Boatpoint Australia: A Probem . . .


I want to share a bad experience i got in Australia when trying to sell my boat ( )

"Everybody" recommended me the website boatpoint (Used Boats - New Boats - Search New & Used Boats For Sale - BoatPoint Australia ) as the major classified ad website for sailbot in australia. The price for placing an ad was quite expensive (170$) but the web site looked really pro, and that was the biggest concentration of sailboat for sale in australia i found on the web.
So I subscribe.
3 weeks ago.
My bank acount know it for sure.

But not their web site.

My ad is pending release for now 3 weeks and I didn't get any answer from this company to my numerus mails.

Doe anyone get the same type of problem with this company before?

I have sold a few through boat point and never had this problem. In my experience the CS team are really excellent, give them a call

Good luck

I have never listed with boat point, but often browse their site looking (and dreaming). For what it is worth, I find yacht hub a better site, from a buyer's point of view anyway.
