Q. If I will buy 20 boats, where can I sell them?
A. There is two options to re-sell inflatable boats, via Internet or locally in your area. If you already have commercial web site with a customer base, then inflatable boats will greatly improve your merchandise variety. For example if you sell RVs or sailboats/yachts, or camping equipment, or kayaks/rafting on-line, then your customer most likely would be interested in a boats too. However if you are new to Internet commerce, then it is a long way to go before you will start selling boats on-line. Selling on-line does require a lot of efforts in terms of advertisement and Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Just starting a web site is far from enough to make a real profit.
On another hand, selling in your local marketplace would be the best options. If you live in area close to major water attractions or boating activities, then most likely that your potential customer are all around your area. For example if you live by the large lake with campgrounds, or river with fishing, then inflatable boats would be a hot commodity. If white-water rivers are close to your area, then whitewater rafts are in high demand and Saturn rafts are the best rafts around to generate quick profit. If you already have a retail store that offer any equipment related to outdoor activities, as RVs, camping gear, kayaks, rafting, fishing, tackle, etc, then inflatable boats and rafts are sure a great way to generate extra profit with a minimum investments and risks.

A. Saturn Inflatables is active EBay Seller, and due to conflict of interest, we do not recommend re-selling of Saturn boats on EBay. Excessive availability of boats at Ebay auctions will drive prices down. However it is up to you where to sell boats.
