Westerly Conway

Designed by Laurent Giles, in the same general style as the Longbow and other smaller Westerlys, the first Westerly Conways were built in 1974, and at the time were the largest model Westerly produced.

The Mk I Conways had a interior with quite a lot of exposed GRP inner mouldings, but from 1978 onwards the Mk II boats had a much more attractive all-wood interior (though there are still GRP mouldings in place under the woodwork in places).

The Westerly Conways were built for a time with a choice of sloop or ketch rigs, the ketch selling in greater numbers. The same centre-cockpit hull and deck was also used for the Solway which had twin bilge keels. Production of these variants ended in the late 1970s.

With a different deck moulding, aft-cockpit versions of the hull were sold as Medways (fin keel) and Galways (bilge keels). Westerly Conways continued to be built until 1983, when they were superceded by the Corsair. For a very short time the last of the Galways and Medways were sold as Westerly 35s.

The one obvious difference between the Conway and the smaller Laurent Giles designs for Westerly is the absence of the bow knuckle. Most of the boats sold were ketch rigged.

Most Conways had the Mercedes OM636 engine. Delivering 42 hp, these engines are smooth and generally very long-lived and reliable. Some later boats had 36 hp Volvos.
