Broker's Comments

This is a very good example of the lovely Westerly Corsair. Designed as a blue water and coastal cruiser, this model gives you spacious room below with ample berthing, a lovely aft cabin and loads of saloon space. The head room is very nearly 2 meters! This particular boat has a great canvas cockpit enclosure which adds another dimension to the vessel. She appears to have been very well looked after, is neat and tidy and comes with a comprehensive sail wardrobe, good navigation equipment and a well maintained engine.
To quote the experts, "The Corsair delighted all who sailed in her with her excellent light airs performance, and astonishing interior volume." "Their place in history is assured by length of service; Corsair Is - 106 in 4 years, Corsair IIs - 52 in 4 years. Behind the figures lies the perfect cruising boat. Big enough for 8 people even on the morning after the night before, handy enough to be single handed, sensitive enough to sail in the lightest of zephyrs and tough enough to sail round the world."
