Default Why is every POS boat on EBAY an "offshore race boat"

How come every POS boat I find on Ebay is always described as some kind of "offshore style" or Cigarette or Scarab boat. I found this on ebay:

This is the part that drives me crazy "SHE IS A SUNBIRD EUROSPORT OFFSHORE RACE BOAT SHE IS A VERY FAMOUS NICE HULL."

Can say that again!!! What I hate, to get people to look at their POS people add not, Donzi, Cigarette or Fountain to the title. If I wanted to look at POS boats I would search offshore racer wanna be's!!!! They might get us to look, but by doing so for me at least they ticked me off!!!!
