General Search Tips
Searching For Class/Boat Names:
Search results default to alphabetical, 25 per page. Use SORT BY: to switch your results to sort by year built or LOA. Using quotes in your search ("xxxx") returns exact results.
Select REFINE SEARCH below the blue search bar to narrow down your results. Among the criteria, we offer the ability to search by beam, draft, LWL, keel and rig type as well as ratios SA/D, Disp/Len, Bal/Disp and Comfort.
Seeing Help with a small blue circle with question mark next to Sail and Rig Particulars on a sailboat record page is clickable if you would like more information on what those numbers represent. Additionally, clicking on Definitions above the Sailboat Calculations box will display information on those ratios
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.
