Most "for sale" sites let you sort through boats by length, price, & year. But searching with only those variables creates a LOT of wasted time looking at boats that don't match what you're really looking for.

Are there any sites with sailboat databases out there that give you (in addition to the search items above), search parameters like:

Keel Type (Fin, Wing, Bulb, Swing, Shoal draft, etc)
Rudder Type (Spade, Skeg hung, etc)
Rigging Type (Mast Head, Fractional, etc)
Drive Type (Wheel, Tiller)
SA/D Ratio

I'm pouring through reams of material from this site and others that provide independent reviews, along with a LOT of time being spent looking through yachtworld and other sales sites reading the specs of one boat at a time. So I'm getting smarter...

But the sheer volume of information on so many different boat builders, models, and year to year model differences is a little overwhelming.

As to the broker suggestion... I'm a little wary of asking for buying advice (be it for a car, house, boat, or anything else), from someone who's ultimate goal is to get a sales commission out of me. I'd rather make my model, year, and size choice based on my own research and advice from experienced sailors who have no vested interest in which boat I pick.
