Your guide to buying and selling used boats since 1983. For over 40 years BoatsFSBO has been serving the new and used boat markets with its "For Sale By Owner", commission free sales strategy. In order to successfully carry out this mission, it became necessary BoatsFSBO would have to build a large network of boat sellers and boat buyers.
In the eighties and until 1991, the Internet was non-existent. BoatsFSBO carried out its mission largely by attending boat shows with reams and reams of paper with boat listings. The success of this method is what allowed us to continue on with the business and continue to tailor it to people looking to sell a boat and buy a boat.And Then Came The Internet!
The nineties brought about more Internet popularity as connections and computers evolved and the benefits to us were clear. The boat broker lost their main advantage, their exclusive network of buyers and sellers. Now the internet offered an easy to browse marketplace, where no commission based middle man was required. This made the "Boats For Sale By Owner" that much more of viable strategy for everyone. By establishing a web presence we can offer boat buyers and sellers an efficient channel to post and view boats for sale.
Seems unbelievable in current times but, back in the early '90's, bandwidth and technology became more readily available, we were able to offer more and more features. Currently, we allow boat sellers to post large, detailed images and list an infinite amount of textual detail about their boat. We have now recently redesigned our website to display perfectly mobile devices! We've been here since the beginning so, as technology changes, we must evolve too!
We now attract hundreds of thousands of people through our custom data feeds, websites, partnered boating sites, facebook marketplace and BoatBlast promotions.Technology and Design
