Nowadays many boats are sold through the various self-marketing sites like Craigslists and Kijiji, esp at the lower end of the market.

But not through sneaky 'where can a post this ad?' posts...

If the boat qualifies as a version of yacht, you will sell it faster via a broker. You can try CL, eBay (usually the step before the boat goes to Boat Angel), sailboatlistings.com, but you will sell it by a broker. Same thing is true for selling a house.

Certified...in several regards...

You came to the right place to get a good answer. What kind of sailboat are you selling? It matters.

And where is it?

Re: where can i sell my sailboat?

You ARE brand new, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. I just went to your site and searched for "sailboat" and "Catalina" and got zero hits in both attempts.

Good luck with your new venture....But, Yachtworld and Craigslist started at the same place.

Link to commercial site removed.
