YachtWorld.com, a Dominion Marine Media business, announced it is providing an inventory feed to BoatQuest.com.

The arrangement is the result of an agreement between Dominion Marine Media and Active Interest Media, which is also the parent company of Soundings Trade Only. It provides YachtWorld.com members with additional online listing exposure directly from BoatWizard without creating any additional work for the broker.

“Management teams for both sites recognize the increasing importance of sharing inventory data easily and accurately,” Dominion Marine Media vice president and general manager Ian Atkins said in a statement. “This arrangement, which expands the promotional options available to our broker members, is an important example of the new products and services we will be launching.”

YachtWorld.com generates 1.6 million unique visitors a month who conduct 5.6 million searches. Brokers who also are listing their boats on BoatQuest can take advantage of this new service to seamlessly export their inventory to an alternative website that generates more than 3.5 million visits a year, according to YachtWorld.com.

“Through this strategic collaboration with YachtWorld we are able to provide more Internet lead opportunities to mutual clients,” BoatQuest general manager Mike Dickman said in a statement. “Our goal is to generate additional leads without creating additional work.”

YachtWorld brokers who want information about setting up their inventory feed can contact BoatQuest.com at sales@boatquest.com.
