An attractive and well kept example of these very popular cruisers. The Westerly Merlin was built between 1984 and 1992, with some 170 boats produced. "Ariadne" has been in the same ownership for many years and has enjoyed regular updates to her inventory. Priced to sell.
Her owner has no plans to purchase another boat so it is expected that a huge amount of miscellaneous equipment not listed here will be included in the inventory making her an extremely attractive prospect, particularly for first time buyers.
