Hi. I need a listing of the makes and models of boats that have been
sold in the United States since 1985. The listing should be broken
into 1) Powerboats & Motorboats, 2) Sailboats, and 3) Small boats
(like kayaks or canoes). Many of the models will have 5 or more
entries, with only the number (usually the length) being different. I
would like the make and model name with and without the corresponding
numbers. This listing needs to be in a simple text format, with one
model per line with a hard return, as follows:
Maunfacturer Model (no comma)
Boston Whaler Outrage
Boston Whaler 190 Outrage
Boston Whaler 210 Outrage
Boston Whaler 240 Outrage
Boston Whaler 320 Outrage
Boston Whaler 320 Cuddy Outrage
I prefer that the file be posted on a website, and made downloadable via a link,
rather than be posted here.

I did a bit of looking around on this one, and it turns out there are
more than 5,000 manufacturers alone.
I'd guess there are in the neighborhood of 50-100,000 types of boats,
and upwards of a million once you start throwing in variations on
I doubt that this question is answerable as it is currently asked.
And frankly, I don't have a suggestion for how you might re-craft it.
The only list that seems available is a list of the 5,000+
manufacturers, OR a list of the makes/models from a single
Let me know what you think,
