Westerly Typhoon

Brief Notes


Westerly Marine, Hampshire

The Typhoon 37 was designed by Ed Dubois in 1990 for Westerly Yachts as a "fast cruiser with ocean racing potential". She may never have been a true ocean racer, but as a fast yet easily managed cruiser she is very effective.

The Typhoon 37 was introduced in 1990, and is generally a larger version of the Westerly Storm 33. Built by Westerly of Waterlooville, Hampshire, to their usual high standards, the design was only moderately successful on the market, many people feeling that too much space was devoted to galley and chart table. These very features, however, make her an exceptionally comfortable boat for those who do not want to cruise with too many crew aboard!

With only 40 Typhoons built between 1990 and 1993, The Typhoon is rarer than most other Westerlys, but is definitely one of the best yachts Westerly ever built, if you value performance. The hull moulding was later recycled as first the Westerly Regatta 370 (94-97), and then the Ocean 37 (99-2000), with new interiors, but very few of these later incarnations were ever built.

The hull is a solid hand-laid GRP laminate, with GRP balsa sandwich deck construction, with plywood backing pads and metal plates under fittings. Westerly has always had a good reputation for build quality, and the hulls have Lloyds hull construction certificates.

The interior layout of all Typhoon 37s was standard except for the forecabin, where there was an option of a pair of staggered single berths or a conventional vee-berth, with an infill making a double berth. The yacht shown here has the more common vee-berth option


The aft cabin has a seat and storage unit, plus the double berth tucked under the cockpit floor

The fractional rig has a double-spreader tapered mast

In December 2000 "Yachting Monthly" tested the Typhoon 37, and commented: ".... a good-looking yacht, her low coachroof and tall powerful rig giving her a purposeful appearance ......" and "..... whatever point of sail she's on, the Typhoon is quick".
