Overview/History

Designed by Bruce Bingham and for the most part manufactured by the now closed, Pacific Seacraft Corporation of Southern California. PSC was well known for their commitment to quality and the Flicka displays their goals quite well. I sailed for a couple of hours with Eric Jungeman, owner of Hotspur at the time.

I was impressed the way the Flicka would heel over and dig in to accelerate against the heavy San Francisco Bay winds. Her weight would bring us through the slow tacks and her full keel would keep us accelerating through the hard, fast tacks needed in traffic. Five foot eleven inches of headroom, a full galley, opening portlights and an enclosed head all in a trailerable craft.

Specifications:

Length Overall... 20' Length Waterline... 18'2" Beam... 8' Displacement... 5500 Pounds Ballast... 1750 Pounds Sail Area... 250 Square Foot
