Broker Remarks

Beautiful and lovingly maintained example of the popular cruiser from the westerly stable. Bilge keeled version with centre cockpit, separate aft cabin, spacious saloon with a further 2-berths, large heads and fore cabin. This boat is all about long range cruising and extended periods afloat. She has had many adventures during her life and has enjoyed several trans-Atlantic voyages and extended voyages to the Mediterranean Sea.

If you are looking for a safe, comfortable sailing cruiser as a family or as a couple, then look no further. Reliable inboard diesel, comprehensive navigation package and decent sail wardrobe. 



The accommodation on the yacht is superb and will appeal to all users. This is thanks to her centre cockpit and generous beam which results in a well appointed double berthed aft cabin, a further double berth option in the saloon and the double berth in the bow cabin. As previously mentioned this boat is all about spending extended periods afloat and if you are sailing as a couple then the cabin you are not habiting can be turned into additional storage space. As a family cruiser she is superb as the berths are long and generous which will keep even the taller family members happy.

AFT CABIN - This is accessed from the cockpit and features a sliding hatch and wooden washboards. There is a double berth with hull mounted storage lockers port and starboard and additional storage beneath the bunks. There is an infill cushion which stores beneath the access step when not in use. 12V lighting and an opening port for additional ventilation. Provision is also made for emergency steering with the rudder stock easily accessed for use with the emergency tiller. 

MAIN SALOON - The saloon is accessed from the cockpit by a sliding hatch and lockable wooden washboards. Three steps down and you are in the main cabin with full standing headroom. To port is the galley and to starboard the chart table/navigation centre. The saloon is warm and welcoming which is achieved by the Sapele hard wood trim and veneered marine ply bulkheads. The saloon table has two hinged leaves which when extended can sit 7-8 persons in comfort. There is central bottle storage. Port and starboard are the saloon berths. By removing the back support cushions and unbolting the back rests, this gives greater width. The back rest then becomes a solid lee-board or in the case of the port berth will create a double berth if required. Hull mounted storage cupboards above both settees. Storage below.

BOW CABIN - This cabin features a large V-Berth with removable infil. There are full length shelves either side of the hull for books and personal belongings. Beneath the forward end of the V-Berth is the stainless steel water tank. There are two hanging lockers on the starboard side which are fully lined to avoid condensation. These are full height and offer storage for either wet gear or his and hers options. Opening deck hatch for light and ventilation. 12V reading lights.

HEADS COMPARTMENT - Large heads compartment on port side forward of the saloon bulkhead. This is lined in easy clean mouldings and features a marine toilet with holding tank, Stainless steel sink with pull out hot and cold shower attachment and an excellent storage locker for toiletries. Easy access to plumbing and sea cocks beneath the sink unit. Opening port for light and ventilation. 12V lighting. Shower pump out. 

GALLEY - The galley is to starboard of the companionway and is L - Shaped. It is well designed as whoever is cooking or preparing is not in the way of the rest of the crew/navigator. As well as fabulous storage options there is a top loading fridge which can also become a freezer, a 2-burner gas hob with grill and a 240V microwave situated below. The stainless steel sink is built into the work tops and has hot and cold pressurised water along with a hand pumped fresh water pump with filter. 

CHART TABLE - Situated opposite the galley is the chart table/navigation station .  Here you will find a well laid out chart table with chart storage, space for plotting instruments and navigation aids including a colour chart plotter, VHF radio and NAVTEX receiver. This is also where the 12/240V supply is controlled with fused isolator switchers, battery condition/level monitor and 240V battery charger and solar charger. Storage cupboards mounted along the hull above the table. Navigators seat.

Mechanical and Rigging


GRP constructed sailing yacht with heavy lay up hull and deck mouldings. White gelcoat topsides in excellent condition with smart navy blue cove line and boot top striping. This is the twin keel version giving a draft of 1.32M allowing the shallower rivers and estuaries of our wonderful coastline to be explored. Ideal too for those with a drying mooring. Skeg mounted, semi balance rudder with binnacle mounted wheel steering. Transom with stainless steel boarding ladder. Hull to deck join finished in thick teak rubbing strake. This has been attractively stained to increase its durability. Underwater areas were epoxy treated using Blakes System in 2009 as a preventative measure. Hull antifouled September 2021.

Getting around the decks on this boat is very easy indeed. This is thanks to her considerably wide side decks and uncluttered foredeck. All walkways including forward and aft coachroofs are finished in smart grey non-slip paint. Handily placed teak grab rails on fore and aft coachroofs assist in safe movement around the decks. Stainless steel push and pulpit rails connected by aluminium stanchions and double set of guardwires. Top, starboard side guard wire replaced with uncoated stainless steel in 2019. Stainless steel stemhead fitting with double bow roller. This allows the main anchor to be permanently mounted ready for deployment. Cayman deck mounted horizontal electric windlass with deck mounted foot controls.  Aluminium fairleads fore and aft and aluminium mooring cleats, fore, aft and handily placed at mid ships.

Deep safe cockpit with teak grate in cockpit sole. Beneath this is a large engine access hatch ideal for servicing and maintenance tasks. Deck scuppers at after end drain any water quickly. Cockpit locker tops finished in "Treadmaster" panels. Cockpit coamings angled for comfort. Two large storage lockers port and starboard. The starboard locker houses the gas locker which is vented and drains outboard. The port locker houses the diesel tank nad raw water strainer. Excellent storage areas for long range cruising.

Binnacle mounted stainless steel steering wheel with rope trim. Compass with cover. Canvas wheel and binnacle cover. Navigation aids mounted on plinth above companionway.

  • Hull antifouled 2021

Engines & Electrics

Vessel is powered by an inboard Mercedes OMC636 diesel engine. This 4-cylinder work horse is situated beneath the companionway allowing easy access for servicing and daily checks. Although original, the engine is in excellent condition and there is no reason why she won't provide many years of good service in the future. Recent maintenance includes a reconditioned cylinder head in 2019. Engine serviced at the end of 2020 season and has run little since. Single lever engine control mounted at binnacle with forward and reverse gearing. Engine start panel with Rev counter. 

Hurth reduction gearbox driving a stainless steel shaft and 3 bladed bronze propeller. The propeller is protected by a skeg and is fitted with a Spurrs rope cutter. Yacht will cruise happily at 7 knots under engine at a frugal 0.75 litres per hour. 

Bank of 3x12V batteries fitted with a rotary style selector. The domestic batteries are deep cycle, 120 amp and were replaced in 2020. These are recharged by either the Ardvac charging management system linked to the engine alternator, the Sterling 4-Step, 20 amp smart charger or the 10W solar panel with Duo controller. These systems cover all eventualities and situations ensuring self sufficiency on long passages. Shore power inlet with RCD breaker. Shore power cable.
