Frequently asked questions, quick answers
No response from the advertiser. What could be the reason for this?
- Did you really enter a valid telephone number?
- Was your email address perhaps incomplete, were there typing errors?
- Did the seller even have enough time to reply?
- Perhaps the seller is currently negotiating with other interested parties?
- Perhaps the boat has already been sold?
