We have been one of the most active communities of boat enthusiasts in the United States for many years now, and we are looking forward to bringing the same kind of service and affordable products to the international market.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
iboats.com, the largest full-featured marine-related Internet site in North America, is expanding its international reach. Due to favorable foreign exchange rates in many countries, buying American goods can be very advantageous. Many of these countries face extremely high prices on their locally produced marine products, and iboats.com is providing an opportunity for these customers to find the supplies they need at a more reasonable price.
There are some instances in which the cost of marine related goods and services is too high for the casual boaters, and this is making American products and boats look more attractive. In some cases it is possible to get better prices on these items even after factoring in the shipping and tariff costs.
“We’re really excited about the potential of these new markets,” said Bruno Vassel, president of iboats.com. “We have been one of the most active communities of boat enthusiasts in the United States for many years now, and we are looking forward to bringing the same kind of service and affordable products to the international market.”
Compared to the U.S., many countries have a much higher boat ownership per capita ratio, which suggests that the company will have many opportunities in these new territories. The USA’s per capita ratio (according to the International Boat Industry’s website) is 1:23. Countries like Canada and Denmark have a 1:15 ratio, while Norway and Sweden actually have a ratio of 1:7.
“There are great boating communities all over the world,” Vassel added. “And we are looking forward to reaching them with our services and products. With millions of boat owners in these countries, this is a chance to take advantage of some great values and use some of our marine resources.”
iboats.com has over 150,000 unique OEM and aftermarket boating parts, accessories, and engine parts, which consists of over 1.8 million SKUs. Many of these components will now be available to the international market as well as the domestic.
iboats.com, located in Salt Lake City, Utah is a privately held corporation that focuses on building the sales and profits of marine retailers, and providing new and used boat information and e-commerce to consumers. More information on iboats.com services is available at http://www.iboats.com.
