Boat Seller Network

After putting the "Queen Neptune" my 82' Mainship on Boat Trader as a sale by owner, I received multiple calls from the above company. After searching the net for reviews and finding some, but to me, little. What experience and/or information do the collective brain trust have of this site. Personally I'm not at all inclined to pursue this Avenue

Thanks, Chris

I had 2 boats for sale on Boat Trader and also got calls from them saying they had buyers. Did not follow up as it didn't feel right.

Sounds like a paralel sceme (scam) similar to cars & RVs.
I've posted ads for cars snd RV... on Craigslist and gotten calls from "Once Driven" Same line they have buyers in my area. That was pure BS...
They want an upfront fee to advertise it.
Looked them up and indeed did find RV listings. I then went to Google and searched for that yr mfg & model. Lots of hits but NONE from Once Driven.

I'm sure that once you respond to them regarding their 'buyer' they will immediately request that you complete a listing (as per their policy, I'm sure).

If you want to get your boat sold contact Barry at Crown International. He sold our boat in three months after another broker had the listing for a year.
I do not work for them or am I associated with them. I do not get a finders fee. I just wanted my boat sold and Barry did it. He closed the sale from his hospital bed after a surgery. This guy is committed to making the sale.

You don't get much junk mail in USPS boxes.
