Seattle, WA--January 20, 1998--YachtWorld.com, the Internet's largest marine Web site and photo library of boats for sale, announced today that its listing database is being included in Yahoo! Classifieds, http://classifieds.yahoo.com.

Yahoo! is one of the most visible and recognizable names associated with the Internet and provides millions of Internet visitors with a navigational guide to content, communication, community and commerce on the Web. YachtWorld.com is published by the Cobalt Group, Inc.

"YachtWorld.com's database contains photo listings of over 5,000 boats for sale on the Internet, which are now available to Yahoo!'s 26 million unique, U.S. adult users daily," said Jessica Muffett, Publisher of YachtWorld.com. "Brokers use our yacht broker tool, BoatWizard´┐Ż, to update their own listings online, a factor that keeps listings fresh and provides users with the most up-to-date information available," said Muffett.

"Yahoo! Classifieds continues to team up with leading content providers to bring our users a comprehensive source for classifieds listings," said Susan Carls, producer of Yahoo! Classifieds. "Working with YachtWorld provides us with an extensive source of up-to-date listings for individuals looking to buy or sell boats."

The successful growth of YachtWorld.com is due to the fact that yacht brokers who advertise their boats in YachtWorld.com are selling boats to YachtWorld's 40,000 monthly qualified visitors.

"One broker in Port Orchard, Washington has sold 50 boats to YachtWorld buyers over the past two years," said Muffett. "Now, with the additional Yahoo! Classifieds traffic, YachtWorld.com boat listings will be viewed by even more visitors who search for boats online."

YachtWorld.com was founded in 1995 and over 220 yacht brokers, boat dealers and boat manufacturers display their boats in YachtWorld's boats for sale database.
