    Nope. Swordfish are the one and only members of the Xiphiidae family while sailfish are part of the Istiophoridae family which includes marlins, billfish, and spearfish.

    The swordfish and sailfish do belong the the same “order” of perciformes, however. The order of Perciformes contains 40% of all bony fish species, and contains 150 families and 7000 species of “perch-like fish,” characterized by their spiny dorsal, anal, and pelvic fins, among various other technical features.
