Big Thunder Marine Introduces Virtual Boat Show with 360-Degree Viewing

December 2020 News

Big Thunder Marine has unveiled a new way for customers to shop for boats, designed to help them navigate through models of interest, allowing eyes to see through consoles, under seat storage or even explore engine compartments. “At Big Thunder, we pride ourselves on leading the industry with new and innovative ideas. We are proud to introduce our 2021 Virtual Boat Show!” said Jeremy Anderson, General Manager, Big Thunder Marine. “We recognized that customers may still want that boat show experience but without traveling to a boat show during a pandemic. This technology allows full 360-degree viewing of each boat by brand.” Brought to life through the Matterport 3D technology, the Virtual Boat Show is now live.

With the cancellation of many live boat show events, Big Thunder is investing in their digital presence and technology — looking at how this worked in the real estate industry inspired the idea to present boats in 360𝆩 with their many standard and optional features. Whether on a desktop, table or phone, customers can now explore the boat model of their choice and click on the call-outs to see specifications, additional photos and videos or promotions.

Visit for the true virtual boat show experience. If visiting the Lake of Ozarks, see the vast showrooms at the Speed & Luxury Showroom, where Big Thunder carries Chris Craft, Monterey, and Powerboats by Fountain, Donzi, and Statement. Around the corner, the Family Boating Center houses MasterCraft, Manitou, Crest and JC Tritoons plus the Wake Effects Pro Shop.
