Botenbank.nl has been the platform for motor and sailing yachts in the higher segment since 1984. On average Botenbank has more than 50,000 visitors per month. No less than 33% of this comes from abroad. Mainly from Germany, Belgium and Denmark. Botenbank.nl thus has both national coverage and a large international network. In 2020, Botenbank.nl was acquired by Boats Group, the leading group in the online sale of recreational boats, from Arimpex Media Services.
In 2010, boats.com, YachtWorld and Boat Trader joined forces as the three leading marine websites to form Boats Group (then operated as Dominion Marine Media). In July 2016, Boats Group was acquired by Apax Partners and then by Permira Funds in February 2021. Boats Group's brands - Boat Trader, YachtWorld, boats.com, iNautia, Cosas De Barcos, Botentekoop, Annonces du Bateau, Boats and Outboards, and Boatshop24 - are the world’s leading online boating marketplaces, connecting the largest global audience of boat buyers with top sellers and manufacturers. For nearly three decades, Boats Group has helped its industry partners sell more boats faster and provided unmatched support with a comprehensive suite of online business solutions, including proprietary web-based contract management tools, and premier digital marketing strategies and services. Owned by the Permira Funds, Boats Group is based in Miami, Florida, United States with co-headquarters in Fareham, England, and additional offices in Padova, Italy and Barcelona, Spain.
