Classifieds Posting Guidelines | READ

Classifieds Posting Guidelines

Our classifieds system is offered as a benefit of membership and no commercial sales are permitted. Here are some basic guidelines...
  1. We expect ads placed to be related to the topic of this forum. Ads that are not active for 60 days will be moved to the classifieds archive however may be relisted if still available.
  2. Do not hijack another member's ad. For example, if a member has posted an ad offering a spinnaker for sale, don't add a post to his thread stating that you have a spinnaker you'd like to get rid of also or to offer unsolicited commentary.
  3. For your own security, do NOT include your e-mail or phone number in your ad. Instead request that interested parties contact you via PM (private message).

All For Sale ads | You must be the owner of the boat or item
  • ALL Ads MUST include asking price and location in the body of the ad post
  • Don't post links to commercial sites where you are also offering the boat, such as eBay or Craigslist or Yachtworld etc. You may, however, link to a non-commercial webpage - such as a personal blog - if it contains a more in-depth description, additional information or pictures.
  • Place only one ad per item (you may repost only when your ad has been archived)
  • Ads may be removed by our staff at any time for any reason.
  • If your item has been sold, please post an update to your thread.
  • Don't forget to select: FOR SALE, WANTED or FREE in the Title block.

Your ad should include ALL of the following:
  • Price (in the advert title or main body of text)
  • Location
  • Detailed description
  • Pertinent maintenance and condition information
  • Exterior picture or pictures
  • Interior picture or pictures

In case you are unfamiliar as to how to post pictures, here is the tutorial:

All ads must comply with site rules. For reference, they are here:All Site Rules
Thanks for your cooperation.


Avoid fraud. Be aware that there are unscrupulous folks out there. Avoid any interaction that seems odd to you or ‘feels’ wrong. Inquiries from unknown buyers, buyers ‘agents’ and other non-traditional approaches should be treated with extreme caution.

Beware of unsolicited contacts offering to put you in touch with someone who is buying or selling via e-mail.

Do not post your e-mail address or phone number in a classifieds ad.

Hints that you may be dealing with a Scammer:
  • Seller approached you via a direct email rather than posting an ad.
  • No posts or very few forum posts.
  • Recent forum membership
  • Insists on conducting negotiations via email rather than PM
  • Requires payment via Bank Transfer, BitCoin/CryptoCurrency, WesternUnion.
  • Declines to allow viewing the item before proceeding with transaction. Location is required info in ads.
