Where else to try???
This list is by no means comprehensive and if you find other suggestions by all means let me know them for inclusion here.

First and foremost, why not crib about 30 to 40 words together in say "Word" to cut and paste in to your other adverts, this saves you having to type it out each time.

To copy it in, when in Word press down "CTRL and A" together, and to insert it's "CTRL and V". Do not forget to include your unique web address in your advert.

First and foremost, you can advertise free on my own classified board which is linked from here if you wish to include a picture all you do is click on the picture you like on your advert and it will give you an address you can insert where it is requested, by example:

 http://www.boatsell.co.uk/yourboat/pic1.jpg 

Here you will have to include the full address exactly as it appears. If you place an advert, do set a password, but not the same one as you use elsewhere as if you ask me to alter it at all you will have to tell me it!


Next, a good place to try would be Apollo Duck. There are thousands of boats on there (which means you might get a bit "lost" in with a lot of others) and you can advertise for free for six months, but you have to do it all yourself and have limited space. BUT with your web address you can direct people to your much more detailed advert on here....so do not forget to include it!!

Much like Apollo Duck you could also try Boat Shop where once again you can have a small advert for free, and once again do not forget to include your web address!!

Finally in the section try Boats and Outboards, where a 28 day web advert is free, and once again do not forget to include your web address!!

Most of these adverts above are for short periods, don't forget to keep a copy of your wording and renew them after they expire.


A MUST is to advertise in Towpath Talk, a free newspaper (or you can buy a subscription and have it posted to you) where your advert is FREE! Of course there is a limit of only a few words, 45 in this case, so make sure you include your web address again!! The link takes you directly to the form to fill in.

Whilst on the subject of printed material you can also try both Waterways World and Canal Boat but these will both charge you, so make sure you get a quote first, but if you go for minimal words in the printed classifieds section (recommended) and include your boat web address at least the potential is there for a potential purchaser to see a lot more!

Also, don't forget e-bay, but there a ten day advert will cost, probably, 10 (correct 2012) with one picture, make sure you select the 10 day option as the default is 7 days, and the price is the same!


A slightly more obtuse one. In West London there is Uxbridge Boat Centre, its a very busy yard used by hundreds of local boaters every day. Right outside their door is a "Newsagents Cards" type board where you can advertise up to A4 for six pounds a month. You have to do the donkey work and let your artistic juices flow, then pop it in an envelope with some cash to UBC, Uxbridge Wharf, Waterloo Road, Uxbridge, London, UB8 2QX.

There are a lot of boat dwellers in this area, if your boat is aimed at the residential market this option is strongly recommended.


The secret with all the free adverts is to keep renewing them, so make a note in your diary when they expire. It is a pain, but if you want to avoid having to pay brokerage fees of ,000's you have to go that extra mile!

Remember USE YOUR WEB ADDRESS off this web site.

Good Luck!
