1995 Westerly Oceanquest

location icon Canvey Island, United Kingdom
Year 1995
Length 35 ft
Builder/Manufacturer Westerly Yachts Ltd.

The Westerly Oceanquest is fast becoming one of the most sought after cruising yachts in its class thanks to the superb accommodation combined with excellent Westerly build and high-quality woodwork. 'Hestia' must be one of the best examples in existence and is a great alternative to a Moody 35 or Hallberg-Rassy 352. She has clearly been meticulously maintained during her current ownership of twenty years (including upgraded headlining throughout) and her condition has to be seen to be appreciated. An impressive inventory includes diesel heating, electric anchor windlass, wind generator, upgraded navigation equipment including AIS radar, holding tank and more. She is only for sale due to her owner retiring from sailing, presenting a rare opportunity to acquire a yacht of this calibre from the best period of one of the highest regarded British cruising yacht manufacturers.
