Listings

Listings are pages in boatXchg.com representing individual suppliers, service providers, or other resources supporting the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of antique and classic boats. BoatXchg.com listings provide a web presence for businesses just like any other website on the Internet. BoatXchg.com listings can be found through any Internet search engine, including Google, Bing, Yahoo, and others, in addition to boatXchg.com searches.

Our listing database currently exceeds 1,000 listings. We identified these listings through an exhaustive search of the Internet, including GoogleFacebook, and links from various other boating sites, along with those businesses with which we were already personally familiar as a result of our attendance at various boat shows around the country, professional relationships, and personal experience.
