Its rumored that when Homer Winslow had completed his painting "Breezing Up (A Fair Wind)" his only comment was - that while he was happy with his work- he wished the boys had been sailing a Westerly 25. This classy U.K. built vessel has the lines that make it a British favorite. The triple (also known as twin) keel was originally for North Atlantic waters. Besides being almost as fast as the typical single keel, it makes grounding safer as the twin keels serve as a stand if the tide continues to recede. Having a twin keel allows for more stability for a given draft. The Westerly's 2.5 ft draft encourages gunk holing - a particularly attractive activity in Florida's coastal and inshore waters (Gunkholing is a boating term referring to a type of cruising in shallow or shoal water, meandering from place to place, spending the nights in coves. Gunkholers typically seek out the serenity of isolated anchorages over the crowds of marinas and popular bays, and a minimal draft is preferred, since gunkholers tend to go as far up and into the gunkholes as possible, seeking ever more inaccessible destinations.). The Westerly comes with a trailer-allowing you to take the vessel to locations that might be impracticable by water. New sails 2007. A major refit was conducted at Strouts Point Wharf Company during the 2006/2007 Winter lay up period. A copy of an April 19 2007 Insurance Survey is available on request.
