Rock Christmas 2010 with a Malibu Boat

Malibu Boats (@MalibuBoats ) and participating dealers nation-wide are celebrating Christmas 2010 with the Malibu Boat Rockin’ Christmas Event. The Rockin’ Christmas Event is helping individuals invest in their families with the gift of a Malibu boat this holiday season. During this event, which ends December 31, 2010, the Malibu Boats factory in cooperation with their national dealer network is working to pull off a string of once-in-a-lifetime Christmas surprises. They are giving huge factory incentives on Malibu boats as well as throwing in great water sports gifts, 50% off Malibu Boats branded merchandise and offering special financing. This is a Malibu Boats package the entire family will love opening on December 25th. Malibu dealers are even making the gift presentation as memorable as the gift itself by working with families to develop personalized Christmas surprises. Malibu Boats is taking the hassle out of the busiest time of the year with a total family Christmas solution that is a gift of fun, togetherness and years of priceless memories.

Instead of giving traditional individual gifts, Malibu Boats is suggesting that you give the whole family the gift of fun and togetherness in the form of a Malibu boat. When you add up what you spend on mp3 players, gifts of money, phones, computers, trips, video game systems, clothes, gift certificates and other typical gifts that can actually distract the family from one another, Malibu thinks you will see enough for a down payment on a boat. Add a return on investment of quality time that the entire family can enjoy together and a Malibu boat may be priceless. That is where the Malibu Boat Rockin’ Christmas Event comes in.

Malibu Boats along with your local dealer is offering discounts on the boats they have in inventory as well as 2011 custom order boats if purchased during the Rockin’ Christmas Event. Malibu Boats is also providing special financing during the event. But the boat and closeness are not the only gifts Malibu can help you give your family this Christmas.

When you give a Malibu boat during the Rockin’ Christmas Event, your family will receive more to open under the tree. Boating and water sports accessories of your choice, for the whole family, will be included in your Malibu Christmas package. Malibu is also providing each family with a 50% discount on up to $500 worth of new Malibu Boats Gear. The Malibu Boat Rockin’ Christmas Event eliminates the hassle commonly associated with the holiday season by doing all the shopping for you. Malibu has even taken it a step further by easing the planning that goes along with a surprise of this magnitude.

Local Malibu dealers across the country are planning amazing surprises for those families receiving boats as a part of the Rockin’ Christmas Event. You can work with your Malibu dealer to hide the boat and sneak it by your house just before the kids look outside. Or maybe you want to make a bigger production for the gift unwrapping. Your Malibu dealer can unveil the boat during your yearly Christmas get-together. You could even work with your dealer to stage the surprise at the dealership. How ever the presentation of the present goes down, you will have an ally in your local Malibu dealer. The planning for such a huge surprise doesn’t fall entirely on your busy schedule.

Visit your local Malibu Boats dealer to create a Malibu Boat Rockin’ Christmas you and your family will never forget.
