The Westerly Fulmar is a good family cruiser with with all the usual Westerly virtues of solid construction and seaworthiness. 'Yachting Monthly' described the Fulmar as having ".... perfect manners - a light touch on the tiller, good balance and straight running".
Introduced in 1980, the Westerly Fulmar was the second design by Ed Dubois for Westerly, the first being the smaller Griffon 26. It was intended as a replacement for the Laurent Giles 31-footers (Westerly Longbow, Berwick, Renown and Pentland), but with substantially better performance. The main production run of the standard Fulmar 32 ended in 1992 with over 400 built. The Westerly Fulmar was a very successful pure cruiser, and a surprising number are still in use as sailing school and charter boats, a testament to their combination of vice-free handling and robust construction. Prices can vary a lot, from hard-worked ex-sailing-school boats to carefully maintained private-use boats.
Many people regard the Fulmar as the best boat Westerly ever built. The Fulmar is certainly a very fine sailing yacht.

Owners Comment -
The Bukh engine is a great quality engine, very smooth, always starts, easy to maintain and very durable.
Every season I follow a list of maintenance that I do when she comes out of the water and before she goes back into the water. One of the main item on this list is the engine which is always winterized and then before she goes back into the water: gets an oil change with new filters and water pump impeller. If necessary I check valve clearance.
