Buyer FAQs

We make it easier for you to locate hard to find boat parts, supplies and equipment.  And it’s all free to use.


How does it work?

We connect you with used boat parts, supplies and equipment vendors.  Our member merchants include stores, shops, marine consignment stores and all types of vendors.  The service is free for you to use.  You can search 3 ways on our site:

  1. Send Freddy the Ferret on a mission.  You simply complete our simple form that specifies the item you’re seeking, choose a country and state, how you want to be contacted, and click.  Your e-mail is then sent out to multiple vendors.  The members in our network who have your item will contact you with details.  Then you pick the best deal and make the purchase.  The purchase is strictly between you and the vendor.  We don’t get involved and we don’t get a commission on your purchase.
  2. Search for used boat parts by category. Select a category, such as Electronics or Outboard Parts and find vendors worldwide who may have the part.
  3. Find vendors by location.  Just enter the Country and State or Province to find vendors who may have the part you’re seeking.

Send an e-mail inquiry to multiple vendors (“Send Freddy On A Mission”).

Click on the “Search 3 Ways” button and complete the “Send Freddy On A Mission” form in the left column.  Your inquiry will be sent automatically to multiple vendors– and in the location you specify.  When you check the category of the item you’re seeking (New or Used) and the appropriate subcategory, only those vendors who stock items in the subcategory you selected will receive your e-mail.  There’s no wasted effort.  Your inquiry is targeted.


You can also search manually for vendors in our directory.

Click on a category on the main page and see listings for all vendors who stock items in that category.  This is a manual search; it does not send an e-mail.  Use the contact info on the Listing Page to contact the vendor direct.  This search will display vendors worldwide, without sorting by location.  To search by location, see below.

Manually search by parts category

Or search manually by Location (Country and State or Province)

Use the SEARCH COUNTRY & STATE widget to narrow down your search to your area.  This does not send an automatic e-mail message.  It will return all merchants listed in that area.  Click on any vendor and contact them direct.  We are continually adding new listings, so you may not find a merchant near you at this time. Please check back.


You deal directly with the vendors.
Once you have contact with a vendor, either by telephone or e-mail, any relationship is strictly between you and the vendor.  If you decide to make a purchase from any vendor in our directory, you will deal directly with the vendor.  We don’t have any financial or other interest in your transaction.
