Brokers Comments

The Westerly 33 Discus is a world renown long distance cruiser designed by U.K. architect Laurent Giles.  Built in the U.K. under very high standards, the Westerly 33 holds the record for a fiberglass yacht to have successfully sailed the furthest into the Artic Circle (Bob Shepton on Dodo's Delight) attesting to her sea handling abilities and quality construction.  The covered bridge-deck in the cockpit adds additional room while cruising or out on the hook entertaining crew and guests.  "SWAN" has had only one owner since new.  The owner has paid great attention to her maintenance and updated her throughout his 34 year tenure.  If you're serious about finding a turn key sea worthy vessel or even just a day sailor that will turn heads "SWAN" is certainly a boat you'll want to see.
