Yachtworld Advanced Search Function

I don't see the advanced search function on Yachtworld. Did they move it or delete? How do I waste hours on the computer without this??

Probably just some silly issue on an update or something but I don't see it either. Main thing I use it for is location, but normally just use the regular function, so don't even know how long it's been missing.

Where oh where did you go?

Yes, I only use the advanced search. The link does work but how did you find it?

You may have never found it without the advanced search...

Well I just bookmarked that one. i am guessing that I must have single handedly taken down their servers with my incessant boat searches. I was completely lost without that function. Thank you for the link!!!!

I noticed a week or so ago, when I opened to the Yachtworld site, I got the generic search engine. When I clicked on that I got some filters but they are way "clunky" compared to advanced search. For example, searching for a trawler in the PNW, wanting Washington Oregon or BC I could only access one at a time. Don't know why "advanced search" went away.

It looks like they are trying to make all the advance filters available all the time. Problem that I run into is that some of the filters now won't let you select multiple choices (ie can only search one State at a time). I tried using ctrl-click (for multi-choice) but in only holds the last thing clicked

Also the new choices do not include regions (multiple states) in the filters.

Glad to have the link to get around their new face and back to my old familiar advanced search.

Yeah, so the worst web site on the planet gets worse. These folks are just grotesquely incompetent. For years now, using this site on an iPad has been next to impossible. If you dare touch the screen on a boat image, the image area goes white. Itís just incredible. Have these idiots never heard of an iPad? Could they test their ancient, pathetic code on an iPad? Of course not.

The astonishing part is how much money is at stake here. The Boat Group and the brokers share a marketplace of billions, yet us poor folks who spend the cash get treated like crap.

I believe that this POS has caused me to give up on several potential transactions. But whatever. Clearly they donít give a ratís behind.

Yeah, it wasn't broke, so they decided to fix it. And as usually happens when some boob decides to do that, they made it much, MUCH worse!

The ability to look at 50 boats per page has also disappeared. It seems to be about getting you to display as many pages as possible, each with different advertisements. More clicks more revenue... Pretty sad as it was the go to site.

Because of the problems noted above - I have been using the Yachtworld UK advanced search option.

Just sent them a rude message assessing the likelihood that I will be using their service in the future.

Slick solution, especially as the Pound Sterling declines toward parity. Thank you Brexiteers!
