On stepping aboard this vessel I immediately knew it was right!
This Westerly Merlin 28 has been extensively refitted by the current owner with many components being renewed or overhauled.
Even better is the fact that the internal furnishings and linings are Westerly original and in almost perfect condition, some feat for a vessel built in 1989.
Designed by Ed Dubois, the Merlin is a modern styled yacht with ample accommodation and good sailing performance. You can be assured of Westerly's solid build quality.
This is a bilge keeled example and is as happy on mud berth as it is on a deep water mooring.
I am sure that anyone viewing this vessel will be pleased by the vessels overall presentation.
