While there are many companies that buy boats, Boat Trader is the most trusted boating marketplace in the U.S. When selling your boat, you want to be sure that you are dealing with a reputable buyer. Our Driveway Direct program connects you with reputable dealers in your area, so you can be confident with a worry-free and safe transaction.
Boat Trader’s Driveway Direct program is the safest and fastest way to get an offer on your boat online from a reputable dealer. Dealers from our trusted network will contact you directly and extend an offer. Once you accept an offer, the dealer will conduct the inspection and cut you a check if the boat meets their requirements.
Dealers participating in the Driveway Direct program offer a fair wholesale price for your boat. While this price may be less than selling it directly to a consumer, it’s far safer, faster, and more convenient. To price your boat, dealers use Boat Trader’s industry-leading sold boat data and active listings data and pair it with existing third-party data to ensure a fair deal.
