The marine and offshore online chandlery Shipserv today announced that is has launched a “deals” website, rightfully called ShipservDeals.com. The site is a first of its kind for the marine industry and allows buyers to access, and browse for, attractive promotions and best deals on maritime brands, products and services. The idea is similar to some of the group discount services you might already be using (think Groupon and LivingSocial).
So how does it work? ShipservDeals tells it best;
We work closely with the best Sellers in the market to devise attractive Deals that are offered for a short time frame period of 2-3 weeks. It is up to the Buyer to act on Deals quickly, buy and pay. Every week, ShipServ Deals will post a new Deal. The items sold may vary from introductory products, mandatory products, consumable items and a variety of different maritime services.
The first “deal” is a Motorola GP380 VHF FM radio listed at US$436, 49% off the list price.
