Great exposure and far easier that other sites to advertise
One of the best sites to advertise you yacht, others are so clunky and obviously put together by script writers no a by people who know how to present a yacht for sale
Fast responses from interested buyers
Easy to create listing, and a very widely used platform leading to quickly identifying potential buyers and a satisfactory sale.
It did the job and did it well
It did the job and did it well under quite challenging conditions. It found the few people who might be interested, and the one who would want to buy it.
Excellent and easy to use
Very easy site to upload and document description of boat. We had the option of responding to genuine interest and ignoring ridiculous requests.
Sold Quintrex Freedom Sport with great results
Did not get about half the messages to my email.
Setting up pictures was difficult. I could not reorder the sequence.
Apart from this everything else was terrific and I would use it again.
Easy to set up add and manage. good coverage had inquiries from 4 states, sold interstate. Able to see interest and views in add. One cost till sold. Looks expensive but when you get results you are thankful. Able to pores and re activate. Up to date messages and contact on phone
Boat sold much faster than I expected
I've been using this site for many years - to both buy and sell. I trust the site and consider it to be the best value for money available. I will keep using it and also recommend it to family, friends and colleagues.
Good to buy , Too expensive to sell
Ok place to buy a boat as interface is very user friendly.
but $90 -$200 just to sell is just highway robbery for an internet ad.
Especially when comparable websites only charge $30 and gumtree is free.
good for interstate buying
Found Boatsales.com.au a good platform when it comes to interstate deals. I've found in the past with other platforms you get a lot of timewasters and people who aren't serious, don't fret as this is a rariety on boatsales.com.au - everyone on the site means business and doesn't play games wasting your time and demanding the world.
Bought and sold, no hassles both times.
Allowed me to have photos and full description of boat available for prospective buyers. I referred people who had seen a much smaller ad in a newspaper to this ad.
All the serious offers, and ultimately the buyer, were the result of advertising on Boat Sales. Was worth the price of the ad.
Did advertise on other platforms for free, and you get what you pay for!
Using your network gets results! I have tried using other networks & its a waste of time. This goes for carsales, motor bikes etc. I like the idea that items under a certain price are for free
Hated having to log in from my email notifications.
Buyer should be encouraged more to contact via mobile. Only knew I had messages when I viewed my emails.
Was not able to show clearly that there were 2 skis for sale on the listing as the site only allows one ID to be entered.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
Sold but not a great service or cost
Was not happy with the cost of the Ad and won't be using this service again. $90 odd dollars for a page is too much. considering the amount of Advertising that is being sold on the site. Will use other tools moving forward.
Broker had my boat for almost a year, I sold it on boat sales in 10 days.
Boat Sales has a huge audience, a broker wanted 5% to sell my boat and all he did is what I ended up doing advertising it on Boat Sales in the end I sold it because i knew everything about the boat and was able to answer any questions. So I was able to take his commission off the price which made it $50k and then dropped to $48k but I had to repair a couple of faults hence $46,250, I'm happy and the buyers happy.
only one dodgy enquiry and 2 genuine enquiries . the 2 genuine lookers both thought unit was top quality. the buyer was extremely happy
thank you my boat drew a lot of interest as was priced right and sold as expected, loved pay protect would definitely use again overall easy and straight forward to use
Excellent site to sell your boat
The site was easy to follow and produced a professional looking ad. Communication processes within the site worked perfectly. Great site to sell, Thank you
A good experience
We were happy with the whole process. We only had a couple of dodgy inquiries and lots of genuine ones. The time frame was good and the price we received was satisfactory.
Great Site to Sell
I had the boat advertised in another site and git 1 reply in 3 months, then I advertised here and had 5 interested buyers immediately. I was able to sell the boat after approx 2-3 weeks on this site. Great site, more exposure to prospective buyers.
Questions & Answers
Besides the cost of the add, do you take a cut of the sale price? Selling for under $7500?
No. Buyer paid the asking price.
I have sailing boat sculptures for sale may I place these on your site?
Hi Rainier, Thanks for your question.
For selling boat sculptures, it'll be best to advertise on quicksales.com.au.
Part of the carsales network, Quicksales is a general classifieds website and is 100% free to sell.
I hope this helps.
