Default Best Time to Purcahse a New Kayak

In the market for a new kayak, someone mentioned there will be better deals if you have the patience to wait till end of August and month of September when the 2015 models come out. He mentioned dealers need to make room for the 2015 and reduce prices on remaining 2014's. Only issue you may be limited to selection of 2014's.

Is there a substantial savings by delaying purchasing a kayak? Or just purchase the kayak you want knowing your model might not be no longer available if you wait to save a few bucks?

Not sure about new models, but I just scoured Craigslist for about 2 months before I found a deal I was willing to pull the trigger on. You'll find the right one soon enough.

Used during the fall/winter is generally the best way/time to get the most bang for your buck. People aren't using them and want the yak outta the way so they sell it for cheap.

If you are missing out on fishing, then now is the best time.

This ultimately!!! But if your not in a hurry, have the money you plan to spend on ready and check stores, craigslists and other outlets constantly if you want to get a great deal.

I did this and was willing to pay up to $500 for a good used yak. Ended up finding a brand new Heritage angler 14ft at academy for $299 on clearance this past February! 2 months later, they had the 2015 models in back at $599. Same exact boat, lol.

Patience is key though. I looked for over 3 months and sent many messages to sellers on CL before I stumbled over this deal. Luckily for me, most of the CL listed boats were already sold or else I may never have gotten this deal.
