Astrid Therese – Westerly Longbow 31′


Designed by Laurent Giles, and introduced in 1972, the Westerly Longbow is a solid fin-keel cruiser. Approximately 260 were built, including centre-cockpit variants, to Lloyds specifications which meant that the building processes were rigorously monitored and all materials had to be approved by Lloyds in order that a certificate could be issued. Although now long out of production they still represent excellent value for money, and offer an excellent combination of price, performance and accommodation space. Astrid has been in her current ownership for 2 years and is reluctantly up for sale, during which an extensive refit was undertaken, including new: • Headsail • Stack-pack mainsail handling • Sprayhood • interior upholstery and carpet • Engine raw water heat exchanger • Ships radio Standing rigging was checked and tuned. Previous owners have re-engined Astrid with a Beta 20hp, and have added safety features such as fuel cut-off, fuel/water separator, Garmin GPS, log/depth instrumentation. Saloon and cockpit accommodation is more akin to a 35-footer, and Astrid is safe and sure-footed in a blow.
