Craigslist recently added a "Boats by Dealer" category to its site.

Although a section on Craigslist for "Boats" previously existed, many dealers had their ads flagged or received e-mails from Craigslist users who believed that only private sellers should post items for sale on the popular website.

Although the new "Boats by Dealer" category can't guarantee that dealer ads won't be flagged in the future, it should alleviate many of the frustrations dealers have experienced, according to Nucleus, a data distribution service that helps dealers post inventory on Craigslist.

"We're glad that Craigslist finally added the `Boats by Dealer' category," Nucleus general manager Evan Davis said in a statement. "We believe this enhancement will reinvigorate the dealer's use of Craigslist as a valuable tool in their marketing efforts."
