The Flicka 20 design in a frame kit.

We are asked many times do we have the Flicka 20 plans, the reply is always the same, no.

What we do have is the frame sections profiles, this also indicates where the slab of lead ballast will fit. From what we have we can supply a set of sections cut from MDF (supawood) for about the cost of R8000, thats around U$588 right now. From the frame kit you can do a really nice strip plank build, we could also supply the clear oregon pine and epoxy required.

That will ship as an 8 x 4 flat pack (2440 x 1220) and we can arrange the shipping at actual cost as well.

Licence agreement?

The buyer has to understand that we are offering the boats shape profiles with no specific plans or licence to build the boat but as the plans were previously published in Rudder Magazine, we feel the plans are now in a free domain.

Please read the words below from the Flicka 20 web site.


Unfortunately the plans have been unavailable for some time. However, Bruce Bingham is interested in making them available and is apparently working on this. We hope to sell these plans online on behalf of Bruce some day.

We will advertise the plans on this site as soon as they become available again.

Web captain - March 2009

Pacific Seacraft own the production rights to the Flicka but have stated that there is no money to be made from building Flickas as production costs are too high. They (PSC) still have the tooling but seem content to let the Flicka class die. So until further notice the Flicka is out of production and no longer available. We at are sad about this and have tried everything we can to raise the Flicka from the dead but unfortunately it is out of our control.

Please do not contact the web captain about this. Instead try phoning Pacific Seacraft and asking them why they are content to kill the Flicka.
