Re: Got a plastic classic?

Recently purchased a 1971 Westerly Cirrus 22. Built in England and a very strongly built. Very stout and glass work really good. Standing headroom! The bulkheads are all in really good shape for 45 year's old. Seven, 3/4 inch stainless keel bolts for a 1400 pound cast iron keel. Needing deck and cockpit paint, refinish teak rub rail and some new hardware. Will launch in a couple months.

Looks like a great little boat! Any other shots of her?

Haha, not hardly

Those pics are as I bought her; I've taken all that crap off the bulkheads and painted the sides (where the windows are), bulkheads and ceiling white.

There's also someone living aboard full-time now ... so maybe a little more messy?

1975 Waquiez Amphitrite Build No 5

We're the third owner. First from 1975 to 2000 during which it spent 8 years as a charter boat in the Med, next owner family of five, brought it out here to Aussie. It's in really good condition just cosmetic work which we will sort out slowly

My personal fav is the Hood 38, but way too much boat for just me - and Wauquiez boats are relatively expensive, so I doubt I'll ever own one. But I always admire them when I see one

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Very few people have heard of them out here!

I keep suggesting to my wife that in order to sell we will have to take it back to Europe

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Well after losing the purchase of the Endeavour 32 (my fault, I had a very long waiting list appointment with a ear specialist unexpectedly drop through my door, so as the wait is so long, I just had to go along with it, and the poor seller was really desperate to sell, and couldn't wait the extra time), the follow on from the Irwin 32, I've found something similar, but older, and a bit bigger.

I'm not saying what it is until it is signed and paid for, but I just can't wait to get it. Holding my breath is getting to be a tough job.

Hoping to do the survey and deal around the 22nd of this month.

Wish me luck, I need all I can get.

For me optimum has always been a 32 ft boat, but basically anything 35ft or under, down to about 28ft, still has potentially sensible maintenance requirements, with enough room for comfort and carrying capacity for supplies of fuel, food and water.

If on a limited budget, things tend to go rapidly bonkers and unmanageable over 35ft imho.

Though even when budget was no object, my dream boat was always a built to Lloyds 100+A1, Rival 32.

I agree. I actually wanted a smaller boat because of cost and work but we ended up with this. We're trying to keep it really simple system-wise to ease maintenance. No generators, water makers, fancy electronics etc. Currently we don't even have hot water! Simple, but hopefully elegant

Also after 2 years in the marina, we are taking off in a couple of weeks so no more more marina fees. A big factor with a bigger boat.
