Boat Trader launches mobile app

Boat Trader has launched a new app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The company said the new app provides “fast and easy access” to the website’s listings for new and used boats. Boat Trader says that more than 75 percent of its customers use a mobile device to view boats.

Features of the app include a “boats near you,” redesigned search and browse functions, the ability to view details, photos and sellers. It also allows users the ability to save boats.

“The new app provides consumers with a tool for shopping for boats that includes updated features such as price change alerts and newly listed boats that match their preferences,” Sam Fulton, CEO of Boat Trader, said in a statement. “Boat Trader is already known for its ability to connect more boat buyers with sellers than any other source, but we’re making this process even faster by leveraging the core capabilities of an app.”
