Advertising your boat for sale, is it even worth it?

I'm really surprised that the Mercedes MTI, which is one of the fastest pleasure boats in the world, has not been sold. I had read dozens of Post on OSO about this boat being one of the nicest and fastest. There are only a select few who can afford to buy a boat like this and maybe the poor economy is also affected them.

That's why some use broker's so they don't have to deal with the tire kicker's .
on a side note ;
im sure your going to get another boat
if you trade it in you will take a loss , instead of selling it yourself but it mite work out with the Tax saving's from the trade in .
just a thought

good luck that's one hell of a boat

Yeah, but then you can get a buyer like me and only call if I'm really interested. If the seller sounds shaky, then I stop asking questions and walk. I'm in the middle of purchasing ICEDPPL's Active Thunder from him.

Lube Job, Be careful where you call someone back ----- You could get a $10,000 phone bill if the guy keeps you on the phone long enough .... new scam where they charge $2300 a minute.. Do not call these area codes 809,284 and 876 .... sorry you are having so much trouble with these guys calling about your boat. I think you would have better luck on a local basis rather than trying to peddle it across the country.
