Broker's Comments

A lovely example of a Westerly Merlin 28.

This boat has been subject to a serious amount of refurbishment during the current owners 3 years of ownership. There is nothing to be done other than maybe a lick of paint to the deck which is currently fine but would then be perfect.

The big benefit of this boat over others is that the entire headlining has been professionally replaced to a very high standard. A big expensive job that will last for years.

Engine has been well looked after and serviced by our local engineer who is always available to give an honest opinion if required.

Sails and standing rigging all recent as is upholstery throughout.

All in all a great buy at this price. Do your homework, see what else is around for more money and give me a ring!
