Who has a Wharram for sale?

Hi folks, I am writing this on Nov 26, 2023

My name is RIchard. I am in the USA, but I am not limited only to purchasing a boat in the USA.

I am looking and maybe shopping for a Wharram. I have found some listings for sale but that sale happened years ago and their listing has not been updated. I have also found listings for Wharrams that are now in estates of owner/owners who have passed on.

Hoping to hear from you soon!

Tiki 30 spinnaker

Hello fellow Wharram sailors. I have been on the hard for a couple of years but I am planning to launch early spring. I’m hoping someone can offer a suggestion for a spinnaker for downwind sailing. I’m hoping to find a decent used sail. I’m sure this topic has been discussed before but I don’t see anything. Thank for any info.

changing U Bolt to lashings for forestay bridle

Hi would anyone have the drawings for changing the U Bolt to lashings for forestay bridle? Does there need to be extra wood or epoxy in the stem to carry the load as it appears the lashing hole are drilled further back than the ubolt position. Cheers Pat

Tiki 26

Might be selling Ataya my Tiki 26 due to family reasons.She has undergone a major refit over last few years and is ready for untold adventure. She was build by Steve Turner at Image Multihulls and is a rare GRP model. She will be out of the budget as per recent post on the blog but I’m happy to provide further details should anyone be interested.

happy sailing Folks
