Unfortunately the time has come for me to sell my beloved Konsort, Xanadu.
Xanadu is the perfect boat for someone looking for a well looked after, updated, and ready to sail away boat, perfect as a small liveaboard or a family cruiser. We have just spent four weeks aboard sailing the south coast, and loved every second of it. Shed comfy to sail with 4 aboard and can sleep 6, but its a bit of a squeeze.
According to Yachting Monthly, “The Westerly Konsort seems to be a bigger boat than she really is. At a fraction under 29ft in length, her appearance is deceptive because of her generous volume. It’s not until you take the helm that you realise you are not really sailing a 34 footer, even though it may look like it!” And that is certainly my experience over the last two years.
Over the last two years I have carried out a huge amount of work, spent a lot of time, and money bringing Xanadu up to date and looking as smart as she can. She has just been sand blasted and antifouled, and I have a survey available form 2017.
