Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Designed by Laurent Giles, and introduced in 1972, the Westerly Longbow is a solid fin keel cruiser. The same hull moulding was also used with a centre cockpit deck to produce ketch-rigged versions. Over a thousand of the various versions were produced, of which about 260 were Longbows. As with all Westerlys of the period, they were built to Lloyds specifications which meant that the building processes were rigorously monitored and all materials had to be approved by Lloyds in order that a certificate could be issued. This vessel looks like she has been well kept by the current & previous owners over the years who have kept her ashore every winter, she was re-engined in 1996 with the popular Beta engine meaning parts should be readily available.
If your looking for a strong built 30 footer that is gonna keep you safe then look no further.
