The Westerly Fulmar is a fast family cruiser with with all the usual Westerly virtues of solid construction and seaworthiness. This 1984 example is very comprehensively equipped, and overall is in much better condition than you would expect for her age. Her engine is also substantially newer than the hull, and she has relatively new sails. After being unused throughout 2015, she is now ashore and will remain so until sold, the owner having to give up sailing for health reasons.

Sailplan

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, with vice-free handling and useful accommodation space. Many people regard the Fulmar as the best boat Westerly ever built. 'Yachting Monthly' in a used boat review in October 2015 described the Fulmar as having ".... a lovely boat to sail in almost all weather and sea conditions. She hasenough weight to carry her through an oncoming sea and is stiff enough to carry full sail up to the top-end of force 5. Her helm is light and positive and she tracks well off the wind....".

Seen here in January 2017, the hull and deck have been cleaned and polished, and the boat "shrink-wrapped" to keep the deck from leaves and general grime - she is stored under trees! Running rigging has been stripped off and cleaned and sails valeted.
