Am I the only one that finds the new format much less functional?
No, everyone I know is complaining about the lack of the advanced search. Now, last I knew the advanced search was still available on the UK side.
I don't like the new format either. Thanks ob!
"Statistical Department for web design reports massive spike in boat buying activity in Europe! It appears that Western Europe is surging in their interest to invest in the boating market. Brokers respond accordingly by shifting their marketing efforts to capture this new spike in demand."
Oh, the unintended consequences...
Oh, is that what it is? I was thinking it was my computer ...lol.
Yes it stinks.
The app makes using it a bit better but the lack of advance search is the biggest issue.
Feedback sent.... suggest others do the same....
I know many who have. I know no one who has received a response.
There are a lot of inadequate search utilities on web sites. When I have trouble with them, I use the site search extension available for chrome based browsers ( works on Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi, e.g.) It searches only the site domain using Google search, although the extension comes from someone else. Too many search utilities on websites, and especially forums, look for instances of each word in the search parameters individually, even if grouped with quotation marks. It could suit your purposes until the site wises up.
That could help.
Sad part, YW already had a nice advanced search and they removed it for some reason.
YATCO is the backside of YW and still has their advanced filtered search feature.
Not US based.
Update, I tried to use the filter / search to this site.
Also; Did not present the boats in the U.S. I know are list on YW.
Correct. Just wanted to provide another option for those who were not aware.
Boatwizard is the back side of Yachtworld for brokers. Boatwizard has no keyword search which I think is ridiculous. I have contacted them numerous times and the typical reply if I get one at all is platitudes. My clients are not happy about the YW advanced search changes. Not a day goes by without hearing about it.
Apparently on the other side of the pond this is a problem. We use www.apolloduck.co.uk for almost all searches
I searched a few of the brokerage firms in my area - Racine, WI. The Yachtworld site has them listed but now no names of the staff brokers. Maybe it is me - operator error!?
---- and if I want to search the 4xx series of Silverton aft cabins do I have to wade through the over 400 Silverton listings. I must be missing something. I am computer challenged.
...and only 15 results per page? (unless I'm doing something wrong)
