Westerly - Merlin

REDUCED..1984 Westerly Merlin in good condition throughout. The Westerly Merlin was the second design Westerly commissioned from Ed Dubois with the aim of higher performance and a more modern hull than the Laurent Giles designed Konsort. Although smaller than the Konsort the Merlin has a well laid out interior with a good sized double aft berth and is often regarded as generally faster than the Konsort. Antifouled Nov 2015, hull polished Nov 2015 Now lying ashore.
