on. We love boats, and our family loves boating and there is something so wonderful about bringing a boat back to life and watching the clients fall in love with their boat all over again. I do think that I am going to start charging for my boat buying advice. When someone asks me, I really put a lot of time and effort into the conversations. I can’t say that I have had success with giving anyone advice because they never listen and they always buy the boat that they had in mind before they asked for my advice and then they go and do the things that I warned them they wouldn’t get a good return on investment on and when they go to sell and they aren’t able to sell my phone rings and it’s almost always too late.. I have a good friend that does this for fishing boats, we had a good laugh the other day because he runs into the same exact thing.

Did you know UltimateBoatWraps.com offers group discounts? We do! We get calls and emails from around the USA weekly and some days internationally of clients looking to learn more about wrapping their boats. Boat wraps have been our specialty for over the past 14 years. I know the thought of hiring someone from Minnesota to come wrap your boat sounds expensive, but it isn’t as expensive as you may think, there are times with our travel expenses and wrap install pricing we are less than the local installer who isn’t familiar with wrapping boats. It isn’t uncommon for us to wrap a boat and a week later a friend of the client we just wrapped for wants to get their boat done too. By grouping jobs together we can save everyone money. Most of our clients are excited and ready to get their boat wrapped and on the water so we get them on the schedule, if we are able to save them some money it is just a nice bonus. If we have others in the area that have expressed interest we usually reach out to them to let them know we will be in their area if they are ready to get their boat wrapped letting them know if we can schedule at the time we are in their area we can save them some money. If we don’t have anyone in your area on our list to follow up with and time allows we can do some marketing to see if we have others in your area ready to get their boat wrapped. It does work, for example we went from Boca Roton, FL to Marco Island, FL and then up to Tampa, FL on one install trip to wrap 3 boats. It save us time and it saves you money. UltimateBoatWraps might be coming to an area near you, if you are interested in being on our list of locations/clients interested if we have work in the area, let us know. If you in an area that we are coming to soon, contact us today and lets get you on the schedule. We would love to wrap your boat for you.

Thank you all for a wonderful 2018! 2019 is starting out with a bang is is going to be another wonderful year of traveling the world wrapping boats, trucks, semi’s and who knows what else.
