Westerly Oceanranger 38

Brief Notes


Westerly Marine, Hampshire

Built between 1989 and the company's demise in 1999, the Westerly Oceanranger was a larger development of the Corsair 36 hull, designed by Ed Dubois as a serious long distance cruiser, but with a good turn of speed as well as excellent three cabin accommodation.

The Oceanranger has up to eight berths if required, although few would choose to cruise with that many board. The layout lends itself particularly well to a "two couples" usage, with the aft master cabin with fully en-suite heads, plus the two-berth forecabin with adjacent forward heads, leaving the saloon unused for sleeping.

The Oceanranger, at 38 feet, represents a large enough yacht to be a serious passage-maker, in comfort, and at the same time is not too big for handling in harbour and marinas by a couple.

Yachts seen here are no longer for sale - the data is online as a free information service for buyers researching boat types. THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE COVERED BY COPYRIGHT, AND MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF YACHTSNET LTD.
