Boatshop24.com is Europe’s premier boating marketplace and is part of the busiest marine classifieds network in Europe, connecting boat buyers, sellers and enthusiasts. Boatshop4.com offers a wide selection of boats, equipment and marine services. It also provides industry leading marketing and web services to boat brokers, manufacturers and service companies across the European marine industry.
Having launched in Germany in 2000, Boatshop24.com was acquired in 2007 by the Friday Media Group, an organisation with over 40 years experience connecting buyers and sellers through classified websites and publications. In 2021, Boatshop24.com was acquired by Boats Group, the leading group in online recreational boats sales.
In 2010, Boats.com, YachtWorld and Boat Trader joined forces as the three leading marine websites to form Boats Group (then operated as Dominion Marine Media). In July 2016, Boats Group was acquired by Apax Partners and then by Permira Funds in February 2021. Boats Group's brands - Boat Trader, YachtWorld, boats.com, iNautia, Cosas De Barcos, Botentekoop, Annonces du Bateau, Boats and Outboards, Boatshop24 and Boot24.com - are the world’s leading online boating marketplaces, connecting the largest global audience of boat buyers with top sellers and manufacturers.
