There may be some guys here that don't know what I do. This description is cut directly from my website:



Broker Your Own Boat!!!

Anglers Edge Marine has developed an exciting new age approach to traditional yacht brokerage. Through this service that we like to call “Broker your own boat” you will receive all of the advantages you get from a traditional broker but without having to pay a big commission.

The cost of this service is a one time flat fee of $199.00 paid up front.

What do you get for this small fee?

ADVERTISING: We build an ad for your boat with a full detailed description plus unlimited photos and feature it on all of the following websites until it is sold:

Boattraderonline.com
Yachttraderonline.com
Boats.com
iboats.com
Usedboats.com
Thesaltydog.com
Boat-world.com
Anglersedgemarine.com
Yachtbroker.com
Boatquest.com
Boatclassifieds.us
boatsville.com
123usedboats.com
usedboatfinder.com
boatingbay.com
boatempire.com
boatgloat.com
usedboatsahoy.com
rapidboatsales.com
boatfisher.com
bigfishboats.com
aspenboatingandoutdoors.com

Plus search optimization within 26 websites!!

CONTACT: We give you the option of using your personal contact information in the online ads, using ours, or using both. We are more than happy to talk about your boat to potential buyers. We strongly feel that using both is the best approach. This way the customer can always reach someone on the first attempt.

SHOWING: For now this is the only part that you will have to do yourself unless you are located within a reasonable distance of one of our agents. We firmly believe that nobody knows your boat as well as you. So who better to show it to the buyer? It will also make the buyer feel more comfortable to not be in the presence of a salesman.

FINANCING: We provide in-house financing for any potential buyer that may need it. Offering this service brings more potential buyers to the table. Closing can be arranged within 48 hours of approval. The contract can be sent via Federal Express next day or one of our agents can meet in person with the buyer to close on the loan.

CLOSING: Anglers Edge Marine will provide you with a legal Bill of Sale specific to the state you are selling from. This bill of sale also includes a detailed checklist to insure that it is completed properly for both buyer and seller.

SHIPPING: Anglers Edge Marine can arrange local, national and international shipping at the expense of the buyer unless otherwise agreed.

OVERSEAS BUYERS: This has become very common in the past ten years. With the Euro strong and getting stronger it will become even more common. This has opened up an entirely new market for potential buyers. If you get an overseas buyer let us handle everything for you. International transactions can be tricky in many ways. We have sold countless boats to over a dozen different countries. Let us protect you in this situation. Again there is no additional charge.

We feel that these services make selling your boat virtually hassle-free and protect the seller from large commissions that traditional brokers demand. After all you don't need a broker. You just need a buyer. If you have any questions about this service we encourage you to give us a call.

Great job Bob, the Mako is on its way to Va.
Chalk up another from a satisfied customer..:)
Hey Bob,

Congrats man! That sure didn't take long. Funny thing is that I put up another Mako the same day we did yours. The owner of that mako has a guy coming up from Texas to buy his 1999 233 Mako!!

Man they are selling easy right now.

Tight lines and again congrats! Glad to here my service worked for you!

Thanks Bob :)

It was the best $200.00 I ever spent. Sold my Mako 233 to a fisherman in Texas. He drove all the way to NJ to pick it up and pulled out of the driveway last night, the Mako is headed for it's new home in TX. When he called I didn't think he was serious about buying a boat in NJ. I got a call the following day from Dunk a surveyor who is a bassbarn member. He said he was hired by a customer in TX to do a survey on the boat and would be coming to check it out. SOLD !
Thanks again Bob
Larry:) :) :) :) :)

Thanks fellas!!! Appreciate the kind words!

Larry I really liked the guy that bought your Mako. I think he's gonna give her a nice home. I got a little worried when I saw the tornado warnings in TN the night he was driving back.

Thanks again Larry. Let me know if you need help finding a Cat. More than happy to help.

Hey Scott,

Yeah that has been happening. A couple websites I use feed to secondary sites like oodle. I have put in a request to pull boat from those feeds as well but it is easier if I can remove serveral at a time. I have a bunch sold and will do it this week.

For thest of the barn guys selling boats. GET LISTED NOW!!! I lost track of the boats sold this week. I am gonna try to figure it out later today and will post the stats as always.

Tight lines, Bob

Yea Bob, you do such a good job of advertising, I am still getting calls also.:D
I know, I'm sorry for the calls. I am trying to figure out where the ads seem to be sticky. I feed so many sites now it gets tough to nail down. Last time I checked we were hitting 47 websites with the ads:eek:

I may have to request a pull of all inventory and then refresh to get rid of the sold boats.

I promise to get it taken care of this week...

Tight lines, Bob

Stats for the past 14 days

Hey Guys,

Any of you guys with boats for sale getting serious yet?? You need to call me an get it listed. How can you possible go wrong with spending $199 to list your boat on near 50 websites for as long as it takes to sell your boat?? It would cost you the same to have just Boattrader and the saltydog for one month then it would be deleted for you to pay again!!

Anyway, Here are the boats sold in the last two weeks. There are also a bunch under contract. I am probably forgetting a few as well.

Below the list are some comments from my customers:

1999 Aquasport 215 DC
2004 213 Glastron CC
1984 Privateer Renegade 24
1987 Ebbtide Dyna Trac 196
2006 Sailfish 2360 Center Console
2005 Jones Brothers Cape Fisherman LT 1800 CC
2003 Proline 30S
1995 Albemarle 27
1998 Albemarle 27
2005 17 Sterling Skiff
2004 Hydra Sports 2400 CC
2005 Tahoe 228
2005 Hydra-Sports 18 FT Center Console

Bernie Hamill

Add a 2004 Sea Hunt 2320 SOLD, and a Robalo 235 under contract!!

Kinda funny everyone thinks the market is so bad yet I am approaching 90 boats sold since January 1st:eek:

Even if you are skeptical about the market why not list it?? The ads never expire. So unless you plan to keep your boat for the rest of your life you will have to sell it at somepoint right??

Tight lines, Bob
