Trying to find that balance between work and personal life can be a challenge. With endless appointments and demands, it just does not seem like there is enough time to connect with family and friends. Sound familiar?

While the battle for time may continue and the stress seems hard to avoid, there are some ways you can win the work/life balance battle. Dedicate some time to activities you enjoy. Think about the things you have always wanted to learn or that hobby you have thought about for years but never acted on. Carve out time and make it happen!

One activity that is sure to bring you an overwhelming sense of relaxation is boating, and America has hundreds of miles of beautiful coastline just waiting to be discovered by you. It’s hard not to relax when you’re on a boat. Out on the water, the only distractions you have are the ones you make. Just imagine the open water, fresh air, and the warmth of the sun. Boating provides a sense of freedom and adventure that you can’t find anywhere else!

The Most Boats in Georgia Under One Roof

From paddleboards and pontoons to luxury yachts, powerboats, and fishing vessels, the newest models are making their debut at the lowest prices. Here’s a sneak peek at this year’s latest products:

New: Salute to Service Limited Edition Centurion Boats (Ri237 and Ri257 towboats) are available in three 2019 designs to honor police, fire and military service men and women. From each boat sold, $2,500 will be donated to a charity assisting those in that line of service.

New: Chaparral 297 SSX Surf provides enough space (29 ft.) for the entire crew to make the most of wake surfing. Equipped with advanced technology, including a touchscreen “Glass Dash” and hydraulically operated Malibu Surf Gate™, this boat transforms watersport wakes into the most surfable and customizable waves possible.

New: Premier Pontoons 310 Accolade is 31-ft. long and 10-ft. wide, but handles like a 22-ft. sporting boat for maximum amenities and fun. The boat also has a full bar with sink, refrigerator, real wood tables and barstools to kick back on the water.
