Description

Westerly GK29 Family cruiser/racer suitable as a fast passage maker or for club racing. There have been many modifications over the years and she had her engine replaced in 2008 with a larger Volvo 2002. Furling gear has been added for the headsail and the main now sits in a boom mounted lazy bag. Both sails are by Saturn and are in the region of 5 years old. Below can sleep 5/6 with ease and offers good standing headroom. New Tack Tick instruments.

Overview

The Westerly GK29 was a natural progression from the successful GK24. Introduced initially as a racing craft she proved very successful at all levels on the Solent. She was then offered as a family cruiser racer and during the 4 years she was in production 182 were built.
This particular model is the racing version and has the deeper (1.80M) lead ballast keel making her stiffer, the slightly longer keel stepped mast giving a larger sail area and the aluminium toe rail.
Over the years and during various different ownerships she has been adapted to a more cruiser/racer version. Self furling headsail, stack pack for mainsail, sprayhood and cabin heating have allowed the owner who likes to go fast have a more family/couples orientated yacht that is easy to handle with a small or inexperienced crew.
Engine was replaced 2008 for a larger Volvo 2002 and the navigation instruments have been overhauled with a new Standard Horizon colour plotter added 2016 and Raymarine wireless wind speed and depth instruments added 2017.

Immediately to starboard is the galley with a gas fuelled stove with 2-burner hob, oven and grill. Adjacent is a stainless steel sink with cold pressurised water, a small preparation area and top loading coolbox. Good cupboard storage for supplies and bespoke glass and cup storage.
Opposite the galley is the chart table with  chart storage, switch panel and instruments including Navtex and Sailor VHF.
