About us

SAILBOATDATA.COM is a database that contains information on over 9000 production and semi-production sailboats dating back to the late 1800’s. A majority include photos and or drawings from a library of original plans and brochures. Others have been contributed by users (only when we can be sure about a reasonable degree of accuracy).

Also included is information on the designer(s), original builder(s) and links to related websites with a number of search options.

Access to this information is COMPLETELY FREE, and no registration of any kind is required to use the service. Should you wish to contribute any new information, report errors, or make any type of comment please contact us at “contact [at] sailboatdata [dot] com” (We will never reveal any information supplied without your permission).

We hope you find this service useful and, once again, we encourage your comments.

Stuart Randall “Randy” Browning, creator of Sailboatdata.com.

Randy’s passion was sailing. He was a skilled sailmaker who worked in several top lofts including Horizon Sails and Ulmer-Kolius before opening his own Sono Sails in South Norwalk, CT (USA). He loved racing and competed nationally in boats ranging from Lightnings to his Judel/Vrolijk designed sloop.

This passion led him to create SAILBOATDATA.COM in 2003 when he began building the database by hand, one boat at a time. His vision created what has become the largest repository of specifications for production and semi-production sailboats in the world. A vision that is carried on today.
