The Westsail goes down in history as the boat that launched a thousand dreams. She’s generally credited for starting the cruising boom of the 1970s which brought “the cruising life” out of the fringes and into the mainstream. Designed by Herb David as a heavy displacement double ender for long distance cruising, this boat is the epitome of seaworthiness; built strong and heavy with huge interior volume.
Though similar in looks and detailing to the Westsail 32, the smaller boat is a ground up redesign and features a number of key improvements. The rig has a taller aspect ratio, the keel is noticeably cut away in the forward sections improving her manoeuvrability, while the garboards are less hollow which help her track closer to the wind.
A mahogany and teak interior provides a warm glow. Headroom tops out at just over 6 feet and the boat carries 79 gallons of fresh water. From the companionway, the port side features a pilotberth tucked under the cockpit next to a small navigation station and an efficient galley. The galley has a shallow stainless sink and alcohol stove. On the starboard side, there’s horseshoe-shaped dinette with drop-down table that can be converted into a double berth and easily accommodates two adults. The head with toilet, sink and shower, separates the dinette from the V-berth and chain locker.
