Question How Can I Market My Boat In Florida

I know there are people who will need good, undamaged boats in FL. How can I tap this market with my boat? Classifieds, publications, word of mouth, whatever. I can even deliver it if needed. 32 Billion in damage, some of this has to be boats. Thanks.

If a person has a boat that was that damaged,most likely they are working on getting their life back together, not boating.

Pick a broker you like and give him a central listing.

Well I'm not an ambulance chaser you know. I'm thinking spring when all this clears up. In the mean time I'll keep it here. Touche.

You might also try the Florida editions of the Boat Trader.

Actually there are some people who lost just boats down here, kept at the marinas. A guy I know lost his Fountain, and that's all, but he is strictly a "Beakman".

I don't see too many boats being sold right now in Florida. I mean honestly if you lost your house and possibly your place of employment may also be gone. Who's gonna sit down and look at boats to buy?

Ship it to me, and I will run it each and every weekend with a "For Sale" sign on it 'til it sells. Shooters, Bananna Boat, lake Boca, Deerfield races, Key West.

There has not been a boat sale in Southeast or Southwest Florida since August 13th. I don't expect sales to pick up until November.
