Default Help, Where's the best place to sell boat???

I was wondering if anyone has any good info on where to place the best ad for boat for sale, Boattrader, OSO, Yacht trader, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 32 Fever must go NOW.
Thanks for you help.

Mike

When I'm shopping, I use Boatrader. It is the most user friendly and easily searchable site. I search tons of others too but Boatrader is the best and it gets tons of traffic.

Mike, I had no responses from OSO on the boat itself. Tons from BoatTrader Online. I would at least go the $55 option to post a picture in the headlines and in the ad vs the cheaper $5 text only ad. I don't even look at ads without any pictures. But thats just me. You boats is a smokin outfit. I see alot of boats that are way unrealisticly priced: same yr, more hrs, same price, but only 502's. I don't think you will have a problem getting a buyer. To bad we were only a couple $$ apart. We're going to OK saturday to look at one that looks promising. Good Luck with your sell.

I posted here and on ebay. I then called my mechanic and told him that I was trading it and he found me a buyer (who lives about 10 houses away from my shore place). Go figure.

I believe anywhere on the internet is a good place to start. When looking to buy a boat this fall I looked everywhere. Just used yahoo, typed in manufacturer of boat I was looking for and the words for sale and I got 100's of options. I was linked to offshoreonly and many other places. The most frequent links were back to boattraderonline, and iboats.com. I found mine at boattraderonline.com
