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

 

14ft plywood Zeta trimaran prototype

Built in 2016 and little used. It was exhibited at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival and then only sailed a couple of times before being stored for 2 years.

The boat has just been trailed down to N California, see photo.

Circumstances have changed and I'm not sure when I will be able to sail it again. A quick sale is required.

For sale are the basic hulls/tramps, foils etc and mast/boom/rigging, but it needs a mainsail and optional jib. However the bowsprit and purple screecher are included.

Sold with a legal (Wa) licensed trailer with new wheels and lights so can be safely trailed away. It's stored undercover, well wrapped up. Full building plans and advice are included.

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)

 

Crossing Audierne Bay - 22 mile spinnaker run

 

Equipment

Mainsail, mainsail cover (new 2015), furling genoa (new sheets 2017) and spinnaker

Anchor with 50m chain and plaited anchor warp

Fenders, mooring ropes, mooring bridle and boat hook (2016)

Raymarine 1000 self-steering – fluxgate compass replaced August 2017

Combined LED Tricolour and Anchor Masthead lights (new 2017)

(Also new 2017) 22mm Main Rail, Train and Jamming Cleat Ends

Tohatsu 6hp, Sail Pro, power prop with ready to use wired alternator (August 2017)

Twin PV solar power panels (2016) on raised backing panel.

Set of spare mainsail battens

Mast beam replaced 2017

3 Self Holding Barlow Winches, 2 winch handles

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.

(I'll be sorry to sell the boat, but needs must. It's provided some good times and unforgettable adventures. I had an excellent week leaving the Azores for the UK - such light wind the whole time that I could hear whales breathing from quite a long distance, and many seemed to take an interest in the boat - most sperm whales but also minkes. Many close encounters! I could do with more of that.)
