Cruisers 1977 Westsail 32

Off Market since Nov 24th 2022

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

"The Westsail 32 had a tremendous impact on the cruising world, and on the boating industry. The most immediate impact, of course, was on the 800-plus owners of the boats built. With her massive no-nonsense construction, the Westsail largely delivered on the promise of a boat that could take its owners anywhere in the world, and surprisingly many boats have in fact been sailed to exotic locations, even if performance was a disappointment for many owners. The overwhelming majority of the boats are still fully seaworthy, and hold their resale value very well. "

Designed by William Crealock, Colin Archer, and William Atkin and built by Westsail Corporation between 1971 and 1981 the Westsail 32 is actually 39'11" LOA.

WESTY was finished by a master shipwright in Nova Scotia. She has been constantly maintained and upgraded a knowledgeable owner who is a USCG certified Captain for over 30 years and a certified diesel mechanic. She is fully equipped with a Cape Horn Wind Steering Vane, Autopilot and everything you need to take you anywhere in Safety and Comfort.
