Big Thunder Marine has unveiled a new way to shop for boats. Designed to help boaters navigate through models of interest, the 2021 Virtual Boat Show's immersive technology allows customers to see through consoles, peek 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.

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.
