This goes the other way too. When I was looking to buy, The amount of people I had contacted by email through B&O only to get no response or a very negative one was shocking. After reading this thread I can see why.

I think B&O is a fantastic service , there are not many places where you can sell with a photo for nothing , or just a tenner if its a more expensive boat .
I have bought and sold a few boats on there with no problems at all .
Thanks B&O

Agree with all of that

Although the huge amount of bogus/scam outboard ads is starting to pee me of now - that problem needs to be addressed!

I've bought through Boatsandoutboards and had a very positive experience.

Never tried selling through them.

Used JBT to sell my 5.4 Searider and was very simple and straightforward - although I did have to pay a Brokerage fee.

Hi folks,

As stated on here before, if there are any issues with boatsandoutboards.co.uk I would be grateful if you would let me know. We aim to offer a top class service and if for some reason this does not happen then I need to know about it!

I should add that BoatsandOutboards is the UK's most popular boat sales site and therefor the best place to be putting a boat for sale, last month the site attracted over 1/2 million visitors!

my email for any feedback good or bad is stephen@boatsandoutboards.co.uk

Thanks

Stephen

I've sold a couple of boats through B&O no problem, also had a couple that have not sold, with hinds sight probabally because I over priced them.

Bought an RS 700 (sailing dinghy) on their recently, probabally the easiest transaction I have ever done.

The fact that there are more sellers on the market than buyers does not necassarily mean B&O are to blame. Savy buyers are looking for good deals, if your not prepared to discount or negotiate and they have any sense they will move onto somone who will.

Like any second hand market place their are always going to be time wasters (buyers and sellers) but i'd rather get 5 callers who dont buy followed by one that does than the phone not ring at all.

Nice one Stephen

I am very happy that the Channel Islands are now a card carrying member of the B&O universe, looking forward to retrying a brokerage package asap.
