    Brokers Comments
    This Westerly Merlin 28 bilge keel yacht has been owned by her current keepers for over 15 years & is now reluctantly up for sale. Built in 1990, she was one of the last Merlin 28’s manufactured & was the actual boat featured in Sailing Today’s used boat feature on the Merlin. She offers a light bright & surprisingly spacious cabin with 7 berths split between 2 cabins and saloon. In addition, she has a hanging wet locker, chart table & well appointed heads with washbasin as well as a galley with oven/grill & hob. She has a good suite of electronics with VHF, GPS, plotter, Navtex, autopilot & depth log. On deck, she is also well equipped with many features including battened mainsail with lazyjacks, furling genoa, cruising chute & jackstays. She also has a fantastic cockpit tent that provides additional cabin when moored.

    The Westerly Merlin is notably roomy for a boat of her size which sails well & is easy to handle. With her bilge keel she is able to get into anchorages & moorings that many fin keel yachts can’t. She is an excellent, safe & reliable boat which is both fun to sail & comfortable to live on-board. She is ideal for family sailing around coastal waters whilst still being very capable of cruising further afield. She is currently lying in Southampton & viewing can be arranged through Aspire Boat Sales
