"Peter, I want to thank you again for helping with the sale of the 1940
ChrisCraft. I never expected that something that valuable could be sold so
quickly for the full asking price. I consider myself very fortunate to have
found the web site. The funds transfer was seamless. It really was a
pleasure doing business with you"
"Peter, this is just a brief note to thank you for your assistance in the
sale of our 1940 CC sportsman. Thanks to you, the
potentially very slow process was completed in a matter of days. The full
asking price was met. And the mechanics of the transaction were completed
expeditiously. Needless to say, I can,without reservation, recommend your
Doug from Bentwood Boats says,
"I was contacted by Peter while trying to sell a boat on Ebay. In my Ebay listing I included a link to other wood boats that we were also trying to sell. He explained how the site worked and that I had nothing to lose by listing our boat inventory with him. Within 10 days he secured a buyer for our '42 Chris Craft Barrel Back. The deal went down flawlessly. The buyer was thrilled to finally find his dream boat and I had a great new source to sell from. Soon afterwards he found me a buyer from France to purchase our '57 Holiday, again sold to a happy buyer. In the past 12 months Peter Mellon and Antique Boat America have been responsible for the sale of 4 of our boats. Peter is always available to answer questions regarding wood boats of any kind. His knowledge of the history of our passion is without compare. Peter has worked in many ways to bring local and national attention to wood boating. He is one of our biggest advocates. As Antique Boat America continues to grow so will we."
"I have always been a proponent of getting more for less, one-stop
shopping, and along the way hopefully receiving cheerful service.
Unfortunately this was not the case when I looked for a web-based site
for selling my antique wooden boat. After several hundred dollars spent
to list my boat with American Boat Listing ... and a host of
others over a period of 2 years I was really dissatisfied since all they
ever did was call you each week to re-register and paid their listing
fee - then never heard from them again. Nor did my boat sell but instead
I got spam mail from "partner" listing companies saying I should list
with them. Ugh.
That was until I found Peter Mellon's Antique Boat America website
(www.antiqueboatamerica.com). Not only did he understand wooden boats
but also the best ways to showcase their boats in a no nonsense,
presentable, and professional (read easy to navigate) website. It also
did not demand payment up front if the boat sold or not. In fact, he
also acts as the escrow holder to protect his customers and their
prospective buyers. This was finally an answer to what I was looking for
because it was so simple to list the boat and in a way I wanted.
And it sold within a month of listing. Clearly no argument can be given
better than success and I highly recommend Peter's site to make sure the
right buyers gets connected to the right purchase. It simply works.
