The Flicka 20 pocket cruiser was designed as a small cruising boat that would be fun to sail, affordable on a modest budget, and with an interior that would appeal to today's modern sailor. That she delivers fast performance under sail is a bonus. Long passages of a five-knot average and better are not uncommon.

Her design was inspired by the Newport boats of Rhode Island, small weatherly craft that plied the open waters of tempestuous Block Island Sound under sail and year-around during the early 1900s.

The forward double V-berth gives superb sleeping comfort for a couple. She has a spacious and airy cabin with full standing headroom and an enclosed head. With her amazing load-carrying ability, she is capable of real passage-making.

Stepping down below is the opposite of stepping into the cockpit; your reaction is, "This can't be a 20-foot boat." There really is standing headroom throughout and the open plan without a full forward bulkhead opens things up. The teak joinerwork is quite nice.

The galley is to port includes a good-sized sink and an icebox compartment. 6 foot headroom, starboard settee, large quarter berth and v berth forward.

How does a Flicka sail?

How can a boat that carries a total of 243 square feet of sail area and displaces 6,000 pounds along an 18-foot LWL sail at all? Better than you might think. The Flicka's hull speed is 5.7 knots. Sure, the boat needs a bit of breeze to gather way on, but it was not designed for light-air daysails.

It may be small but it belongs on big bodies of water. And it's a passagemaker. Several Flickas have averaged 120 miles per day on trade wind crossings, and that's good going: 5 knots over 24 hours. The Flicka's history is filled with boats that have crossed oceans, and that's the ultimate statement about how it sails.

Pacific Seacraft switched to vinlyester resins that are more resistant to osmotic blistering. The hull is solid fiberglass. The decks are balsa cored with laminated plywood backing plates where necessary.

The hull and deck are joined on an inward flange that is then covered by a husky caprail. A molded, structural hull liner provides athwartship support. In keeping with the Flicka's overall philosophy, it's built like a small big boat, not a small boat.
