Boat Details

A great opportunity to get out on the water in this Westerly Oceanlord 41 Bermudian Sloop, at a 1/4 of the cost (16/64ths share available). DREAMTIME OF BLACKWATER has been very well maintained throughout her life here at Berthon. A great base to be able to explore the New Forest and Solent in comfort.


Annual Running Costs:

Approximately £4.5k per quarter share per year for primary costs, and an upgrade/wish list of about £1k per partner per year.


Luxurious centre cockpit fast blue water cruising yacht with two double cabins and saloon berths for three (one double). Very well equipped with in-mast reefing, cabin heating, safety equipment to ISAF standards, etc. Social and supportive syndicate of 18 years with a comprehensive agreement would like to welcome a new partner with good or developing sailing experience. Foreign summer cruising grounds, rallies and racing as agreed annually. Built in 1996, Mark II version with king size owner’s aft cabin, extensive maintenance and refurbishment history (more than £50k spent in recent years) and enhancement programme available. Dreamtime was exhibited by the Westerly Owners Association as an exceptional example of this famous model at the 2012 Southampton Boat Show. Successful syndicate ownership since 1999.


Few yachts can claim the remarkable number of ocean passages and extensive cruises undertaken by many of the fleet of 112 Oceanlords. Most of these voyages were sailed short-handed by husband and wife crews. Combining the proven expertise of leading yacht designer Ed Dubois and the detailed high quality manufacturing standards of Westerly Yachts, the Oceanlord 41 is designed for versatility and built to last. They are famously comfortable, safe, fast and easy to sail; see YouTube “Westerly Oceanlord Yachting Monthly”.
