The Westerly Renown is a solidly built family cruiser offering five to six berths in three cabins. This yacht for sale has been in the present ownership for just over 30 years, and is for sale now only because of a bereavement. She has a newly installed (and not yet run in the water) reconditioned Volvo diesel, good sails and canvaswork, including a full cockpit canopy with frame. The hull itself is in good condition with low moisture levels on a recent check.

Sailplan

Westerly Marine built about 250 Renowns between 1972 and 1979, the Renown being one of four models sharing the same 31 foot hull moulding. The design was by Laurent Giles, the hull showing it's obvious family similarity to the smaller Centaur. As with the smaller Centaur, sailing performance is actually rather better than you would expect from looking at the hulls, especially as the Renown version of the 31 ft hull has a fin keel. All these Westerlys were solidly built, with the hulls moulded to Lloyds standards, and every hull having a Lloyds certificate.

When introduced they were regarded as medium displacement - though compared to most current yachts they are fairly heavy. Add to this a powerful diesel and you have a sensibly priced family cruiser offering very useful and flexible accommodation. "Yachting Monthly" has described them as ".... safe, steady, all-weather cruisers".
