Broker Remarks

A really tidy and well presented example of the well known Westerly Merlin.  Samannga has bilge keels so is ideal for cruising around the coast and estuaries.  There is a large double aft cabin together with double berth in forepeak, so well suited to a family or two couples. 

The Westerly Merlin was the second design that Westerly commissioned from Ed Dubois, with the aim of higher performance and a more modern hull form than the Laurent Giles designed Konsort. Although smaller than a Konsort, the Merlin has what may for most people be a better interior. The Merlin is also regarded as being generally faster than the Konsort.

In current ownership for two years.  Engine was serviced last year.  Realistically priced. Currently ashore in South Devon a 45 minute drive away from our office.
