selltheboat.co.uk provides boat owners with a bespoke, personalized website to showcase their vessel to potential purchasers.
selltheboat.co.uk will produce a unique, high quality website with a custom domain name for a simple fixed fee. Our websites offer full photo and video galleries and the ability to include detailed inventories and descriptions. We’ll input make and model specifications where possible and actively work with sellers to highlight specific details to potential purchasers – after all, an owner knows his boat far better than anyone else.
Our websites are run on the established WordPress platform and are inherently optimized for search engine optimization helping sellers to find your listing. All websites are free to run until no longer required with no extension fees.
Why use us?
Boat listing marketplaces tend to be filled with poorly presented and often outdated listings leaving potential buyers frustrated. Listings are often duplicated across various sites meaning time is often wasted chasing a boat no longer on the market. Furthermore free listing options tend to only offer very limited photo and text opportunities making if difficult to present a vessel adequately.
Many buyers know what type of boat they would like and often search for a specific make or model. A private website allows sellers to showcase their boat with a high level of detail whilst avoiding often significant brokerage commissions.
Having a dedicated website allows sellers to promote their vessel in a variety of ways including owners forums & social media whilst highlighting notable features and characteristics perhaps unknown to a potential purchaser. Communication between buyer and seller is direct saving both time and money.
Who are we?
selltheboat.co.uk was created for sailors by sailors. As many boat owners undoubtedly do we spend hours ‘browsing’ the next possible boat online…
It seemed strange that so many boats are poorly advertised considering the time, money and effort most owners spend maintaining and using them – there had to be a better way for people wishing to do a private sale.
