Broker's Comments

Only three of these Westmacott day sailers were built. They are based on the Sunbeam but without the overhangs. The mid sections and keel are the same.

This is a very pretty day boat but don't be fooled in to thinking she is old and slow. Far from it, look a little more closely and you will find some pretty racey gear on this boat. Her race record shows she has pretty much won everything in the gaffer fleet around Falmouth and now carries a pretty severe rating.

Her epoxy treatment was done well as she appears to be in remarkable condition.

This very rare little gaffer has all the style of the 1920's coupled with discreet modern technology. This allows you to go classic boat sailing, week after week with minimal boat maintenance.

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Steven of Boatshed Falmouth.
