Looking for a particular sailboat and can't find one? Please Email Alison at davidluc@earthlink.net and I will post your Sailboat Wanted ad ON THIS PAGE.
Information needed: Size/age of boat/make or model preferred and your contact details.

Ads will run for 1 year.

Alison,

Thanks to the advertisement on sailingtexas.com I am now the proud new owner of a Holder 20. When I first started looking for a Holder 20 there were none advertised. After I ran my add on sailingtexas.com I was quickly contacted about four different boats either directly by the owner or by someone in the same club or neighborhood as the boat in question. I selected a boat that fit my needs and budget and was being sold by a loving owner who had grown too old to sail her. He is thrilled to see his boat go to a family that will enjoy her and part of his modest asking price was pictures of the boat in its new home.

I can't thank you enough for your website and will definitely be checking the boats wanted ads when I see a unique or special sailboat for sale in my neck of the woods.
