PLEASE READ FIRST …
The UK Wayfarer Association welcomes adverts for Wayfarers and/or Wayfarer items ONLY, both Wanted and For Sale. Advertising is free of charge for UKWA members.
We are pleased to run Wayfarer-related adverts for non UKWA members, but there is a £25 charge for doing so. If you are a non UKWA member and wish to advertise, please contact Sarah Burgess; firstname.lastname@example.org ...read more
Adverts for boats only are automatically included in our full colour magazine, Wayfarer News, at the time each edition is about to go to print.
Adverts are clear to run for up to 12 months, when they will be automatically deleted. (If still for sale, items/boats can always be re-advertised by the owner). We do ask that adverts are removed as soon as boats/items are sold, to keep the list as up-to-date as possible.
To avoid frustration, before uploading any photos please note the following requirements:-
- Up to four images may be uploaded per advert
- Each image file should be at least 50 KB but not more than 1 MB
- Each image should be at least 640 pixels (width) by 480 pixels (height). Larger photos will automatically be resized to be within these dimensions. Note that this is a 4:3 aspect ratio (landscape), so shoot with this in mind for best results.
We are currently reviewing these requirements – please contact the web team if you wish to express an opinion.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT IDENTIFYING BOATS – All Wayfarers should have their boat number recorded on their hull. This is how a boat is identified. The number is either carved on the inside of the upstand of the transom (wooden boats) or on a metal plaque (usually, but not always, fixed to the aft slope of the centreboard case). This number should correspond to the number on the sails, but, if the numbers differ, it is the number on the boat which is the boat’s official number. A boat without a plaque/carved number may not officially be raced as a Wayfarer. Potential purchasers should be aware (of wooden hulled boats in particular) of the fact that not all boats have been measured in the past; some hulls that have been measured may have been altered and therefore may need to be re-measured and any alterations might need to be corrected. Boats are not permitted to race without a Measurement and Buoyancy Certificate (except in certain limited cases).
If you are not a member and wish to advertise your Wayfarer on this list, please contact the Association Secretary, Sarah Burgess.
Further Wayfarers for purchase may be available from Ian Porter at email@example.com
Please add WANTED or FOR SALE before the title for each item.
*** Please be aware of scams. These are widespread and not specific to Wayfarers or our website. They are not all the same – please be aware ***
A partial list of known or likely scammers can be found on this page (link opens in new tab).
We have recently been made aware of one vendor’s experience:
‘When the advert first appeared (on another website advertising boats) I received a phone call purporting to be from Boat Mart offering to include an advertisement at a reduced price. The caller clearly knew about dinghies, the Wayfarer in particular, and was very plausible on sailing matters. An online order was placed using my debit card in the usual way. Shortly after this I received a text from my bank, the Halifax, asking if I had authorised a payment to Western Union of £540.40. This attempted fraud was nipped in the bud and did not take place, but you may wish to be aware.
There were a number of other attempted ‘scams’ related to the sale but in each case when I entered the email address on Google there were a number of people warning about the said email addresses. I mention this in passing as you may well be aware of the situation.’
