  • Great & in need of refinement Jul 5, 2019

    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 :)

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

    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.

    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 ....

  • 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.

    Needs work Freezes up after using it for a search and scrolling through results. When looking at search results and then viewing a specific boat, when you hit "back" to return to the search list it doesn't place you back in the same spot in the results, so difficult to determine what you've already looked at. Website is a better option than using this app.

    Very buggy and needs work. I am continuously running into issues in which the page freezes when I am viewing my search results. I can always tell when it is about to happen because the content load time slows down. I am using an Note 10 connected to Verizon Fios when experiencing the issue so my data connection is not the problem. I hope you all fix it.

    Very clunky. Locks up. The filter loses data, having to re-enter price or length over and over. Not a very useful app.

  • Terrific app Sep 15, 2018

    By Chuckdee4206969
    Like a lighthouse sending a beacon of hope, this app will guide you to to the safe waters of a comfortable and easy boat purchase. Intuitive and comprehensive, the format of the BT app is comfortably appointed to make your next boat purchase as easy as putzing around with Jimmy Buffet playing in the background!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    App is nearly unusable. It logs out constantly, losing my current search and the boat that I tried clicking like on. I could see this being a great app if it would work consistently.

  • 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.
