Sailing Shack

Boats, Gear, News, Links & Pics for Racing Sailors

Sailing Shack is a Classifieds and Media Business built for sailors by sailors. We want it to be the destination site for sailors who want to buy or sell new and used racing yachts, gear and clothing. It also contains information on the yacht clubs we sail from, the yachts we sail, the weather we are likely to experience and even coaches who can help us improve our skills on the water. Plus our famous Channels on Instagram (#SailingShack) and You Tube

Our point of difference is this site works! Yachts rarely last more than a few weeks and often just days and sometimes hours before they are sold. We also a personalised service around estimating what your boat is worth to handling your enquiries around ad placement, photo uploads and the like. Please call us on 1300 926 540 and ask for Leisa for all enquiries.
Remember ads up to $1,000 are FREE! and then its just two flat rates after this if you are selling over $1,000. Simple.

Sailing Shack is built to be interactive. If you want to provide information about a racing yacht,  yacht club or coaching service we don’t have then please upload it in the area provided and we will review and post it for you.

Our current race craft at Sailing Shack are a Laser, 29er, Sabre and a Peterson 30 Race Yacht. See you on the water!
