Designed by Laurent Giles, and introduced in 1972, the Westerly Longbow is a solid coastal or offshore cruiser, built like all Westerlys of the period, to Lloyds specification and fitted out as a spacious family boat Although the same hull was used by other models, to me the Longbow with her fin keel, ketch rig and aft cockpit seems to have eliminated most of the compromises you are usually faced with when deciding on a cruising boat. They are known to sail well and are easily single-handed with a sail plan option for all conditions. The interior is light, spacious and extremely practical for both sailing and for liveaboard purposes. This particular example has been cared for, maintained and improved it appears continuously throughout her life and it shows as soon as you step aboard. Although the owner still has one or two jobs on his list (it's a boat, after all) she really is in true sail away condition having been re-engined, rigged, upholstered, canvassed and equipped all within the last 7 years. She looks and smells clean and dry and is presented very nicely, a real pleasure to be aboard These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
