Looking through some important yachting sites, related to brokerage, brokers, companies and almost everything related to yachts in general, I discovered with great sadness that the company of which co-founder I was, disappeared altogether from the market. It was expected, only I wouldn't ever thought it was going to happen so soon. A few months ago, still, the remaining guys were paying top dollar advertising around, thing I haven't advised at the time I was still in charge. It was hard to … [Read more...]

Editing through the first posts SEO section, one of the most difficult tasks I've done since the re-opening, or better said, the re-launching of this blog, I've seen how messy was the Google acquired Blogspot model.

After today, I wish I'd take every point in the previous two posts, 6 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying and Next 7 Questions on Purchasing, and extend a little what is all about, seriously, meaning the art of purchasing boats and the beauty of it.
