NARROW DOWN YOUR SEARCH You can easily browse new or used boats by type, or narrow down your search by price, make, model, length, year, and location. Looking to narrow it down even more?

You can view basic information such as price, make, model, length, year, and location, or look at more detailed information such as engine hours and hull material. CONTACT SELLERS Once you’ve found a boat that’s right for you, the Boat Trader app makes it easy to contact the seller by allowing you to either call or message them directly from within the app.

  • Crashes, and has trouble keeping place when returning to listings


    By marbs34
    The app crashes and restarts without saving your search data. It has trouble keeping you in place where you were scrolling when returning back to search results after viewing a listing. This means you will have to scroll through a couple of dozen listings again just to find where you were at. Then when it’s all done and you’ve resumed where you were, it crashes when you click on another ad... Other than that the sorting functions are very competent and so are the search parameters, good job there. Only other thing this that you cannot choose to view pictures larger and it would be nice to have a picture viewer like Zillow to see the photos easier.
  • Great App


    By EstoZui
    This App has a functional and easy to use interface. It allows users to filter down to the exact type of boat one is searching for. I particularly like the save feature. The only negative I have, is that the App signs you out too quickly, I found myself having to log back in several times during a session in order to save another vessel to my saved file. Other than that, love the app.
  • Great & in need of refinement


    By SpancyPants
    This is a huge step up from the broken Boat Trader site I used to use. There are a few nit picky things left to update. 1: hitting back shouldn’t log you out. I feel this is just a bug. 2: a better browser search interface. Maybe a list of manufacturers could be helpful. Still tho, much, much better than before :)
  • Worst app I have ever used


    By trekkor123
    It is astounding that it is so highly rated. Makes me suspicious. It constantly freezes. Every action you do seems to be a delay. You are bombarded with ads (probably a good part of the problem). Every time you click done to get out of a boat listing, it erases all your filters you just created, so you have to start your search all over again. Sometimes it won’t even show the done button, so you have to close the app completely and reopen it. It doesn’t allow you to save any filter settings in your profile for quick searches later. It is truly the worst app I have ever used. By the way, I’m using an iPad that’s fully updated.
  • Great app but it still needs some work.


    By I-sleep
    You run into issues when you want to view pictures full screen. If they show up it’s great, but most of the time they don’t. If I go back after looking at a particular listing the app has trouble keeping up and the next listing I click on was the last one I viewed. I have to scroll through a couple of pics before it catches up. Also maybe having types of boats other than the main 3 that’s in the filter section would be a good idea. Thanks
  • Enjoying so far


    By ImMikeLowery
    1. I would like to see only new listing when I return to a saved search (like eBay app) 2. Option to enlarge and zoom on photos would be very helpful. 3. Option to view hull styles like cat, flat, V etc. would make searching easier.
  • Why?


    By TJ071966
    I gave it three stars because it works, but I can’t find any reason to use it instead of the mobile website. You can create an account with your email on the website, but can’t use it on the app. The app doesn’t have any more functions than the website. It still has ads. The look on the app is slightly better, but not enough to overcome the other shortcomings. Overall, I don’t see any reason to use this app, and I have gone back to the website.
  • Bug fixes needed


    By gtschattgen
    I like the app for it extensively broad database and the search filters however trying to simply adjust a particular filter once selected is not possible. You have to start over and retype in the manufacture then select all filters over again. This has to be fixed...time consuming hassle to start over for every search.
  • Glitches


    By AB vccffbbbn
    The app gets goofed up on iPhone when trying to look at pictures closer , I’ve had to delete and reinstall it several times because it’s frozen on pictures
  • Good app— however


    By leemiller24atbellsouthdotnet
    This app is good, you are able to search for boats relatively east. However... if I’m doing a search specifically for used boats, 2014 and under, I still get bombarded with 2019 (new boats) from dealers... please fix this.... I understand these places generate revenue, but the bottom is covered in ads. It makes me think the app is artificially generating things outside of my search- which destroys any confidence I have in it.
