Help with searching Craigslist for a boat

We are looking for a boat to begin our great adventure. How do you search Craigslist without identifying a specific area? Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: Help with searching Craigslist for a boat

There are a few search engines which will allow you to search all Craigslists, as well as some other sites, all at the same time. Though some of the old favorites have (sadly) been wiped out of existence. The folks that run Craigslist frowned upon them for reasons of fiscal self interest.

On Google. You can try; Brand name of sailboat, example, Catalina. On Craigslist. You will get info, but not all. Or example, 30 ft sailboat on Craigslist.

Re: Help with searching Craigslist for a boat

Use the Google Search Operator called "site:"

The search line would be something like this:

sailboat site:craigslist.org

Re: Help with searching Craigslist for a boat

Searchtempest is good but Google has forced them to alter their search method.

You can search:
Sailboat site:Craigslist.org
Then use tools to look at posts for the last month

Use yachtworld.com and work with a buyers broker. You'll save yourself a boatload of trouble.

Agree with kenomac. Craigslist and eBay are full of junk. Yes there are exceptions. Sailboat listings is better too.

What is more hilarious is that they end up with 99.7% positive rating. Where were those buyers when I needed them?

Plenty of good buys on C-List and EBay. Ya gotta do the legwork though.

Kissin' frogs is part of the charm.
