Private mode did not change the results for me. I didnít get two pages in before they started. I give up. Itís just insane that they donít give a damn.

Where else can you browse boats? Boat Trader is just as bad. I looked at both sites on a brand new Galaxy tablet, so I know there was no cookies or viruses, and as soon as I looked at a boat... Bam! Pop up. Had to exit out and said screw it.

For those who don't know, this is what pops up. Not in a new tab, but completely takes over the tab you have open. Clicking back won't help, you have to close out and restart.

Finally saw it on an iPhone but haven't seen it yet on anything we use.

Update of chrome fixed it for me. Blocks the redirect now, and informs you.

Are you using Adblock? Another thought, Pilou (who was on TF until anti French sentiments upset her), put me onto Spybot(free version). I was amazed the cookies and crap it found and removed,especially as I already use another well known anti virus system. Guess it depends which end the issue is.

And it seems I've spoken too soon. Some are still getting through. Sigh.

Adblock on iPad has miserable reviews. Frankly, I donít trust third party solutions as many of them end up being more invasive than the issue you are trying to correct. The problem is with YachtWorld and tomorrow I am going to call Boats Group until I get a human on the phone who can listen. The site is now totally useless on my iPad which is what I use 95% of the time.

I just had a long chat with the folks at Boats Group, owners of the site. I have provided them with info and lots of screen shots. Maybe, just maybe, someone will finally take a look at this.

I canít believe it, but I just looked at a bunch of boats and photos with no issues. I did hear back from them yesterday and they said their developers were all over it. Perhaps I was able to get their attention. Time will tell. Enjoying it while it lasts.

You may be right. I turned off my content blocker and just looked at about 20 boats and photos without a problem. Hope they do indeed have it fixed.

As an FYI to moderators, Chrome is suddenly blocking multiple pop-ups and redirects here on TF. New as of this morning.
