    The last Westerly Merlin 28 built in 1990

    “Molly” is sail no 151 and is unique as she is the last Merlin 28 built by Westerly in 1990. She is an excellent example of the ever popular Bilge Keel family cruiser with great accommodation for her size including a double aft cabin, a double forward cabin and saloon with port and starboard seating plus a teak drop leaf table that converts to a double berth. She has a sizeable galley area, a dedicated chart table and a large heads that would normally be seen in a much larger vessel.
    Being the last Merlin built, “Molly” benefits from having the latest fully teak internal mouldings including improved galley area, chart table and teak and holly floor/sole. We have improved the saloon area further by having both port and starboard teak double cupboards, teak bulkhead surrounds and instrument panels professionally fitted by Taff Howells which really adds to the warmth and cosy feeling in the saloon. At the same time both the saloon and forward head linings were removed and refitted professionally by Roger Nantis this also included removal, refurbishment and rebedding of the saloon windows. “Molly’s” saloon is now a delightful place to be.
    The galley is a good size with enough space for everything you need for extended cruising and benefits from having a new Plastimo cooker fitted in 2016. The heads are large for this size of vessel and benefit from having had a new Jabsco toilet and pipework fitted.
    The Volvo Penta 2002 is serviced annually and has benefitted from a comprehensive rebuild including spline conversion (£8k), PSS flexiseal and new cutlass bearing recently. The engine starts on the button from cold every time and has never lets us down.
    “Molly” is set up for single or short-handed sailing having an excellent Selden boom single line reefing system and more importantly Selden Batten cars which makes raising and lowering the fully battened main sail an absolute breeze in all weathers, it really does make a big difference in a blow. The mainsail has recently been serviced and laundered including a new bolt rope and conversion to a loose foot sail making fitting a lot easier at the beginning and end of the season. The standing rigging was replaced in 2011 including a new Harken furler and new Genoa. All the canvas work has been replaced in the past two years including Sprayhood and companion way closure and dodgers with handy rope bags plus a new pack away system with sail bag and mast boot.
    “Molly” is also set up for channel crossing or extended cruising as she benefits from having a Raymarine C80 chart plotter and Radar, a full Raymarine ST50/60 electronics package including compass and autohelm plus a flush mounted Standard Horizon GX1600 with DSC and MMI and repeater at the chart table.
    There is also an Avon redstart round tale inflatable dinghy with outboard bracket, pump and oars in great condition that fits perfectly in the forward cabin locker.
    “Molly” is an excellent example of a family cruiser that is also set up perfectly for single or short-handed sailing. Her sea keeping is excellent and her cockpit and deep coamings makes her feel very safe at sea or when the weather turns. She is also very comfortable at anchor or in the marina as she has the advantage of having a separate aft cabin large heads and galley and of course the cosy saloon. Being bilge keel, she can dry out if required and can navigate shallows and creaks having a draft of less than 1 metre. “Molly” is ready to go and set up for the new owner to enjoy the rest of the season.
