This site is constantly changing in an ongoing effort to bring you as
much information as possible on sail boat manufacturers. Everyone knows
how many sites there are for power boats but they sure don't help the
serious sailor much! Whether you are looking for information on cat boats,
catamarans, cutters, daysailers, ketches, multi hulls, sailing yachts,
scows, schooners, sloops, trimarans, or yawls, we'll try and point you to
information of value.
As always, this information changes as manufacturers come and go.
Nevertheless, we strive to keep it up-to-date and have the best listing
around. So, if you come up with anything new that we don't have yet
then please let us know.

Sail Boat Prices
Prices seem to be another big issue as there is a lot of buying and

possibility of causing great damage and irreparable harm. If you don't
believe me then ask a boat salvage yard or a salvor like Sea Tow. If
you are out of your knowledge level on a purchase then get expertise
from a surveyor, dealer, or broker. Back to prices....check the NADA
guide, other blue books, and classifieds sites to get a good price
range. Some blue books are online while you may end up checking at your
bank or credit union as well.
Selling and Moving Up
Sailors commonly sell their smaller vessels and progressively move to larger ones. If
you find yourself in this situation then we recommend that you sell your
craft on the high-traffic iboats classifieds. Less time inbetween vessels means more sailing!
