Broker Remarks

This is a very well equipped Westerly GK 29, over the past two seasons the owners have upgraded and maintained this yacht to a very high standard, the list of most noticeable changes that have been made during 2014/15 are as follows; new hull and head linings throughout, new seacocks, new folding two-blade prop, new mainsail, new No 1 genoa, the hull was epoxied in 2015.
This is the cruiser version of the GK 29, not the half tonner with the taller rig and deeper keel, the boat has mainly been used as a cruiser hence items such as the refrigerator, diesel fired heating etc have been fitted.
She is in excellent condition for a boat of her age showing the normal signs of light wear and tear for a 1978 yacht.
