1974 Westerly Tiger

Walton on the Naze, United Kingdom


The Westerly Tiger is very similar to the well known Centaur, although slightly shorter it has a little more beam, so interior space is similar.  The fin keel configuration gives better performance than a Centaur.  The robust construction of Westerlies of this era could be described as built to last.  And so they have; and will continue to do so for a long time hence.  This good example has been fully refurbished and is presented for sale in really nice condition.
