Putting the ad up for 6 months is Au$200. That covers the web guys time putting it up. You or we provide digital pix. if we do we charge another flat rate of $50.00. If we need to scan your pix from negatives or paper photographs, we charge an additional fee of $50 for up to ten photographs.
If your boat sells for over 40,000 as a result of our direction, then there would be a 7.5% commission. More time goes into this stuff than you might imagine.
If it sells for less than that, as a result of our direction, it would be a 10% commission. Thats because it takes the same time to convince people for less return!!
You also supply an inventory list and condition statement, as well as anecdotes around the life of the boat. Pictures with people, especially families in them are good.
We will never 'hype' the boat in order to get a sale.
If we think its crappy, or wildly over priced we will say so, but we will also suggest ways that it may be rectified, if we believe it can be.

Superbly built by her owners, Tony and Yvonne, this fabulous looking 8m Norwalk Islands Sharpie has alloy spun tapered masts, the ultra easy StrayDog Boatworks mast folding tabernacles, miles of equipment, a Premier trailer, and much more. A Nissan patrol tow vehicle walk on mooring may be available as a package
‘Little Jimmy’ has sailed extensively in the South Australian Gulfs, including some quite exciting trips to Kangaroo Island with four on board.
Her Cove Green hull, teak bright work and tan sails set her aprt wherever she sails.
‘Olive’ is a deep keeled, classically beautiful traditionally constructed carvel cruising yacht.
She has been superbly restored and extensively cruised in south Australian waters by her owners.
‘Olive’, originally ‘Geara’ was built in 1948 on the thames near London. She seems to have sailed to Australia in the 1960’s. ‘Olive’s’ charmed existence has been enhanced by the Jenkins’ family restoration, extensive sailing and cruising experience over the past decade.
In their ownership Olive has been seen around kangaroo Island, Port Lincoln, the Sir Joseph Banks Group and beyond. Mrs Jenkins puts it so well. ‘Olive’ isn’t ‘posh’. But, she IS very comfortable.’
This handsome, well maintained boat is powered by a 3 cylinder , 30 hp diesel, more than adequate for her needs. Olive has a sweeping sheer that will improve the scenery anywhere shee finds herself.
She is ready to cruise, now.
She has proven herself a a very competent, comfortable and dry seaboat for two, living aboard for months at a time. She can take more crew of course on shorter voyages.
John’s stunningly built ‘Liverpool Pine’ (er, steel) Junk rigged Boden designed sailing home on water is for reluctant sale.
John built this round bilged, very easily handled, safe ketch with the intention of leisurely circumnavigation of Australia, and beyond.
Supplementing ‘Raphaella’s’ big carbon sparred junk rig, is a 4 cylinder 35 hp Nanni Diesel, ample to her needs.. She has refrigeration, very comfortable appointments, including a proper shower, centre cockpit, sunshades, and masses of equipment.
‘Karma2’ is an NZ built (Compass Yachts) fibre glass cutter interpretation of the famed Herreshoff H28, slightly stretched and enlarged to 9M. Full headroom throughout a spacious interior set up. In her owner John’s 15 year custodianship of Karma 2 he has probably won more club harbour and open water events than any other yacht in the fleet at the p[ort Adelaide Sailing Club.
‘Karma2’ is in very sound condition, and comes with a long list of good gear.
Teak trim throughout. Need s new owner to take her to new horizons and great family experiences.
‘Malisma’ is located at Dora creek on Lake Macquarie, NSW.
‘Malisma’ may be one of the best know Norwalk islands Sharpies in Australia.
Her owner pioneered the use of our tabernacle mast raising system, carbon masts, retractable dagger rudder set up and much more. She bristles with the best ‘stuff’.
He has been owned and sailed by Angus Houstone for the past 15 years or so, and is only up for sale because Angus is having a bit of trouble with mobility, ie crook legs. Its maybe time for him to swallow at least one of his anchors.
