This is a collection of online sailboat classifieds in Texas. Above you will also see Sailboat Classifieds by State, that's for states other than Texas. Also see Classifieds by Make-Model, each list has different entries. Be sure to visit Sailing Texas Classifieds, always current and not all the boats are in Texas
If you contact a sailboat owner, please mention that they can have a free online sailboat ad here at Sailing Texas!
Clicking on a website below will open a new window at that site, close that window to return here. Most of the links go directly to the sailboat classified section of that site. Some do not allow this, but I get you as close as I can. You just need to select the appropriate menu item which I noted to the right of their name. Many of these sites will let you post a free sailboat ad, although not the newspapers of course. The brokers deal mainly with larger, more expensive boats, but not always.
