Broker's Comments

The Westerly Discus was a development of the classic Laurent Giles designed Westerly 33 hull, and built in two versions. The original version was introduced in 1980, and was what became known as the "bridge deck version". This took the hull of the Westerly 33 ketch and put on an aft-cockpit with a broad, high bridge deck between cockpit well and main hatch. providing a very seaworthy feature

This Sloop rigged bilge keeled example has been well look after and maintained and is ready to go having had her hull recently buffed to perfection. She represents good value for money for a family wishing to cruise and explore
