"There is everything from kayaks and mini day sailors to personal watercraft, water sports boats, and all the way up to sport fishers and yachts," said Carrie Waible, spokeswoman for the New York Boat Show. "You can come, shop and compare boats side by side and buy your next boat at a great deal."

Bill Mudgett of Chaparral Boats agrees that this is a great place to buy.

"Everybody here is going to put their best pricing forward," Mudgett said.
