If 1% of the boats were sold during a month - the theoretic sales time would then be 100 months or 8 years.
2% would be 50 months or four years.
But since 2006 the monthly YW-sales have been far down under 1 %.
Indeed a buyers market where the sellers patience and the best possible individual presentation of a yacht is essential..!

YW new sletter from September 2010 about sales in August 2010 - copy of latest news letter on request



Info from YachtWorld as repeated in their february 2009 sales letter..!



4 million monthly visitors and 2.450 brokers means an average of only 1.630 "monthly visitors" per broker.
Compare the number of claimed monthly visitors to updated info from www.eupete.eu (see below)

Compared to this hugohein.eu had an average of 20.000 monthly unique visits from August 2009 to July 2010
from more than 100 countries. Monthly average page views (boats shown) were 73.000



Numbers of monthly "visits" etc. on a major website like yachtworld.eu and boats.eu (same owners)
can be checked at www.eupete.eu

Period: August 2009 to July 2010




One million monthly visitors on YachtWorld and 2.450 brokers means an average of only 408 "monthly visitors" per broker - According to Compete.eu

One thing is the number of visits - another is the number of "unique visitors"
