Re: westerly konsort

The Westerly Konsort was build in several types. Generally all Westerly are strong boats for a long live circle. I do own a Westerly Pentland bi-queel and I am satisfied.

I own a westerly Konsort duo. I'm 100% satisfied and the Lloyd's rating doesn't hurt either. Only 107 made. Not a money maker for the manufacturer -- they over-invested. Safest yacht I've owned.

When others pay for a yard crane, I'm "hauling" courtesy of the tide.

It doesn't help so much when the tidal difference is only a foot in the waters where I'm cruising :-(

Low tide is mostly a function of latitude.

Any of the Westerly's would do you just fine... how well its been looked after is another thing... the small ketches are a matter of taste..
Only PITA with them is the head lining which tends to need replacing.. never understood why they used it

Re: Westerly Konsort

In these years most shipyards used this type of head lining.

Re: Westerly Konsort

westerley yachts went out of business because they made their boats to strong which made them no profit so think about it do you want a strong yacht then westerley is your answer. I have sailed in loads of different ones and they are by and large good sailing boats that will get you there but not quickly but there again you sail to be onthe sea.
