If you are going to spend a lot of time on your Monterey Boat during the holidays, or even enter it into a boat parade, you probably could use some tips on how to decorate it.
Of course, if you don't have a Monterey Boat, the first tip is to visit one of our U.S. dealers
or international dealers
While we think Monterey Boats
are a pretty good decoration in themselves, we do like to provide our owners with all the help they can get.
Just like anything else, you need a plan for what you want to do. If you want to put up a tree, you need to make sure it's the right size and doesn't interfere with the captain's ability to pilot the boat. You also need to make sure it doesn't hinder movement on the boat. If you are in a boat parade, you need to design your decorations so they are visible to people on the shore.
You need to make sure any lights or decorations you buy are rated for outdoor use. For battery-operated lights, you need to have a good supply of batteries. Check each string of lights before you hang them. For a boat parade, if you have a tree or Santa on a sleigh, you want to make sure they can be seen from the both sides of the boat.
Rope lights are the best ones to use, because they are easier to string and won't snag as much. Bright or white lights are best so they can be seen and also help people watching a parade see the rest of your decorations.
Don't use but two or three colors. Multi colors are pretty up close, but at a distance they will just be a blur. Try to string the lights so they outline the shape of your boat and your decorating scheme also will be easier for people viewing the parade to see.
We hope this helps with the enjoyment of your Monterey Boat in one of the best seasons of the year. If you need help choosing a Monterey Boat that you think will look great in a parade, just check out our models at Monterey Boats
