Sailboat Guide

Discover your dream boat


Sailboat Guide is a community-curated database that aspires to include every sailboat ever built. If it floats and has sails, we want to know about so you can know about it too.

With data on 7876 sailboats, 748 yacht builders, and 556 yacht designers going back as far as 1620, Sailboat Guide is the most open, comprehensive, and accessible database of sailboats available.


Our data is collected from a variety of public sources and contributions from our user community! We especially recognize Wikipedia.org, BlueWaterBoats.org, SailboatData.com, and ClassicSailboats.org as valuable secondary sources.

Who we are

Sailboat Guide was created by the founders of Refit Guide, a curation of techniques and gear to improve your boat. We all fell in love with sailing in Lake Michigan during our mid-30s, bought boats, and began the unending process of preparing for the next adventure…and learning about our next boat.
