The Pageant was designed for Westerly by Laurent Giles in 1969, as a replacement for the earlier Nomad. Production ran from 1970 to 1979, the yacht shown in the photographs here being one of the last of the 550 or so built. A very few (reportedly just six) fin-keel versions were also produced in 1976, these being called Westerly Kendals. As with all other Westerly Marine yachts the Pageant was very strongly built to Lloyds specifications, which meant that the building processes were rigorously monitored and all materials had to be approved by Lloyds in order that a hull certificate could be issued.

The Pageant shares the same styling as most other Westerlys of the period, such as the smaller Warwick, and larger Centaurs and Longbow, etc.

The Pageant offers five permanent berths, one of which can be turned into a (rather small) double, by lowering the saloon table. The saloon table also removes, which opens up the interior space considerably. The example shown here is one of the later boats, and the interior has quite well finished wood trim - earlier boats had much more plastic mouldings and some laminate finish.
