2. Buying and Selling Boats and watercraft
boatbuyer is a classified listing service that brings together buyers and sellers of boats and water craft. Information about a particular boat, sailboat and other watercraft is supplied by the seller and not by boatbuyer. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller. Though we hope that all who use boatbuyer will act honourably and treat each other fairly, we can't verify the information sellers supply or guarantee the boat, sailboat and other watercraft they offer. Nor can we assure the seller of a boat, sailboat and other watercraft that the check he/she gets from the buyer is valid. When using this website to sell your boat, sailboat and other watercraft or to buy a boat, sailboat and other watercraft, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling a vehicle or merchandise through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper.
When you offer a boat, sailboat and other watercraft for sale through boatbuyer, you must be prepared to sell that boat, sailboat and other watercraft at the price at which, and the terms on which, you've listed it. You must have the ability to transfer title or ownership. To list a boat, sailboat and other watercraft for sale on boatbuyer, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit buyers to communicate directly with the seller. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any boat, sailboat and other watercraft listed for sale on boatbuyer, nor may you use our website to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product or service. Sell Your Boat listings are available to sellers who want to list their boat, sailboat and other watercraft for sale. boatbuyer reserves the right to deny use of this website to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses our website in a manner we consider inappropriate.
Responsibility for the information contained in listings lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages transmitted through boatbuyer. Nothing will undermine a user's confidence in the boat, sailboat and other watercraft you're trying to sell faster than inaccurate statements or misleading representations about the boat, sailboat and other watercraft. And since any erosion of user confidence in you is likely to be accompanied by erosion of user confidence in us, we care deeply about making sure that the information you supply is accurate and that, in all respects, you treat boatbuyer users fairly and honourably.
Although boatbuyer cannot monitor all the listings posted to our website, we reserve the right (but assume no obligation) to delete, move, or edit any listings or other postings that come to our attention that we consider unacceptable or inappropriate, whether for legal or other reasons. By using boatbuyer you agree not to post or transmit any defamatory, abusive, obscene, threatening, misleading, or illegal material, or any other material that infringes on the rights of others or interferes with the ability of others to enjoy boatbuyer. We retain the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated these terms or any other term of this agreement.
By submitting a listing through our advertising service, you agree to pay the fees specified for the listing package you select, regardless of whether your boat, sailboat and other watercraft or product sells as a result of the listing. You agree to the use of a debt collection agency, and to incur associated charges should they be required.
