Yatco acquires BoatDeck and YachtandBoat

Yatco, the online multiple listing service for buying, selling and chartering yachts, has acquired BoatDeck and YachtAndBoat, two of the largest providers of marine websites and lead generation technology in the Asia Pacific region.

Founded in 2000 by seven professional yacht broker associations known as the International Yacht Council, Yachtcouncil.com, and Yachtcouncil.org, Yatco, based in Florida, is an online Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for buying and selling yachts, chartering yachts, manufacturers, boat builders, and shipyards.

This new purchase doubles the size of Yatco’s inventory listings and gives a dramatic boost to its international member base.

Steven Myers, CEO and Founder of Yatco, sees the acquisition as an opportunity for growth.

He commented:

BoatDeck was founded in 2010 and offers a full suite of web development services and boating website design for the marine industry. It was the first to provide multi-list software to the Australian and New Zealand markets and, in the past 10 years, has built over 500 websites.

Rebecca Jones, Managing Director of BoatDeck, believes their knowledge base in Asia Pacific will complement the projected expansion.

She said:

YachtAndBoat was founded in 2007 as a boating lifestyle website with boat sales classifieds, and boating and safety information to attract new boaters into the market and provide dealers/brokers with an advertising platform to showcase listings. It is now one of Australia’s largest and most well-established boat sales websites, with more than 7,000 new and used boats for sale.
