Yachtworld Popups

Is it just me or are other people having problems using Yachtworld? I do a search for boats and start viewing a boat and I get a popup that I have won a Google prise. You try to close the popup and it redirects you to another web site and you can't get back to where you were. So I open another Yachtworld page and the same thing happens again. At this rate Yachtworld is completely unusable to me. Is this juat a problem when using an ipad?

It is happening to me as well. I'm using an iPad. Don't know if it is happening on a computer. It is most annoying and makes the yachtworld site impossible to use.

I've not had that happen to me on my computer, I don't use a smart phone, so it must be a phone thing

I sent Yachtworld a message through their customer contact. Have not heard anything back, but maybe if more people complain they will address the problem.

Yachtworld is not there for your pleasure.
It’s there to make money.
If you want something free go elsewhere.

No problem with popups on my computers but I am having trouble with slow loading of photos. I have a fast internet connection so I'm not thinking that is the issue.

.... Huh?


Anyway, I've all but given up on looking at boats on there for that same reason. It would be different if you could exit the ad or hit back, but I can't. I have to close it out and re-search, frustrating!

Not quite correct. Dealers pay a lot of money each month to place boats on YW for easy access to the public.

While I do get pleasure looking at boats on Yachtworld, I have actually bought several boats from listings I found on Yachtworld. The whole purpose of Yachtworld is to allow buyers to find a boat listed by a seller. If Yachtworld is unusable due to the ads popping up, then it hurts the seller who paid to list the boat since I can't see their listing. To tell us to go somewhere else for pleasure does not compute... I wonder if the sellers that are paying for buyers to see their listings know that the buyers are unable to view the listing?

I am using a windows based computer, fairly quick computer, but not so fast internet here. After looking at ten or so photos it freezes pretty much everything on my computer. I'm having the same problem with other sites too, Boats.com..

I am trying to by a boat. And I continually tell my / the broker they should find another place to advertise. There is opportunity for a good alternative site. As broker trying to sell boats I wouldnít utilize YW if I didnít have to.

But you do have to. As to all these issues being reported, I don't know. The pop up is not a Yachtworld problem as many of us don't have it. It appears confined to Apple products and browsers.

Most brokers also have their own sites but YW is the closest thing boat brokers have to MLS for Realtors.
