Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Peter Delbridge of Boatshed Hamble. Register or log in to see 42 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
A lovely original example of this quality marque that is a credit to its owners maintenance over the years. Although predominantly a cruising boat she was Westerly's second design from the more performance-orientated board of Ed Dubois. A good all-round family cruising boat with comfortable accomodation and good sea manners. Book your viewing now as she will not be around for long.
