Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find out if a boat you toured is still for sale?2023-09-13T18:43:17+00:00

Underneath each episode, you’ll see a written description with the link ‘…more’. Click on the ‘…more’ link to show the full show write-up.  If the boat is still for sale, the owner or broker information will be listed there. If it’s not there, that means the seller has asked us to remove it as the boat has been sold.


Do you work on commission or other compensation?2023-09-11T17:01:54+00:00

Nope. We only make money through the content creator routes – YouTube ad revenue, Patreon, Merchandise sales. We figured it would taint our opinion of the boats to take any type of commission or fee… and we wanted to have an unspoiled view of each boat we toured
