Westerly - Longbow
1976 - GRP aft cockpit sloop rigged cruising yacht built to the designs of Laurent Giles in 1973. The accommodation was considered huge for a 31 foot boat when introduced, and is still spacious. Sailing performance is good and this yacht is in all around good condition having been re-engined in 2014/15 with a reconditioned Volvo Penta 2003 engine. In the last 5 years she has had new and standing and running rigging, a new Gori folding prop, stern gear, new engine Morse controls, the replacement Volvo 2003 engine, new fuel tank, new roller reefing claw, new genoa, new folding sprayhood, new wiring and new gas line feed. Wheel steering with electric autohelm. A full marine survey from 2012 is available for inspection and values the boat at £15,000 at that time (before many of the replacements were carried out). As with many boats of this age, there is blistering to the hull but this is not impacting the structural integrity and is accounted for in the asking price.
