Due to popular request we now offer this page for those who want to buy and sell their multihull. This web site is seen by thousands of people every month who are specifically interested in sailing catamarans, so it makes sense to advertise here and reach serious potential buyers.

A quote from someone who listed their boat with me: "He paid the price I was asking which I'm pleased about. I only had the boat advertised on your site and was getting an average of about one email a week. I originally thought it could take 2years to sell, what with the economic climate and all. Also it is an unusual boat but it does attract a lot of attention."

"These adverts clearly get viewed by enthusiasts. We needed a quick sale and this advert generated interest from 3 parties in the first week. John (Belfast)"

Woods Gypsy for sale. 40000 euros

Due to Brexit, Covid, and ill health I am forced to consider selling Water Music this summer (2021).

Launched in 2006, she has been sailed exclusively in Dutch inland waterways and inshore coastal waters. She has been used for extended summer live-aboard cruising, and wintered ashore every year.

Water Music is well know on Woods and other forums and I have many videos on my Youtube Channel

If the link does not work, search for "Water Music sailing" on youtube.

The boat is constructed in fibreglass/foam sandwich for the hull panels, and marine ply/glass/epoxy for everything else. The boat has a full cruising inventory, and is well maintained. She is currently stored ashore in Holland and I am hoping to get out to Holland in early July to have a short (2 months) summer cruise. But I live in Cyprus, and Covid makes any travel plans extremely uncertain.

Brief inventory:

Fully battened Mainsail, Furling Jib, spare jib, spinnaker, large light-wind genoa (screecher) on its own furling system. All sails are top class and in excellent condition. The screecher has been used for one season only.

Carbon fibre bowsprit and carbon fibre whisker pole.

Yamaha 9.9 outboard - excellent condition - about 100 hours.

Rocna bow anchor with chain and warp, Fortress spare anchor.

All running and standing rigging in good condition.

Advance Sea Chart plotter, Icom VHF, AIS receiver.

Full live-aboard inventory (too much to list) - four/five berth - all cooking utensils - Origo two-burner alcohol stove - two porta potti chemical toilets (one in each hull) - many spares - more than sufficient dock lines and fenders - etc. etc.

I built Water Music as a safe and comfortable cruising cat. Many construction/rigging items were over-specified or over-built. Consequently, she is not the fastest Gypsy afloat if you are into racing, but she is very comfortable for extended cruising, very seaworthy, and with the new screecher on the bowsprit, she is competitive with much larger vessels. I usually have to limit our sailing speed to 6/7 knots as my wife is a nervous sailor above those speeds. Water music has been tested in rough North Sea conditions over the years, and I have upgraded such things as rudders, safety rails and windows according to our experiences.


I am now 74 years old and I expected to keep sailing Water Music for another ten years or so, but Brexit, Covid and my wife's ill health have turned our world upside down. If we make it to Holland this July, I will be happy to welcome prospective buyers. We will be in the Zeeland area (south of Rotterdam).

Strider Club YETA Price £4000 ono - Strider Club with an enlarged rig.


Made famous in "A Day Sail to Russia" and is Richard's old boat.


Built 1989. Fully battened main (Dolphin Sails) and almost new barely used jib. Spinnaker 2003 by HK sails, good condition. Mast replaced 2002. Main traveller system and jib Barber haulers and spinnaker sheets. Various ropes and fenders & elderly boom tent (still functional, but never used by us). Ropes, halyards etc are generally in good condition. There is an auto-pilot for easy single-handing - I have sailed up our relatively narrow twisting estuary at speeds of up to 10 knots single-handed with all 3 sails flying as the system is very simple to adjust.


There is a 6HP Suzuki 4 stroke outboard with alternator; an elderly battery;  switch panel; instruments: wind speed & direction, speed/log and depth; Lowrance colour chart plotter with GPS and charts covering northern Europe; nav lights; sea toilet; radar reflector; stainless steel platform connecting front beam to bridle; additional cleats and a new aluminium forward beam to increase jib tension. 


The boat has been stored on land for the past three years and both hulls have been taken back to gel coat - and given 5 layers of Hempel High Protect epoxy coating. Photo proof of all preparation and layers available. I also have the survey report from when I bought the boat in 2010 - the general boat condition is much the same now as then apart from the work on the hull. The hull is very dry and the inside of the boat never seems to take in water no matter what the weather outside - I have recent moisture meter measurements.


It has been a great boat to sail with my family. Speeds of 10 knots are easily achieved and we have seen 15 knots with 2 sails on a reach. My family are all grown up and I have returned to dinghy sailing again so Yeta must be sold.


She is ashore on the north coast of Northern Ireland (I brought her over from England on a flatbed trailer) and is priced to sell quickly. I have many recent photos of her hulls, sails, etc both before and after the epoxy coating and the 2010 survey from when I bought her.
