Which portal best to market sailboat to Americans?

An unplanned brush with the big"C" has brought my years of active yacht ownership to a halt. As a result I now have my cherished Sabre 426 up for sale in Greece. We have listings on the obvious portals like Yachtworld , Apolloduck and Facebook. Given that there must be a number of Americans planning to come and invest their strong US dollars in weakened Euro denominated yachts in Europe, can any US Forum users tell me which portals if any are much used by Americans? (This Cruisers Forum obviously, I will put something up later today!)
Any other recommendations?

Sorry to read of your big C.

There is a Sabre owners' forum as so: https://groups.io/g/SabreSailboat

There is also a Sabre Facebook page.

Ideally, your boat would be here on the other side of the pond...

Thanks Sailor sailor. Of course the really ideal thing would be for some of you guys to cross the pond and have the best of both worlds - fantastic Mediterranean sailing in a lovely "crafted in Maine" yacht!

No, the best thing would be for the big C to go in remission.

Hope your sale goes smoothly, mate, sorry for the hand you've got to play now.

Re: Which portal best to market sailboat to Americans?

First:
give it hell please

Second:
Sailboatlistings.com is a global for sale by owner site, I use it as a resource regularly. I have bought two (28 ft Beneteau, Jeanneau SO 44i, and sold one (the Benie) on this site.

The interest is seasonal but if time is of the essence sell it cheap.

Have your boat cleaned take pictures list it on line it’s that simple.
The cleaner, the cheaper, the faster it sells

I wish you well
