Youboat, a part of Motors Gate publishers, has launched Boat on Demand, a hassle-free service that enables clients to find the right used boat for their requirements. It can be termed as a pool of boat buyers searching for a particular kind of boat, be it a motor boat, sailboat or semi-rigid/inflatable.
When clients post their boat buying requirements, all professional sellers on the forum can access the requirement request. Boat on Demand service providers will be able to contact the relevant buyer once they receive a perfect match in terms of brand, model, size and budget.
Grégory Chateau, deputy managing director at Youboat, commented, “Nowadays many providers are giving this service completely free of charge. The best part here is that you can find an ideal boat of your choice faster without bothering to answer the published advertisements.”
Grégory continued, “Boat on Demand caters for the boating professional in rotating their stock of boats. They need to broadcast advertisements to find the prospective contacts. It is the best approach for buying new as well as used boats as per the media distribution packages of advertisements.
“The idea of buying a used boat is all good. You can definitely save a huge amount of money that would have been spent on a brand new product.
“It is obvious that wooden boats do not appreciate in value the way houses do – they depreciate every year. So it is a good idea to go for a lightly used boat at a reduced price than to buy a classic wooden boat of a particular pedigree.”
Youboat suggests users should consider buying a used boat rather than a new one for the following reasons:
• Buying a second-hand boat costs less than a new boat
• Opportunity to get a bigger boat for more money
• The insurance will be cheaper for a used boat
• No need to spend more after purchase as generally, it comes fully-equipped
There are certain factors that have to be taken into account when buying a used boat. The buyer may have to invest one afternoon exploring the facts regarding the matter, as well as doing a little homework before negotiating with the seller to determine the asking price. Apart from the price the other significant factors are the condition of the boat, the brand along with other special features.
The company warns users not to get confused or frustrated if they become tired of searching for a good second-hand boat within their budget; Youboat encourages users to identify their buying criteria and merely send the details to them. The company is there to assist in buying a used second-hand boat of a user’s choice.
Youboat is the ideal classified boat ads support for renting and selling several varieties of used boat, such as motorboats, sailing boats, rib/inflatable boats and small boats.
Youboat recommends that its users and members seek the help of a professional to gauge the actual condition of any used boat they may be interested in.
