re: How to sell a 32 foot Downeast sailboat
I'd try your various local Craigslists/Kijiji for starters. Be prepared to be disappointed in what boats are going for these days. You also need to decide how quick a sale you need. A low asking price will hasten most deals, esp relative to other similar models in the area.
Don't forget to factor in the ongoing costs of moorage and upkeep as you hold out for a better deal vs the hit you'd take selling sooner.
Generally if you can offer/transfer the boat's moorage the odds on a quicker sale go up in a hurry, at least up here where moorage is very tight.
