Are you looking to buy a boat? Whether you want a speedboat, a houseboat, or a sailboat, you can find one for sale on Craigslist. How?

To get started, visit Select your state and nearest city. For example, this could be Florida and Daytona Beach. You are now on your city page and ready to search. On the left-hand side of the page, you will see a search box. Use this. Default search settings are already set to for sale items, so key in your phrase. To get a wide range of results, search with the phrase boat. If looking for something in particular, such as a speedboat, houseboat, or sailboat, make that your search phrase.

The beauty of owning a houseboat is the ability to move freely. Your goal may be to start out in Daytona Beach, but you don't have to stay there. In fact, that also means you don't need to buy a houseboat from the local area. As long as you are near the coast or have a trailer for towing, you are good to go. Unfortunately, it is difficult to search multiple cities on Craigslist. You can spend days or hours, as you must perform individual searches on each page. Luckily, there are free search tools that you can use to avoid the hassle.

After performing a search, you will get a list of results. These are boats for sale and more. Right now, your goal may to be to buy a boat for sale, but you will find other options too. Some individuals are willing to barter. They may trade a car, condo, or another expensive item for their houseboat. It is your decision if you want to trade or outright buy. Whatever you do, make sure you get a good deal.

As previously stated, free search tools can help you find a cheap, yet quality boat on with ease. Download the free Craigslist Reader at You can perform multi-city, statewide, or nationwide searches within seconds.
