Where else can one advertise.......

........a RIB "For Sale".

I'm using Boats & Outboards along with Apollo Duck, Boat Mart, Marine Europe all of which are free to advertise in/on.

Where else would you recommend on the www. Of course I'm advertising in the local chandlers, yachtclub etc but need to step up my promotional activites before the end of this season in order to off load MeMe and another Zodiac I have sat on the drive.

HELP................

may be its not the place you are advertising it the price

it very close to the price of new boats with smaller engines and to the first
time buyer a new boat wins hands down

and the rib you have is a med type boat with a bench seat not jockey
which most people want

try asking a local dealer to sell it for you mike in herne bay let the local boat yard have the boat on display they asked 500 of the price it sold in two weeks
its worth ago

I'd tend to agree with Dan. You are advertising it in all the right places but its not selling. There must be a reason for that and its usually price or condition. I'm sure the condition is OK but mebbe you need to think about price?

One place people often forget is www.adtrader.co.uk - the website of the freeads yellow paper - great marine section and great all round for finding a bargain - and it's FREE!
