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 one of the very rare wheel-steered examples, and has had a lot of TLC in it's present ownership.

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, 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.

Over the years Westerly's brochures varied in their description of the large berth aft of the
chart table - mostly they described it as a double, but other brochures did call it was a
very large single, which is how we would describe it.
