YachtWorld Launches iPad App

Now you can browse for your next dreamboat from the comfort of your iPad.

Everyone knows that YachtWorld is the go-to site for buying and selling brokerage boats, and most also appreciate that it’s perhaps the best nautical eye-candy site ever built for those who love sailing yachts and powerboats of all types.

With the introduction of its new iPad app, YachtWorld just got better for visitors who love both activities…in addition to easy and immediate access to more than 125,000 brokerage listings, users can troll through a full-screen Editorial Showcase, where selected photo essays spotlight remarkable yachts, special events, affordable boats, and a world of watery sailing and yachting venues in which we’d all like to spend more time.

If you’re shopping, the app provides easy access to YachtWorld’s unequaled global selection of boats for sale online. The difference is that the primary user interface invites visual browsing of boat listings, while still providing easy ways to narrow a search to the vessels of the size, price, brand or year of your choice. The new app also makes it possible to save searches for one-touch access, add boats to a Favorites list for easy viewing and monitoring, and access full-screen viewing of all pictures in landscape orientation.

And when you’re worn out from shopping, relax with a stroll through the Editorial Showcase full of photos by outstanding photographers and words provided by YachtWorld’s award-winning journalists.

The free YachtWorld iPad app can be downloaded from the iTunes store.
