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

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!

SOLD from this advert!!! VIXEN Strider catamaran

Built by Palamos in 1988 Vixen is a standard Strider, that is to say she has daggerboards and a narrow deck (not up to the mast like the Club Strider.) There are also running backstays. She has had Bowmar hatches fitted to the coachroofs making the hulls much lighter inside.

Since 2000 when I bought the boat she has had new sails (the headsail is only 2years old) new standing rigging, new tramps, new rudders and a new 4hp Mercury four stroke outboard. There are two GPS one built in and working with the digital VHF. The other hand held GPS has fittings on the cabin so that it can be moved to whichever side the helmsman is sitting. Vixen was raced seriously in her earlier life, I have been gradually developing her as a cruising boat.

The price includes an excellent purpose built road trailer which has had new springs and brakes fitted and is ready to tow anywhere. The boat can be delivered anywhere in the UK within reason.

SOLD from this advert!!! STRIDER 24FT MICRO MULTIHULL CATAMARAN Lying Lymington, UK. Several suits of sails; furling headsail; masthead spinnaker. Sail no. 63. Outboard motor 4hp. Anchor and chain; warps; fenders. Compass. Road trailer. £7,500 ono. (Note from Richard - this boat was the second Strider owned by probably the most experienced Strider sailor in the world. Thus I suspect it is very well sorted and maintained)

SOLD from this advert!!! Strider Catamaran with larger rig

I have to sell the boat on health grounds and dearth of crew. I bought the hulls from Palamos Boatbuild in 1989 then fitted them out as a Turbo and launched 1990. The sails are from the Gwahir "Rush Rush" and are still serviceable for cruising. There is a 4 horse Yamaha in excellent condition. New Z spar cruising mast fitted 1996. Net & trampoline need replacing.

The boat has never been raced but cruised, gently and comfortably, in the Irish Sea, Howth, IoM, Barmouth, and round the coast of Anglesey. The boat is tidy and presently laid up at Gallows Point, North Wales . My mooring License is paid up for the year.
