MDL is proud to support, Europe's fastest and most user-friendly boat sales website. Originally created in 2006 by two friends who were frustrated by the functionality of existing boats-for-sale websites, it now represents some of Europe's largest boat brokers and dealers. The website was started with a determination to become the quickest, easiest place to buy and sell boats on the Internet. To achieve this they use a mix of innovative ideas, industry knowledge, a dedicated team and passion to create the ultimate visitor experience.
