Re: What's wrong with this listing?

I can't see when it was listed, but I often see new listing with little info until they are able to update.

Re: What's wrong with this listing?

What?? It's got motors.

This is why so many people don't trust Yacht Brokers. If they can't get the listing right, what else are they clueless about?

did you notice it says "twin gas"....

Re: What's wrong with this listing?

Not only gas, but 2 different size engines also.
Broker might be in the USA, bur I din't think the boat is. Talking about tax paid, bet the price is supposed to e Euro's ???

That sure looks like a Leopard 45 and not a 43 to me.

Re: What's wrong with this listing?

Re: What's wrong with this listing?

I noticed a lot of those "no details" ads on Yachtworld lately.

Are these real ones for sale, or are they being floated out there to pretend that there is activity?

Re: What's wrong with this listing?

Looks like a fishing exercise to get contacts for people who are looking for specific boats.
I inquired about a boat like this once, no details even when I chased them up and received the “oh really”.
It’s probably harmless but it is annoying being messed about when you are making serious inquires about buying a boat.
