STUART, Fla. – BoaterRated will now host a website where boaters can rate and share information on boating-related businesses, according to a release from the company. Consumers can look up the ratings and reviews when making buying decisions.
Dealers and marine businesses can encourage customers to post on the BoaterRated site using free tools provided by BoaterRated.
“There are lots of companies and individuals offering quality services to boaters, and we’ve personally found it challenging to find quality providers,” said Carl Schellbach, a partner in BoaterRated LLC. “You can walk down any dock, ask boaters you see, ‘Who does a good job?’ and you’re likely to get several completely different answers. So how do you choose? The investment made in people’s boats, both in time and money, deserves better research tools. Until now, there hasn’t been an easy-to-use, objective, no-cost source where boaters could turn to find consensus. BoaterRated.com’s Virtual Dockside, with its one- to five-star ratings and reviews, is just that place.”
Boater Rated is an independent company and it plans to expand its coverage to additional geographic areas in the future.
