Press Release | April 5, 2001

iboats.com today announced that it received over one million unique visitor sessions on its network of sites during the month of March 2001. This represents a 41% increase over February and a 50% average monthly growth rate since the beginning of the year.

iboats.com also reported that the average boat listed in their classifieds section was viewed over 350 times in March, yielding one of the highest views per boat listed ratios in the industry.

“We're thrilled that we are able to deliver such high value to our boat dealer partners,” said Bruno Vassel III, President and CEO. “Not only are consumers flocking to our sites in record numbers, but they're spending their time in areas that help our boat dealer partners to sell more boats and accessories–fulfilling our corporate mission to build the business of traditional Marine Retailers.”

The fact that iboats.com continues to rack up substantial traffic levels is further evidence of its leadership role in the online marine retailing business both with the boating consumers and Marine Retailers.

“More and more dealers and advertisers every month are recognizing the power of iboats in helping them build their business as they join our retailer partner team,” Vassel stated. “Our unique combination of high traffic, boat listings, an online store, and custom Web site packages gives marine retailers the tools they need to build their sales and profits online.”

Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, iboats.com is a privately held company that provides marine retailers with the online tools they need to build their businesses, including boat classified listings across a network of 200+ iboats-owned marine-related sites, an online store, and a customizable Web site for under $300.
