We are selling our beloved Westerly Renown. One of the best or the best Westerlys ever built (according to some!).
We love her because she was our introduction to sailing. We are selling her only because we are getting a larger Westerly that gives us more accommodation as we now live aboard.
She is a 1979 Westerly Renown centre cockpit ketch which we purchased in 2020. The previous owners used her to sail around the Falmouth area and since then we’ve been sailing around Suffolk and the River Orwell as well as crossing the channel and through the canals of France and back again which was a great adventure.
We’ve made a few changes to the boat since purchasing including installing a Volvo Penta D1-30 engine in November 2020. Only 24 engine hours so far.
What work we have done in last 12 months:
New hatches – The hatches have all been serviced and two replaced.
New engine – Volvo Penta D1-30
New Tri colour light on mast (LED)
New anchor light (LED)
New washboards – made from perspex. You could add a filter if desired.
Batteries replaced with 2 new batteries
Started painting outside
Tightened steering cables to leave less play in the helm.
On deck woodwork oiled and stained.
Aft cabin repainted
Sleeps 5/6 in three cabins, forward, main and aft, accessed through the cockpit. Separate toilet with sink.
Kitchen fitted with twin hob gas oven, sink, food preparation table and two large cool boxes.
This boat has so much storage space throughout, more even than some of the bigger Westerly’s in our opinion!
– Twin mast ketch rig – roller furling jib, boom roller furling main, and mizzen. Main and mizzen sail covers.
– Stainless steel rigging. All rigging visually checked when the boat had the mast down in the canals.
– Large water tank and new electric water pump fitted.
– Twin batteries.
– Fitted with Garmin navigation, wind speed indicator (currently not working), depth sounder, VHF radio.
– LOA 32′ 6″, beam 9’6″, draft 4′ 6″, displacement 10,800lbs.
– Life raft needs a service
In solid, completely usable condition with all the basics intact.
She scrubs up beautifully and you could sail her away tomorrow without doing a single thing, as all the essentials are sound – the hull, rigging, sails, engine, VHF, Garmin, compass, etc.
The only thing to do before leaving on a longer ocean passage would be adding lee cloths and fitting the flexible gas pipe at the back of the cooker. We have bought a pipe that will be left on board.
July 2020 survey available on request as well as a log of work completed since then.
Currently on the Isle of Wight.
