Strider 24 is a Richard Woods designed catamaran. It was built in the United Kingdom by PALAMOS BOAT BUILDER in 1985.This boat is presently on the East Coast of Malaysia. She is moored for the sailing season and taken out of the water at the end of season. Recently resprayed with 2 pack PU International marine paint (Signal Yellow). Comes with trailer (for short distance trailing), 8 HP Suzuki Outboard Engine (enough power to get 7 kts at half throttle), Standard Dauphin sails that are good enough for cruising (for racing a new set of sails will be better), Anchor, cooker, etc.
It is easy to maintain this boat. Forget about expensive slipways and cranes.You can sail right up to the beach with itís daggerboard raised. Discover new cruising grounds that you will never dare to go with a keel boat.
present owner uses her as a day boat, similar boats have done extensive
long distance cruising. Richard Woods and gang have sailed their boat
The present Malaysian owner is looking forward to building a bigger Woods designed catamaran and willing to part with his ever faithfull Strider 24 for Malay Ringgit RM 48,000. If you need the tow vehicle as well, the boat and the Ford Ranger in the picture can go for RM 93,000. The RM 48,000 asking price (is roughly about US$ 14,000) she should suite someone wanting to get out of the global financial turmoil and go cruising on a relatively low budget around Asia at your own leisure.
