Check Out the Great Boats in Latitude’s Classy Classifieds

Ever wonder what it would be like to shelter in place on the water? Oh, to be able to stick your head out of the salon, to see the cool morning light shine upon the water, and to smell the salty sea air and coffee brewing… We’ve heard from a couple of people about how the familiar sounds and smells of their beloved vessels, along with the delight of gentle rocking that comes from being afloat, can soothe some rough edges and bring presence and gratitude for what there is right now.

Looking to sell your boat?

You can list your sailboat for sale easily online. We’ve had many satisfied Classy Classified sellers with great success stories. Here are a couple of them:

“Classic wooden boats like classic art is a category of limited – but passionate – appeal. I advertised mine through an international broker who exposed her world-wide, had several keen responses including two from Europe and one who travelled from Australia, but after three years no buyer. I placed my ad in Latitude 38 less than a year ago and in months had found the right person to take stewardship of this fine boat. I finished building my new, smaller wooden craft last year and thanks to your wide West Coast reach am now sailing again AND have a good home for my faithful vessel after a quarter of a century ownership. All parties have reason to thank you, L38.” — Los Angeles, CA

“Please cancel my ad in Latitude 38 for my 1978 Islander 36. FYI, the day the ad hit the internet (two weeks before the print issue came out), I got a call from a buyer. I showed them the boat the next day. The following day they made an offer, and the sale closed last Wednesday. Thanks!”­ — Alameda, CA

The deadline for paid classy ads in the May issue of Latitude 38 is Wednesday, April 15, at 5 p.m. Pacific Time. Ads go online within three business days.

The word 'yacht' has always bothered me. It’s simply too pretentious for my taste. When I go sailing, I don’t go to the yacht, I go to the boat, and there is a distinct difference.
