1986 Westerly Fulmar

location icon Dover, United Kingdom
Year 1986
Length 32 ft
Builder/Manufacturer Westerly Marine

This Westerly Fulmar is the twin bilge keel version. She is in fantastic condition and has a vast inventory. She has a fixed windscreen which provides brilliant protection from the elements - if not required it is fully removable. She benefits from a larger than standard 30hp Volvo engine. All lines are led back to the cockpit making the boat very easy to handle.  Numerous upgrades to the normal Fulmar specification to improve stowage and usability of the boat.  A really well sorted example and well worth viewing.
