The Tempest 31 is one of the later generation Westerlys designed by Ed Dubois, with a modern hull design with two double aft cabins. These yachts also have a higher quality interior finish than most of the earlier Westerlys. This 1988 example is the twin aft cabin "Original" version, with a large heads compartment forward.

Sailplan

The Westerly Tempest 31 was designed by Ed Dubois in 1987 as a smaller version of the racing-orientated Storm 33. Thanks to broader aft sections it acted as a more cruising-friendly alternative to the existing 32 ft Fulmar design, the Tempest having two proper double aft cabins instead of the somewhat small double quarterberth of the Fulmar. The Tempest also had rather higher quality joinery than the earlier Fulmars, which were conceived as racing-capable boats. The Fulmar continued in production in parallel with the Tempest.

As with two aft double cabins there was no need for a forecabin, the forward part was split into an excellent full-width heads, and a large sail/gear locker with access from both heads and deck. This was called the "Original Option" for the Tempest design, this yacht for sale being of this type.

At the end of 1988 Westerly offered a choice of layouts, with an alternative design with a single larger aft cabin, aft heads, and conventional vee-berth forecabin. This option provided a much larger cockpit locker, and was called the "Classic Option". Most boats sold, however, were of this "Original" twin aft cabin type.

 

Just over 100 Tempests were built between 1987 and 1993, when the hull design, interior and rig was reworked and renamed the Regatta 310, which nominally remained in production until 1997, though in those six years only five were built. By then Westerly sales were being hit hard by cheaper French imports, and the company was in trouble, eventually closing in 2000.

The lack of a forecabin on this version of the Tempest allows a spacious (for a 31-footer) heads compartment, with a large sail and gear locker accessible through the door in the forward part of the heads, plus a deck hatch.
