Sailboat Search and Compare Tool

I built a website to find and compare sailboats. I use it personally, but thought I would share it with the wider community:

It's based on data scraped from and has features similar to Boat Dimensions and Sail Calculator Pro v3.54 - 2800+ boats

The "similar sailboats" feature is under development, so the recommendations aren't perfect (currently based on LOA and SA/Disp only) and will change over time.

Let me know if you like it, hate it, or if I should add any features.

Re: Sailboat Search and Compare Tool

Since you asked...

I think the first page is a little confusing. It says "search for sailboats," but it doesn't give you any indication what sort of criteria you can search on. Once you search, then the "advanced search" button appears and you can go there and see all the criteria. "Advanced search" or something like it should be on the first page.

Then, here in Florida (and in the Bahamas), the draft of your boat can be a major limiting factor. It would be really nice if one of the criteria for an advanced search was minimum draft of the vessel.

So, a few minor nit-picks, but all in all, I like the idea. Good luck.
