You are right the only way to search sailboatlistings.com is by clicking on a brand name at the top of their page.

Stil it is probably the best side for owner listed sailboats better than craigslist or sailingtexas

He sent me an e-mail link to a very well used Catalina 38. Boat was way over priced. Wonder why. I have not herd a word from him in 6 weeks. I will find a boat on my own dime. The point of this thread is, Im walking an e-net boat dock here meeting folks.
FWIW, finding a good broker might pay off handsomely. I met four who were almost mediocre(instead of utterly terrible) and one who was fantastic, with 5 or 10 page detailed sheets of each boat, down to what needed doing and the approx costs he estimated to do them(Which he could have taken care of at the listed price too for you IIRC).
Every boat was clean, ready to sell. Modern if not brand new components etc.
Hindsight is 20/20, until I met him I couldn't figure out why I was talking to brokers at all.

In hindsight I sure wish I'd gone through him as a buyer's broker(which he would do as well).

Re: SailBoats for Sale buy OWNER........

Summer is almost here in SanDiego. Still walking the docks. We have more than enough cash for a good boat and are still short for a great boat. Most likely going to bare boat again this summer and keep putting money away. Good things come to those that wait

Re: SailBoats for Sale buy OWNER........

What are you looking for? I looked at a NEW Beneteau First 30 in San Diego for just over 100K and some change....He had many used boats as well...Was VERY nice to deal with. 100k buys a lot right now...so maybe if you said what you were looking for...maybe some here could point you in the right direction...

Re: SailBoats for Sale buy OWNER........

sometimes it depends on what type of boat you're looking for as to where it might be posted. I was interested in a couple models of boats and joined their owners associations to research more info. I ended up getting my boat from someone on the owners group for Nor'sea 27s and it never got listed on the common boat sales sites. I was also interested in Cape Dory's

Good luck in your search.

Have you looked at Yachtworld? As everyone here has told you, the majority of boats in your size and price range are going to be with a broker and again , in this size and price, Yachtworld will be where most are listed. Find some boats that strike your interest and suck it up and call the listing broker.
