Yes, but their listings are often stale and their database is small. You can accomplish the same thing on Yachtworld using keyword searches.
The problem with Yachtworld is that 99.99% of the boats are broker listed. The brokers have access to ad creation functionality on the Yachtworld site that boat owners do not have. If a seller wants to avoid the broker's commission, he probably has to advertise elsewhere. I'm not sure how best to tap this "hidden market," but you do see ads in Good Old Boat, Spinsheet and similar publications. You can also find boats listed for sale
on various yacht club websites.
