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 orginally 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.

To advertise on this list please email us with full details of your boat, including up to 4 photos. To pay for the advert please use the Order Form, tick/check the Consultancy Box and in the Comments page say it is for an advert. 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. Thankyou.

SOLD Banshee 35 'Rahula'

Sept 2010: Built by Palamos in the UK 1989 This Banshee was professionally built by the Palamos Yard and is on her third owners. She has been regularly updated and maintained by her current Yacht Surveyor/Engineer owners, including being completely re-wired with a high-spec electrical system (so there no need for shore-supply or generators!).

She is fully equipped for short-handed blue-water cruising with all additional equipment, including drogue, para-anchor, satphone, tools, spares, galley equipment, folding bikes, kayak and much more included in the sale. From 2007-2008 she was sailed from the UK to Eastern Australia. On arrival she commenced a partial refit in preparation for the return leg to the UK, however the owners went from a couple to a triple and so plans have had to be delayed!

This refit included: -Full re-furbishment of the daggerboards, daggerboard cases and rudders -The Yanmar D27 engine was completely re-built by a diesel outboard specialist and now looks and runs like new. -A new laminate roller-reefing genoa was made and the main has had a full service.

This is a very reluctant sale of a capable, comfortable and fast blue water cruising catamaran who has looked after her owners on the adventure of a lifetime. Rahula is currently laid up in Port Stephens, Australia and once commissioned is ready to cruise oceans again!

SOLD from this advert!!! Wizard "Lavendel Expressen", The original Woods Designs built/owned Wizard

"I have had Wizard for 10 years. Although she was originally built for racing, I bought her for her stability and for being easy to handle singlehanded as my partner is too physically disabled to stand the movements of a monohull or to help out with the sailing.Wizard kept her promises and was a really good choice for us. We also have been sailing with a lot of children and find Wizard roomy, safe and pleasant to sail in all ways. I am regrettfully selling because I too now at 65 am developing health problems.

Extra equipment includes a 6 year old Mainsail, a 5 year old selftacking and furling foresail and a almost un-used spinnaker. Engine is a 7 year old Suzuki 6.5 only used to get in and out of harbours. To know more about Wizard, you can also order STUDYPLANS from this site. Go to Shopping Cart and under 25 ft

If you would want to come and see and try out the boat you can take the ferry from Newcastle on Tyne to Kristiansand in Norway and the bus from there to Arendal. We have a big house, so if you wish you can stay with us while you make up your mind. Or you can charter the Wizard for a longer test. Could be a nice holiday. Welcome!
