Westerly - 33
The Westerly 33's hull, designed by Laurent Giles - whether in its Discus or Ketch-rigged guise is - to many an experienced sailor - the 'Best of the Lot'. Built to Westerly's well respected standards, the W33 offers excellent internal volume, sensible deck layout, strong GRP lay-up and lots of warm woodwork. - and this example is now at a Very, very competitive price!
With up to seven berths in three cabins this was designed as a family boat, but increasingly this class is popular for use as a liveaboard, this being a cheap way to get afloat and start cruising long term, there being the usual Westerly fantastic storage space, so handy for all that liveaboard equipment. The Westerly 33 certainly feels longer than its 10.14m LOA would warrant and whether under engine or sail exudes capability.
Sadly we are acting on behalf of the estate of a local, very experienced and capable retired engineer who bought the boat in 2010 with the intention of re-visiting his old haunts in West Africa and the Mediterranean. The boat had been well cared for and following the last purchase a number of good quality upgrades were undertaken and systems maintenance/improvements carried out. However, debilitating ill health on the part of the last owner has resulted in 18 months of neglect (with the vessel laid ashore and engine de-commissioned). RAGDOLL's underwater sections have been epoxied (unknown date). The standing rigging has been replaced at some time (no documentary proof of its age available) and, although the engine appears to be the original auxiliary, detailed attention appears to have been carried out on it in recent years. Within the interior; the main cabin's headlinings have been replaced with wood finished plywood although it may be argued that the forward cabin still needs to be re-lined and in the aft cabin, the lining replacement is un-finished.
7 berths arranged in three cabins; 2 single berths in aft cabin, two singles in saloon or port side converts to double, and V berth in for'cabin with infill. Hanging lockers (2), located opposite the heads compartment. Separate toilet compartment. L-shaped galley to starboard, with dedicated chart table area to port.
Galley: Gimballed gas cooker with grill and oven / Stainless steel sink with hot and cold pressurised water / refrigerated cool box / storage cupboards and racks / blank-off cooker lid provides additional work surface
Heads: In separate compartment / Lavac sea toilet / washbasin with provision for shower, but hot water not connected in this compartment.
