Built from 1984 to 1992, 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, with a good sized double aft berth. The Merlin is also regarded as being generally faster than the Konsort. Merlins were built with fin or bilge keels.
About 170 were built during the production run, and like all Westerlys the hulls were moulded to Lloyds standards, and each hull issued with a Lloyds Hull Construction certificate. At different times different interior finishes were used, some having light ash veneers on the interior bulkheads. Some were built with vinyl headlinings, other had wood veneer on the headlinings.
Later model Merlins were called Merlin 28s or Merlin 29s, the main difference being a slight extension of the transom - the interiors were no different in size, although some minor layout changes were made. Most Merlins were fitted with 20 hp Bukh engines, though some later boats had had Volvo 18 hp diesels.
