Broker Remarks

This Westerly 33 Ketch is in fantastic condition for a boat of her age, she has been refitted over the last two years and looks great with it. Her interior has been modernised and brought into the 21st century with modern looks and comfort to match. She benefits from a new genoa last year and has also had an engine rebuild in 2009 that has only had 180 hours put on it
since the rebuild.
The Westerly 33 Ketch offers excellent accommodation with the main interior berthing four and the separate aft cabin housing another two berths. She benefits from having cabin heating a refrigerator and hot water so all the creature comforts that you would like in a modern boat are present with Meonwara.
If you are looking for a yacht with good below decks space and a solid sailing yacht at an excellent value, then look no further as this Westerly 33 Ketch is a superb match!


Owners Comments:
Meonwara is a solid, dry boat which handles well and really starts to move in stronger winds, she is very stable as she has a heavier displacement than modern yachts.
We have modernised the interior for comfort and easy care to facilitate long periods aboard. We hope that the new owners will continue to enjoy and develop Meonwara to their own tastes.
