Wooden Sailing Boats

Wooden Sailing Craft

You clutch at the polished steering wheel as the warm southerly wind catches your sails and your boat surges forward. Your feet threaten to leave the teak deck for a split second, and salty sea spray splashes up to coat your lips with the taste of the ocean.” While that may sound like an excerpt from a pirate story, it could easily be a scene from your next summer holiday – if you just had the right boat. To help you in your search, we have listings for a variety of boats, from the latest stylised models to the traditional wooden classics.

Wooden sailing boats capture our imaginations and appeal to our sense of traditional beauty in a way that boats of a more modern appearance (think plastic and fibreglass) simply do not. Whether it’s a result of their innate connection with nature, the way they provide a link with the past, the display of culture and craftsmanship, or possibly a combination of all three, wooden sailing boats take us back to basics.

Sailing boats give you the opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy nature without the roar of a motor. The silence contributes to the serenity we associate with sailing classic boats, making them ideal for relaxation. Reading a good book while lying out on a wooden deck bathed in sunlight, with the only sound coming from the occasional wave lapping against the hull – what could possibly be more pleasant? However, there is usually the option to install an engine to make getting from A to B faster, easier, and more convenient. This means that if conditions are ideal you can make your journey by sail, but if the wind drops you won’t be left struggling to reach your destination. Do note that the right of way rules vary depending on whether the engine or the sail is providing power.

If you have been lucky enough to grow up with water sports in your life, or perhaps if you’ve just watched a few too many pirate movies, it’s likely that you associate sailing boats with freedom. For those with an adventurous streak, there are few things more appealing than boats with historical and cultural ties, be it through design or even age. Whether you’re interested in day trips in a dinghy or lengthy voyages on a vessel with a spacious cabin, the elements of tradition and craftsmanship can add ambience to your journey. It doesn’t matter if you’re aiming to create a romantic atmosphere for a cruise at sunset with your significant other, or an air of exhilaration to match fun, full-day adventures with the kids, wooden sailing boats add that little something extra to every maritime trip.

Whatever the size and nature of the vessel you’re looking for, you’ll be sure to find your dream sailing boat at Boats for Sale Worldwide. As mentioned above, we provide listings for modern and traditional wooden sailing boats, so check back regularly to ensure that you don’t miss out!
