Broker's Comments

It is such a delight to be able to offer such a fabulous boat. Even the most pedantic viewer will struggle to find anything to complain about. The inventory is extensive, the electrics are modern, every inch of running rigging looks new. Every hatch and every corner is neat, clean and tidy - the wiring throughout is superb. The spline drive has been subject to one of the recognized modifications on the early Volvo 2002 engines, in this case a square drive replacement, which has been inspected and found to be sound in 2018. .. The sails are clean and crisp. The engine and gearbox have been serviced and will be recomissioned when put back on the after winter. There is also a new (March 2018) rigging report, certifying that the rigging is all in good order.
In fact this is me holding back from gushing too much - she is just that good. I can guarantee that there is not another Westerly Tempest in this condition anywhere. She must to be seen to understand just how good she is and that she is worth every penny of the asking price!
