Blue Friday - The Boater's Alternative to Black Friday

CLEARWATER, FL (November 25, 2019) – November 29th is notoriously known as the biggest shopping day of the year. In 2015, SpinSheet Publishing Company introduced a new idea called Blue Friday. Even if you plan to spend part of the day shopping, MarineMax, SpinSheet and PropTalk Magazine encourage you to get outside and enjoy the water for a part of your day in celebration of Blue Friday.

“In addition to great deals on new-to-you boats and exclusive Winter Savings for BLACK Friday, we invite you to join in on a new tradition called BLUE Friday,” explains MarineMax Director of Marketing, Abbey Heimensen. “On November 29, skip the lines and spend time connecting with friends and family outside. If the weather is beautiful, get out on-the-water for your favorite boating activity. If the weather is frightful, go for a walk by the water and reflect on what you are thankful for this year.” 

Spend time with your friends, family, and coworkers with the boater’s alternative to Black Friday. Celebrate Blue Friday instead and get outside to enjoy what you love about the boating lifestyle. Remember to use good sense when boating in colder climates – file a float plan, wear PFD’s, and use wet or dry suits if necessary. If outdoor activities are limited, create a fun event near the water instead. Here are a few ideas to get in the boating holiday spirit: 

Attend brunch at a local yacht or boating club using TripAdvisor
Decorate marine-themed ornaments
Bake cookies in the shape of anchors, fish, and seashells anchors, fish, and seashells
Find a MarineMax holiday activity or event near you
Catch up on your favorite “From The Helm” episodes
Plan an exotic vacation to the British Virgin Islands
