Yachtworld.com debuts mobile Web sites

YachtWorld.com, a leading Internet yacht brokerage portal, added 11 international mobile-phone-friendly Web sites to its portfolio.

Optimized for iPhone/iPodTouch, Blackberry (OS4.6+) and Android devices, YachtWorld.com now has mobile-phone-friendly Web sites in the following countries: Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States.

Translated into the appropriate languages, all mobile-phone Web sites feature shortened contact seller form, a greater number of drop-down selection lists on the boat search form, image sizes optimized to ensure they load quickly and boat images accessible with just one click.

"Industry trends are suggesting that within the next few years, nearly 50 percent of all Web browsing will occur on a mobile device," said Mike Dickman, director of marketing, in a statement.

"In addition, it has been stated that the mobile Internet market will be at least twice the size of desktop Internet," he added. "Given these mobile trend indicators, it makes good business sense to have Web sites that meet the needs of those people searching the Internet for our broker clients' products. It benefits both the boat buyer and our clients."

YachtWorld.com and Soundings Trade Only are both divisions of Dominion Enterprises.
