I watched Sailboatlistings.com for about a year. Then I started trying to make contact via email
. I sent out 15 to 20 emails and only got a couple of responses. Many times the listing was removed after I sent out the email
. I ended up not visiting any boats based on Sailboatlistings.com.
I ended up targeting two brokers that listed on YactWorld. The prices were not different than Sailboatlistings.com. Plus, I was able to board eight boats at each brokers site. I spent one day at one broker and another day at another broker. With Sailboatllistings.com, I would have had to set up a viewing with each boat individually. I would have been lucky to have two viewings in one day.
Brokers worked better for me. I liked working with them quite a bit. To me, they earned their fee.
