Default Best place to advertise boat......?

Besides this website, where would I get the best results trying to sell my Formula 303?

I was thinking boattrader.com.

Would I benefit waiting until winter/spring or should I advertise now? (if buyers wants it now, I would offer FREE indoor storage for the winter! )

I sold a 271 Formula this summer. Had it listed on OSO, Speedwake, Boattraderonline.com and boats.com. I got the most traffic from Boattrader, but boats.com was a reasonably close second. Boats.com gets bonus points from me because the ultimate purchase came from that site. I'd definatly get started now while there is a little warm weather left.

Good Luck

Honestly Not Sure I've Been Trying For 6 Months No Luck On Either Site So Good Luck It Has To Be Under $40,000 And Then You Might Have A Chance.

Boat Trader gets a lot of exposure.

I think I spend 400-500 to list my boat in various places over the past few months. I listed it on ebay and finally started to get calls and emails. The auction ended without anyone buying but then someone contacted afterwards and picked up the boat this past tuesday.

The only serious calls you will get will be from here, don't waste money.
