Westerly Seahawk

Brief Notes


Westerly Marine, Hampshire

The Seahawk was designed by Ed Dubois as a spacious family cruiser. They have very good accommodation, with a particularly good double aft cabin, and the solid build quality and generally high standard of interior joinery of the later big Westerlys.

The Westerly Seahawk 34 was introduced in 1984, and in 1988 a 'sugar scoop' transom with bathing platform was added to create the Seahawk 35. In 1990 the design was modified slightly again to become the Oceandream, which then in turn became the Oceanquest, all on the same basic 34 foot hull and deck design. The same hull with a different deck moulding was also used on the aft-cockpit Falcon.

At various times Westerly offered different interior finishes, with light ash or teak bulkhead veneer interiors, and either wood veneer or vinyl as saloon headlinings.

Despite the fairly high profile of the coachroof, the Dubois-designed hull has a reputation for good sailing performance, and the interior space is excellent, the layout particularly popular for use by two couples, although there are a total of six berths if the saloon is used for sleeping

Two Seahawks with slightly differing fit-outs in the saloon - later boats having more timber and lockers

As with all Westerlys, the yachts have a good reputation for basic build quality, and the hulls have Lloyds hull construction certificates. The quality of the joinery and fit-out of Westerlys improved steadily over the years, and by the time the Seahawks were being built was quite luxurious

Normal engine access is via a removable panel in the walkway to the aft cabin,
though the companionway steps can also be removed if necessary.

Whilst the forecabin is relatively small, and often not fitted out to the same standard as the rest of the yacht, the aft cabin is excellent for in-harbour use, with a very good double berth, seating, and a vanity unit

The cockpit has one very deep locker on the starboard side. The aft deck houses two large lockers, one for gas bottles, and the other a deep wet locker for fenders or other deck gear
