1986 Westerly Corsair 36

Petit Calivigny, Grenada

£33,653

The Westerly Corsair is a proven bluewater cruiser combining excellent seaworthiness, speed and handling, with plenty of space below decks. The accommodation layout is carefully arranged to satisfy both the long-distance yachtsman and the weekend sailor. Liaison is a fine example of Ed Dubois’ clever use of space and sailing ability. She has a large aft stateroom with en suite head, comfortable double V berth and head/shower forward, roomy saloon and large comfortable center cockpit. The port side of the saloon can be folded out into another double berth with a large pilot berth between the saloon and stateroom all of which make her seem much bigger than her stated 36’. Extensively refitted over the last few years including gelcoat stripping and re-lamination in bi-axial and epoxy of the entire bottom, Awlgrip refinishing of topsides and deck (2020), all through-hulls and seacocks replaced with Groco bronze fittings (2020), all deck fittings, hatches and ports replaced and/or re-bedded (2017), new teak toe-rail (2017), headlining replaced throughout (2020). Located in Grenada and waiting to go on her next adventure.
