  • Crashes, and has trouble keeping place when returning to listings Sep 14, 2019

    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.

    Yes you can see boats, but the app requires me to log in every single time you open it, often it won't even let me log in and doesn't save my boats or searches. Photos load incredibly slow. In fact the only thing that works well on this app is that the advertisements load super fast. Get it together Boat Trader.

  • Great & in need of refinement Jul 5, 2019

    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 :)

  • Great app but it still needs some work. Jul 12, 2020

    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

    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.

    App only works some of the time. Try to put in search criteria, and most of the time it just crashes. Once it crashes, nothing works. You can't go back. I couldn't even change it to sort low to high, and it would just say, no boat meets your criteria, or something like that. The app has had these problems for a long time, and it never gets fixed. Friends of mine have been having the same problems.

    Updated from 2019. This app is terrible and no fixes forthcoming. App locks up all the time. Display is not optimized for devices. Zoom in on pictures actually make the picture smaller. Do you people even read reviews? Why would anyone pay to advertise their boats here?

  • Worst app I have ever used Aug 19, 2019

    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.

    They probably spent more time on 5* bots than development of the app. There is no way real people gave this app 5* review.

    Terrible app. Just like all Trader Publication apps. Very cumbersome search features. Search results are never correct. Worthless!

  • Glitches Sep 24, 2020

    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

  • Great service Jun 8, 2020

    By stuvol72
    This will be my second time use in this app to connect with local boat shoppers, have had a great overall experience the first time , which is why I chose them again out of dozens of similar services

    would have been five stars if you had more filter options.
  • Could be better... Oct 21, 2020

    By JamesC008
    I like this app, but I would like it better if it was easier to view photos on my iPhone and the app was less glitchy. Performance has improved lately with updates but not yet 5 stars.

  • Why? Mar 8, 2019

    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 Sep 20, 2020

    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.

  • Good app— however Jul 2, 2019

    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.

  • Missing features Jan 4, 2021

    By MMHHTTRR
    Lets you search, save searches and save boats you like. No alert set up feature when a new boat is listed. Does not tell you how long a boat has been listed. Does not tell you when a boat’s price was lowered. Does not tell you how long ago a boat’s priced was lowered. Again these are all features that they should be able to incorporate into the app but have not.

    By Rob Simmes
    When I click on the email links, I never go to the actual boat, it just opens the main search screen and hardly ever opens the app. There are way too many ads on this app when sellers already have to pay to advertise their boat for sale.there is no way to filter out the boats that say "call for price " they even show up and clutter my list when I specify a price range. I can't put in an actual search string and search for that string. It makes me search for other criteria. More issues ....

  • App locks up Nov 15, 2020

    By Waffles12348
    Great app but whenever the user tries to enlarge photos, the app locks up and won’t allow the picture to be closed or backed out of. So, I constantly have to delete the app and reinstall it. I have done this like 10x in a couple weeks. Other than that, I really like the search features etc. Just don’t try to zoom in on any of the photos.

    This is an extremely frustrating app to use. So slow and constantly crashes or freezes. Please fix your app.
