Craigslist adds boat-dealer category

Posted on

Craigslist recently added a “Boats by Dealer” category to its site.

Although a section on Craigslist for “Boats” previously existed, many dealers had their ads flagged or received e-mails from Craigslist users who believed that only private sellers should post items for sale on the popular website.

Although the new “Boats by Dealer” category can’t guarantee that dealer ads won’t be flagged in the future, it should alleviate many of the frustrations dealers have experienced, according to Nucleus, a data distribution service that helps dealers post inventory on Craigslist.

“We’re glad that Craigslist finally added the ‘Boats by Dealer’ category,” Nucleus general manager Evan Davis said in a statement. “We believe this enhancement will reinvigorate the dealer’s use of Craigslist as a valuable tool in their marketing efforts.”

    I am very excited to hear about this new category and we will use it often. We have found much success in advertising on Craigslist and appreciate their efforts in recognizing the broker ads. Art Kaplan, CPYB, LaConner Yacht Sales.

    I’m thrilled that CraigsList has added this catagory! I suggested it to them several months ago, which most likely was backed by other dealers. Thanks, CL, we really appreciate it!

    This is a great add, now we just need them to add a boating parts section to really clean up the category.
