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 firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add it here.
One site that defies placing in any make or model is Duckworks, the online magazine for amateur boat builders. See their Duckworks Classifieds to see what kind of boats are for sale.
