Welcome to BoatQuest. By using this website, you accept the terms of this Visitor Agreement. Please read this agreement carefully.
1. General Provisions
The Web is an evolving medium. BoatQuest may change the terms of this agreement from time to time. By continuing to use this website and following our posting of such changes, you agree to be bound by this agreement, as modified. BoatQuest may change, restrict access to, suspend, or discontinue this website, or any portion of this website, at any time.
The material that appears on BoatQuest is for informational purposes only. Despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time. Before purchasing goods or services you’ve read about on BoatQuest, you should confirm with the vendor any information (including the price) that is important to your purchasing decision. BoatQuest is not responsible for, and does not guarantee the performance of, any such goods or services.
We invite you to bring to our attention any material on our site that you believe to be inaccurate. Please forward a copy of the material to our Customer Service Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org along with an explanation of your objection.
2. Buying and Selling Boats, Sailboats and other Watercrafts
BoatQuest is a shopping service that brings together buyers and sellers of boats, sailboats and other watercrafts. Information about a particular boat, sailboat and other watercraft is supplied by the seller and not by BoatQuest. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller. The prices listed by sellers on BoatQuest often exclude sales tax, finance charges, title, license, regulatory, dealer documentary, compliance fees, and other related charges, any or all of which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final sale price of a particular boat, sailboat and other watercraft. Though we hope that all who come to BoatQuest will act honorably 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. There is no substitute for healthy skepticism and your own good judgment.
When you offer a boat, sailboat and other watercraft for sale through BoatQuest, 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 BoatQuest, 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 BoatQuest, 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. BoatQuest 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 BoatQuest. 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 BoatQuest users fairly and honorably.
Though we can’t monitor every transaction that originates on BoatQuest, we may perform random quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer boat, sailboat and other watercraft for sale over BoatQuest are prepared to sell the boat, sailboat and other watercraft they advertise at the prices at which, and the terms on which, they advertise them. By using our Sell Your Boat service, you agree to cooperate in these random quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller is engaging in “bait and switch” or other unfair or deceptive practices, BoatQuest reserves the right to deny that seller use of the Sell Your Boat service.
Although BoatQuest 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 BoatQuest 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 BoatQuest. We retain the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated these terms or any other term of this agreement. We will not, in the ordinary course of business, review the content of private electronic messages that are not addressed to BoatQuest. However, we may occasionally release information concerning such communications when release is appropriate to comply with law (including disclosure in response to a request from a law enforcement agency), to enforce our Visitor Agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, our advertisers, the public or BoatQuest.
By submitting a listing through our Sell Your Boat service, you agree to pay the fees specified for the listing package you select, regardless of whether your boat, sailboat and other watercraft sells as a result of the listing. Take care in selecting your listing package and inputting your listing information; listing fees are generally not refundable, even if you provide erroneous information or fail to sell your boat, sailboat and other watercraft.
3. Links to Other Sites
For your convenience, we make available a variety of links to other websites that we don’t operate where you can obtain related products and services, including but not limited to insurance, warranties, financing and inspection services. Although we encourage you to consult such websites, we cannot guarantee the prices, terms, quality, reliability or performance of the products or services provided by these vendors. BoatQuest is not responsible for the products or services these vendors provide. You release BoatQuest and its affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against them, arising from your purchase or use of third-party supplied products and services.
For your convenience, we make available links to websites operated by dealers that list their boats in our online classifieds. Although we may power some of these websites, we are not responsible for any of the content that appears on these sites, including, without limitation, promotional contests and sweepstakes offers. We do not co-sponsor, operate, endorse or guarantee any advertiser sweepstakes or contest offer that may be promoted from time to time on our site, or that may be accessible through a link from our site, and you release BoatQuest and its affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against them, arising from your entry, participation or acceptance of any prize in any such sweepstakes or contest offer.
