Here's How to List your Boat for Sale

First though, a few selling tips to make your advertisement eye-catching to potential buyers...

  • Good pics of your boat are essential! Exterior and interior, afloat and ashore. There's no limit on the number of good pics.
  • Give a full description of your boat and tell us what type of construction she is. Fibreglass, wood, ferro-cement, steel or aluminium? Teak decks? How many berths? Engine make and horsepower? etc, etc
  • Describe her condition and explain how you've updated and maintained her over the years. 
  • Detail exactly what is included in the sale, together with an inventory of electronics, sails and other equipment. Dinghy and outboard? Life raft etc?
  • Her vital statistics; Length overall, beam, draft and displacement.
  • Where is she currently berthed? 
  • and of course, your asking price!

There's no limit on space! You can put as much as you like in your advertisement. The more detailed your description, the more your potential buyers will be drawn into your advertisement. 

If you follow the above selling tips you should have no difficulty at all in writing at least 400 words to describe your boat.

In fact, 400 words is a minimum requirement for publication on sailboat-cruising.com.

Don't waste this opportunity by submitting a 'skinny' ad for publication.

Just send me an email with the text for your ad (either within the email or as an attachment) together with as many pics as you like, and I'll create the ad using your provided information and let you know when it's been published on my site, usually just a few days later.

If you want me to change anything at any time, it's no problem!

So, let's get your sailboat sold!
