Where are you? Price? Your ads are pointless.

Yes they were pointless...until your last post there was no contact info, and no info as to where you were. You're only 50 miles from me. Now I know.

It would still be a good idea to put up some proper pictures. In other words, load them onto photobucket then link the images with that mountain icon in the reply menu. That way I don't have to find a magnifying glass and hold it up to the computer screen to see what you are advertising.

Secondly, while a serious buyer might call for pricing, IMO, a serious seller will post up his prices with the ad. When sellers say "call for pricing" it suggests that they have no firm price in mind, but will try to get whatever they possibly can out of someone. I'm sure alot of potential buyers with the funds ready to go are simply turned off by the "call for pricing" schtick. Just my opinion as a sales professional, for what it's worth.

really guys?

We are one of the largest distributors of Mercury Pro Ribs in Canada, and apparently if you are correct, all the people with money are afraid to call and ask for pricing?? really? funny usually when people call for pricing (and the main reason we ask them to) is not to "get as much money for them as we can" but to ascertain what their needs are ie: what configuration as in seating/console/accessories, power options (please note that we do offer more than one option for each boat such as this one can have a Verado or Optimax engine (that is 2 stroke or 4 stroke) and multiple sizes of engines based on the customers needs. ie: for diving/rescue/military/patrol/commercial/pleasure also note we do sell a great number of these units to commercial customers and they get a different pricing schedule also if people want to lease one of the units or just the power, they get different pricing. and so on.......

as well as whether they need a trailer or not, whether or not they want electronics on board as part of the package. some people want hydraulic steering/some want cable. etc.

but if you guys really honestly believe that people wont look into our boats unless we have exact pricing and jumbo pics on here..................................well you will have it by the weekend for the 2 boats I have on here.

pss: the orange dr620 with 150optimax is sold now with trailer and full northstar electronics as well as mercury vesselview computer engine management systems and ez loader trailer. was sold to a customer that saw the initial ad on here when he googled the boat.

which one of you guys is seriously interested in this boat? are you ready to purchase now? just reply to this or email me and I can send you all the specs sheets on any of our boats we have in stock as well as full base pricing on any of them. or if you want I can post all of our pricing on line here so you can compare...................let me know thanks

thanks

I really would love any other ideas/criticism/suggestions as to how to market these boats and how to improve the way we are advertising them. Is there any other information that someone looking for a rib needs to know or wants to know for comparison or interest?

What can you tell us about the construction of the Mercury Ribs? Are both fiberglass & aluminum hulls available? How are the fiberglass hulls formed? How are the fittings such as seats, consoles & arches anchored into the hull? What type of fabric & what fabric weight/thickness is used for the tubes? What tube diameters are used on the various lengths of RIBs? There are a few high-end RIB manufacturers based on the West Coast, so info such as this is important to analytical potential buyers who are considering a RIB purchase (as well as base price ranges).

While I'm not currently looking for a new inflatable (since I purchased a new one 2 summers ago), the whole starting point for me was scouring the internet. The more info on a potential model I was able to obtain over the net, the more likely it was to be included on the short list of about 6-7 dealers that I phoned. Based on the info from the internet & phone calls, I had narrowed things down to 6 models from about 4 different manufacturers. From that point, I made appointments to see the 4 dealers/manufacturers of these boats & flew out to Vancouver to view & sea trial those different models. That trip involved stops in Langley, Delta, Sidney, Parksville and, yes, Tofino (though Tofino was just for the fun of it while I was out there). All that effort on my part was for a mere $10,000 purchase (on a foldable inflatable hull), but I wanted to be certain that I got it right (and I did).

The point of my story is that the more info about a given boat that is readily available, the greater the possibility of that boat going onto a potential buyers short list. I would guess that if a potential private purchaser is ready to lay out there own money on a fully rigged RIB (easily 5 - 20 x the amount that I spent for my bare SIB hull) they would want to be as informed as possible before they even start making phone calls. If the potential buyer is a bureaucrat in some government Dept., the level diligence prior to spending our tax dollars may vary.
