Description: Snowflake is a 1987 35 foot Richard Woods Flica F3 catamaran, production boat built byPalamos 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 fully fitted out for long distance cruising, has sailed across the Atlantic comfortably multiple times, most recently with the current owner in December 2017.(EU VAT has been paid)

Inside, headroom is 6ft 4inches throughout and the spacious design is equivalent to that of a 50 foot monohull.

With 885 watts of solar, this catamaran is NOT a dock queen Snowflake has not been plugged into shore power since October 2017.

The two 18 hp Yanmar engines (variety of spares included) allow the helms person to spin Snowflake on a dime, offering excellent maneuverability.(Update: engine in starboard hull will need to be replaced.)

*The needed replacement of the starboard engine is reflected in the asking price.

Many upgrades from 2014-2019, contact owner for full list.

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. Shes 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. Its been a hard decision, but Im deciding to sell her so I can follow my dreams and do a different type of sailing in higher latitudes.

Word from the Designer:
FLICA is the most comfortable boat we have ever sailed and feels very secure and stable, even in strong winds in fact, neither of us would have any hesitation about sailing FLICA single-handed round the world."
