Westerly Storm Cruiser 33 - 1990
'Hullabaloo' was supplied new by James Green (of this office) to her original - of just two owners from new!
With her twin keels and ability to dry out, she has always been moored on either of two moorings on the River Yealm at Newton Ferrers; one (her winter mooring) being a drying mooring at the top of the Noss creek and the other being a deep water/all tide mooring in the 'pool' at Newton Ferrers.
She was epoxy coated from new and then in 2019 this coating was supplemented using 'Coppercoat's anti-fouling copper-based system, with the opportunity taken to epoxy prime the keels' surfaces too for a smooth finish.
The mast and standing rigging has been regularly checked by a reputable local rigging firm, with all replacement recommendations carried out on a rotational basis.
Internal upholstery has all been replaced and some work done to the internal linings (although it would be fair to say that the main saloon's linings could now do with replacement) The teak and holly flooring was replaced around 7 years ago and is in good condition.
As seen by the full inventory of equipment, the current owner is having to 'hang up the sailing wellies' for health reasons, so 'Hullabaloo' is being sold with everything to be able to go cruising tomorrow.
A great opportunity to purchase a well found boat of North European specifications offering capability to go, explore and moor were others cannot follow.

Fitted out in teak-faced plywood and hardwood cappings throughout, the Storm Cruiser's accommodation was common with the One-Design version's interior, but featured many more creature comforts and customer 'optional extras' as standard. This example, being of a 1990 vintage offers more headroom above the berth in the aft cabin than in earlier 'OOD' specification boats. She offers a maximum 'Seven' berths in three cabins.
A three outlet, diesel-fired, hot air heating unit is fitted
Forward cabin: A double berth, without re-course to having to infill the berth, there is room to stand abaft the berth for access to a hanging locker to starboard and a wash basin to port. Deep storage shelves to hull sides. Light and ventilation provided by an aft opening for'hatch.
Main Saloon: A U-shaped dinette arrangement to port of the centre-line mounted table can be converted to provide a double berth, while a straight single berth faces the table from the starboard side. All cushions incorporate their supporting panels to enhance access to the lined storage lockers beneath the seating and the cave lockers located behind the back rest cushions are also individually lined.
A forward-facing, independent chart table is located to starboard with a practical vinyl-covered seat and provision for instrumentation outboard of the Navigator. A half-height hanging locker aft of the chart table was provided with a plastic, draining base to accommodate wet oilies.
Galley: L-shaped and located to port of the companionway (to be on the downhill side if hove to on starboard tack), the galley has been fitted with a replacement gas cooker (Neptune 2500), with flame failure devices to all burners. A top-opening cool box was refrigerated from new by Westerly and twin sinks are provided with hot and cold water via a mixer tap, with foot-pumped manual back-up pump on the cold water supply.
Aft Cabin: Located to port side, the aft cabin's double berth extends across the centre-line behind the engine space, with hanging locker and two opening port lights for light and ventilation.
