How to sell my sailboat

I have reluctantly decided to sell my sailboat. Besides the local classified section, which does not work very well, what would you folks suggest? It is a 25'' sloop. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thanks

If you go thru a broker, they will take 10%.
I sold my sailboat recently using BoatSearch here on SailNet. Its a free service, so you can afford to put a lower price on the boat and it will sell quicker. You can put up to 4 or 6 photos on the ad.
Another site to try that I think charges a small fee is www.boats.com
Again you can have pictures of the boat on the ad.
If this does not work, you are probably stuck using a broker if you are in a hurry. Good Luck.

I have a 1981 25'' O''Day sloop and have been very happy with her, a lot of boat for pretty modest price. This boat is for sale only because I''m foolish and want an Island Packet. Would be happy to talk about this boat specifically or answer any ?s that I can. Good luck in your search. Bruce

I agree, wanting an Island Packet is foolish! Especially when you have a nice sailing boat like the Oday 25.

Do I detect a note of sarcasm? Tell us how you really feel, don''t sugar coat your response.

Just a friendly poke in the ribs with the business end of a boat hook to get your attention. I guarantee it won''t leave a permanent mark!
