Broker's Comments

This lovely original example of this quality marque was sold by ourselves last year and she is still a credit to her past owners for their maintenance over the years. Although predominantly a cruising yacht 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.
