Luke, you didn't mention boats and outboards? Theres so many scams there it might not be worth it any more but it used to rank well on Google. If I was buying I'd look on apollo duck because I think it represents a buyer who knows a little bit more about boats and seems to be less scammy. You can't beat ebay and gumtree for exposure / coverage though. People moan about fees, but twenty years ago you'd have paid more for a two inch advert at the back of a magazine read by a tiny number of people months after you sent it in. Obviously if there's a Fletchers owners group or even boatmad might be worth a try...

Where to sell a boat

I advertised my RIB for sale on Apollo Duck in early July I had circa. 6000 views only one phone call which led to a viewing and a sale all completed in approx 4 weeks.

Tried eBay, gumtree, boats and outboards, several groups on Facebook, even the local post office!! Nothing.

Ended up selling it on a internal police database! Got a good price and sold it without any hassle!
