Pre-owned boats

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."

The cost to advertise your Woods Design is £50 (or approx $75) and the advert will run until sold. Or the cost is £75 ($100) if it is a non Woods Design boat. Boats wanted and gear for sale/wanted adverts can be put on my Forum pages. These adverts are free.

After purchasing an advert please email us with full details of your boat, including up to 4 photos.  Please note, you should send advert as plain text and photos as small separate jpegs. Doc and rtf files will not be accepted as they take too long to reformat. Thank you.

NOTE:  I have kept some old adverts online so you can get a guide to prices

S/V Snowflake is a 1987 35 foot Richard Woods Flica F3 catamaran, production boat built by Palamos Boatbuild Ltd in Cornwall, England. A 1988 South West Export Award Winner, the Flica was designed and built for comfort and crossing oceans. 

Snowflake is fitted out for long distance cruising, has sailed across the Atlantic multiple times, most recently with the current owner in December 2017. (EU VAT has been paid) 
 
Many upgrades and extras added from 2014 through 2019. 
 
NOTE: Starboard engine is Yanmar 2gm20, raw/salt water cooled (needs replacing) 
Port engine is Yanmar 2gm20fc (fresh water cooled, good condition)
 
*Asking price reflects needed replacement of engine in starboard hull. 
 
All lines are lead aft to the cockpit (all running rigging new 2017), enabling ease and safety of sail handling. The Furlex headsail furler (new 2014) makes reefing or furling in the Genoa (new 2017) a snap and the lazy bag system (new 2014) allows the captain to quickly drop the mainsail (new 2017) when necessary. The two backstays (rarely found on other catamarans) offer greater strength to the rig, and her whisker pole (new 2015) reaches the genoa out fully to take advantage of downwind trades. Her smaller rig (all standing rigging new 2015, inspected Jan 2018) makes her easy to handle by a couple. 

In the cockpit, a sturdy stainless steel Bimini frame with canvas offers protection from the elements and an excellent location for 3 solar panels (new 2018) totaling 885 watts, which provide Snowflake with copious amounts of energy to run all electrical systems and charge devices. This catamaran is NOT a dock queen – Snowflake has not been plugged into shore power since October 2017


Storage lockers aft, and forward provide more than enough space for fenders, lines and other items.

Inside, headroom is 6’4” throughout and the spacious design is equivalent to that of a 50’ monohull. 

The windows in the saloon allow for full visibility and plenty of light (curtains all new 2014) throughout and the large seating area provides room for eight people to comfortably enjoy a meal or play a game of dominos or cards. (All cushions recovered 2014.) Below the seating area is ample storage and the saloon table can be raised in order to allow unlimited access to the storage if completing a large provision. Ample bookshelves provide room for a generous library for those lengthy passages. The teak floor (new 2014) provides a classic look and warm feeling in the saloon. 


Two generous double bunks, each located in the starboard and port forward cabins offer privacy and comfort to the owner and guests. (Mattress in port forward cabin new 2014.) Storage spaces abound in both cabins, with the added luxury of having large hanging lockers in each cabin. If a 3rd bunk is needed, the starboard aft cabin can be used (currently no mattress in place).

On the starboard side, the extensive counter space in the galley provides excellent space to create meals, while offering sizable storage for dishes, cookware, and provisions. While spacious, the galley is extremely safe when under way, with many places to brace oneself while prepping meals or washing dishes. The 2 burner Eno stove and oven (new 2018) provides the chef with many options for preparing meals. A Waeco refrigerator (new 2013) offers great space for food, drinks, and its small freezer has room for several ice trays and ice packs. The 45-liter-per-hour water maker (new 2015) ensures that the crew never runs out of fresh drinking water onboard. 

A large navigation table located in the port side offers space to lay out full sized charts, while also can be folded up and out of the way when not in use. Just behind the navigation table you will find a large work surface that is handy for any project and is next to a hanging wet locker. 

The head is located in the port aft and contains a C-Head compost toilet (new 2017). Pull out faucet at the sink can be used as shower. 

A total of four 50-liter water tanks reside in the bilges (2 located in the center of each hull). Throughout, plentiful storage is found in lockers, drawers, and in the bilges. Easy access to all bilges. 

Hatches (replaced in 2014) and port lights (all re-bedded and seals replaces 2017) offer excellent ventilation. 

Word from the owner: “I purchased Snowflake because I was looking for a comfortable vessel that could take me far and keep me safe. After looking at several other makes of catamarans, it was obvious that Snowflake was the boat I was looking for. Sailing her in the Mediterranean, through heavy storms in the Gulf de Lyon, across the Atlantic Ocean, and through dark squalls in the Eastern Caribbean, she never let me down. Snowflake has been my home for 6 years. She’s great fun to sail and extremely comfortable at sea and at anchor. The designer, Richard Woods has always been very responsive to my emails whenever I had questions when refitting the boat. It’s been a hard decision, but I’m deciding to sell her so I can follow my dreams and do a different type of sailing in higher latitudes.”

For comparison of value please note that another Havcat 27 from 1979 (sail number D25M) was offered for sale at 30,000 euros, lying Denmark with broker Evecom and featured as June 2018 boat of the month. She was soon sold.

Off Les Sables, heading for Belle Isle - plenty of room for a dinghy on the trampoline

I’ve just returned from 3 months coastal hoping from Falmouth to Bordeaux and back in “The Allotment”. The return journey was my first solo 100 mile crossing of the channel.

 

She was great fun and handled a range of weathers. She was easy to steer in harbour and easy to manage when I was sailing single-handed. Her draught is an enormous benefit, giving easy access to harbours, rivers and nature reserves, which other boats could not use. 

 

Afloat till the end of October for potential buyers to experience the joy of sailing this “classic” Woods Strider.

Unbelievably still afloat in such little water (25cm draft) - Bonne Anse, Gironde

 

At 24’ not too big to be tucked in at the end of a pontoon in a busy marina.

With the twin dagger boards up, she has very little water resistance, which obviously is ideal for downwind sailing but also means she is very economic with fuel. 1L per hour at a steady 5 - 6kn. 

If you are into small cat sailing, you won’t be disappointed. She’s a goer, responds well, is easy to handle solo and offers a surprising amount of storage and accommodation.

Previous owner looked after her well and gave me £6000 worth of 2013 receipts to prove it. I have also lavished £££ on her (see below), so you won’t need to do the same for a few years.

The Allotment is a “standard” Strider 24 professionally built in glass-fibre by Palamos in 1989.

• SPEED Previous owner, “16 knots recorded on a reach in a flattish sea, but typically 7-11 knots in comfortable airs), and she points quite high with her twin dagger boards and bigger rig giving enhanced performance over the Club.” We’ve only reached 12kn in Falmouth but she is certainly capable of more. Maybe more importantly for me, has been the ability to reach port, without using the engine, in light airs!

• Amazingly seaworthy for a small catamaran. We negotiated 3m overlapping swells from 2 different directions when leaving the Gironde.. and, later the same day, surfed 2m swells approaching La Rochelle.

 

Travelling West around Isle d'Oleron – easily handling 2m swell on the beam

 

 

• Four single berths – 2 in each hull. We use the aft 2 for storage and the bunks’ mattresses in the cuddy for a double. In the warmer weather, we also sleep on the trampolines and in the fiberglass cockpit tray.

• If there’s water in the bilges, you’ve spilt your tea. Otherwise, she’s dry as a bone.

• Previous owner renewed standing rigging, running rigging, trampolines in 2013.

 

Just before Channel Crossing: Falmouth - Roscoff

 

• Previous owner added Plywood decking aft of the mast with a professionally designed and manufactured removable canvas cuddy (2013), “Makes the boat so much more comfortable when it's nippy!” I replaced one half of the ply deck in 2015. The other half is in good condition. However, the original aft-of-mast trampoline will come with the boat, if you want to reduce weight for racing etc.

• Tohatsu 6HP Sail Pro extra-long shaft (new August 2017) with alternator (we don’t use the power from the alternator, as the PV is more than adequate) and new (2017) external fuel tank.

• Sails serviced 2016. Elastic batten pockets replaced in main.

• Raymarine self-steering makes singlehanded sailing a doddle, while you shelter in the cuddy, or stand in the companion way of either hull.

• The internal accommodation in the hulls is finished with soft carpet lining.

• Twin solar panels (2016) easily provide power for: self-steering, mobile phone charging; LED nav lights (2017) and LED domestic lights (2017).

• Bimini. Removable poles bolt into tubes attached to the end of the aft beam. Using these plus the mast and shrouds, a large lightweight Bimini can be erected. Ideal for sun or rain shade.

 

Les Glenans - bimini a great asset - can be rigged below boom in stronger winds or for better rain protection

 

  • 80% of external wood (rubbing streak, useful long handrails and companionway features) replaced 2016.
80% of wood work replaced by carpenter 2016 – rain just after an oiling

 

• Rewired 2016.

• Starboard hull: Fitted Chart table; “built-in” Porta Potty; shelved and strapped domestic battery; cupboards.

• Port hull: hinged fitted table; removable fitted cooking surface; cupboards.

• Portholes all replaced 2016

• Kick-up rudders (serviced and sections replaced 2016 & 2017)

• Interiors re-painted. Bilges GRP’d 2016

• Canvas Cuddy redesigned and kicking strap added (2017)

3 Jack Stays: port, starboard, cockpit (new 2017)

2 Silva compasses (one of them new 2017)

Anchor ball sign

Horse shoe lifebuoy

 

Plastimo tubular radar reflector (2017)

 

Trailer

Trailer collapses to a few cm wider than a standard car (see below)

 

There is also a bespoke Galvanised Trailer available - no extra charge. 

The whole boat is loaded onto the expanded trailer.

The boat can be floated onto or off the trailer but would need thorough fresh water washing after use!

Once the decks and beams have been dismantled, the hull cradles slide towards the centre of the trailer.

Decks and beams then stand on edge between the hulls.

The trailer requires both axles replacing. I have the parts but not yet replaced them. 

Estimated weight 1.5T including all gear, trailer and personal effects for sailing. So, 2L+ car needed to pull the boat and gear.

 

Currently in Devoran, Falmouth Estuary, Cornwall (Till end of October).

 

Price: £10,000. 

 

Many more photos available.

2008 Strider 25 for sale with asymmetric spinnaker. Hardly used, kept out of the water most of the last 3 years. In beautiful condition as it's only been sailed a handful of times. It's a 2008 boat where as most Striders are 1985-89, it has the big rig and the grp deck (like the Club) which makes it much nicer to sail or stay on than the original Strider.

Hulls beautiful condition, mast rigging/running rigging all very very good condition sails in very very good condition, large asymmetric like new recently antifouled. Ready to go sailing!
