The Westerly Oceanlord is a comfortable and extremely capable offshore cruising yacht of which many have completed transatlantic passages. This flagship of the range presented at the boat show in 1988. She was prepared for the ARC race but a last minute charge of plans meant she was sold to the third and current owner. Having had a quick Mediterranean cruise she was put into storage for 15 years. She has now been recommissioned and is ready to be sold.
The aft cabin centre cockpit layout gives an enormous amount of accommodation. The cockpit is safe and easy to access lines and operate all the reefing points. A number of updates over the years make her a reliable and strong starting point to purchase a good long range cruising boat.
