The GK29 was a production cruiser-racer, intended as a dual-purpose boat that could be cruised or raced under Half Ton Cup rules. It still makes a good club racer, and GK29s have a surprisingly big interior thanks to the wide beam, high freeboard and near flush deck.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
I do like these stylish cruiser/racers from Westerly. They are fast boats, and unlike the GK24, the GK 29 has a fair amount of room down below.

The GK29 was designed by Mike Pocock and Lauren Giles, and was successful from day one, with over 180 of them being made in the late ‘seventies/early ‘eighties.

The present owner has had this boat for 20 years and is now moving on to bigger vessel – so he is keen to sell.

This yacht is very well presented & has clearly had a lot of time love & money poured into her over the last 20 years, she is currently ashore ready to go to her new home..,
Viewing Highly Recommended!
