Brief details


26' 0"



The Westerly Fulmar is a fast family cruiser with all the usual Westerly virtues of solid construction and seaworthiness. 'Yachting Monthly' described the Fulmar as having ".... perfect manners - a light touch on the tiller, good balance and straight running". This example is Part I registered, has a recently replaced engine with low hours, good sails, good headlinings and a good inventory including a full cockpit "camper" cover and an electric windlass.

Introduced in 1980, the Westerly Fulmar was the second design by Ed Dubois for Westerly, the first being the smaller Griffon 26. It was intended as a replacement for the Laurent Giles 31-footers (Westerly Longbow, Berwick, Renown and Pentland), but was a substantially higher performance yacht, so much so that they were used for match racing and race training. The main production run of the standard Fulmar 32 ended in 1992 with over 400 built, but a very few Fulmar 33s were built up to around 1996, these later boats having a modified transom with 'sugarscoop' boarding platform.

Despite the higher performance, the Westerly Fulmar was a very successful pure cruiser, and a surprising number were still in use till very recently as sailing school and charter boats, a testament to their combination of vice-free handling and robust construction. Westerly always advertised the Fulmar as sleeping 7 adults, as well as claiming that the saloon table would seat eight. We regard this as a 5/6 person boat, unless you want to be very friendly.

Many people regard the Fulmar as the best boat Westerly ever built, and although we might think the rarer and bigger Typhoon is even better, the Fulmar is certainly a very fine sailing yacht.

Westerly described the quarter berth, the forward part of which provides the chart table seat,
as a double, but it is actually a wide single 6' 3" in length. The saloon berths are also 6' 3" long,
and the forecabin berth is 6' 4" long with the infill, tapering forward.
Saloon headroom is 6' 1" aft, slightly lower forward.

This Fulmar is understood to have had a fairly major refit in 2010/2011 including an osmosis treatment to the hull, a replacement engine and standing rigging. The age of the sails is not known, but the good condition indicates they could well be similar aged.
