    I've used boatsandoutboards.co.uk and sold two boats like that but not for a few years. I did put a lot of effort into the advert, lots of photos, boat clean & tidy, no personal items left on board, very accurate description as well as any poor points. Be very honest. Good luck.

    Tell your chum to get his boat as shiny as possible, then take her to a local quay popular with the public, with a big ' For Sale ' sign in the shrouds - it must include a phone number, if possible landline if not the mobile, as a lot of people will take note and ponder rather than stroll up on the day.

    I agree it has to be in spring-time, would be hopeless now in the financial run up to Christmas, so your chum is stuck with winter fees.

    E-Bay is worth a go as long as you set the parameters right, a friend of mine is a dreamer/ successful artist - one night after sharing a bottle of good wine he bidded on a 24' yacht as it seemed a romantic idea, he'd never been on a sailing boat in his life - much to his surprise he got the boat, which came in jolly handy as a place to stay in a marina during his divorce.

    +1 for Apolloduck.
    You say that the boat is basically sound and only in need of cosmetic improvement, your friend could perhaps do a bit of work in that area over the winter and make her attractive to someone who just wants to sail and is not concerned having perfection.
