    “Having decided to take out a Platinum Package with Boats and Outboards I have been astounded with the results! So much so that I am struggling to find stock for the boats I have already sold. As this is supposed to be our quiet time for selling boats, what it will be like when the season starts could be mind boggling! We have had excellent exposure on the site with plenty of serious leads which have led to a very high conversion rate into sales. Since taking the advertising Broker Package I have not needed to advertise in any other media. Thank you to the Team at Boats and Outboards” - CTC Marine
