What is the story on websites for buying a boat

This is what I think I know.

New and Used Yachts for Sale -
All the brokers list their boats here. Not going to find many deals but the place to find a boat and get a good idea of what the going price is.

craigslist classifieds: jobs, housing, personals, for sale, services, community, events, forums
The junk boats, small boats sold by owner the brokers will not touch.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices
Most of the more expensive boats will be cross listed on yachtworld the boatAngel (almost free boats) will be here along with folks who for some reason need to sell fast.

Is this about right?
What sites do you like and why.
I've read the advise on how to get a good deal but what about from a website point of view.
Where do I look to buy low and where do I look to sell high?
