I put this list together over time, I buy and sell sailboats for a hobby, I'm a sailing instructor, not a boat dealer. But I enjoy buying a boat and sailing it for a while, maybe fixing it up, and then when I know about that one I want to sell it and get a different one. Every sailboat seems to have it's good points and bad, but they are all fun!
Many boat models or makes have websites, many of them have a classified section for owners of those boats to use. This is a collection of sailing websites that specialize in a particular make or model, or tend to have a lot of one make sailboat, AND have a classified section.
Some of the links go directly to the sailboat classified section of that site. Some do not. If they don't, select the appropriate menu item which I usually noted to the right of the website's name. Alphabetical order of course, with numbers first. If you know of a good site for this list please Email me at email@example.com so I can add it here.
