General Search Tips

Searching For Class/Boat Names:

We are very excited to announce we have launched our new, updated, user friendly search. We believe it will make time on the site much more enjoyable.

Search results default to alphabetical, 25 per page. Use SORT BY: to switch your results to sort by year built or LOA.

Refine Search

Refine Search is your friend. Select REFINE SEARCH to narrow down your results. We offer the ability to search by more criteria like beam, draft, and ratios SA/D, Disp/Len, Bal/Disp and Comfort.

Additional Help

The small blue circles with question marks on all sailboat record pages are clickable if you would like more information on what those numbers represent.

Builder List Search:

One could also go to the BUILDER search section and find, for example, Pearson Yachts. All the boats built by Pearson should be listed within that title. The link to these yachts would also show up by browsing or searching the designer section by ALBERG and go to the listing for Carl Alberg.

Designer List Search:

Designers are listed by name OR, in some cases, a design FIRM name. (Sparkman & Stephens). By entering the letter S in the text form, results will show all designers with a FIRST name beginning with S, or firm names beginning with S. To see a list of designers with a last name beginning with S, select refine search and select S where indicated. Once you select a DESIGNER record, you will see all BOAT records in the database for that particular designer. (if any exist). Not ALL BOAT records are linked to a particular designer.
