Westerly Fulmar - 1981 - £29,950 
A twin-keeled example of the popular and well reputed Fulmar, with lines by Ed Dubois, Westerly's build quality and sailing schools' undiminished respect for the design's sailing qualities. 
'The current owner of 'Sandyman' has sailed this boat from new, back then as a crew member, then as a joint owner after he had been invited to 'buy in' to her ownership in 1990 and in the last 14 years as her sole owner. Initially, 'Sandyman' was based on the UK's east coast, from where she cruised Dutch, German and French coasts, before sailing to the Mediterranean and then returned to the UK, to Plymouth, from where she has sailed to Ireland, Wales and the Isles of Scilly as well as France and the Channel Islands. 
The owner's intention had been to enjoy his last years of ownership pursuing an ambition to complete an Atlantic circuit in 'Sandyman' and this fact is reflected in the boat's upgraded specification, choice of equipment and level of recent spend on some major items such as a completely new rig (mast, boom, reefing gear, running and standing rig) - just this year (2022); an Aries wind vane self-steering; un-used stays'l and 'lazy' inner for'stay behind the outer for'stay, 215W solar panel on a substantial, stern gantry incorporating the aft pushpits. All this very recent work in addition to previous works including the professional osmosis treatment and application of epoxy coating to the underwater surfaces, the re-bedding and fastening of the keels, replacement of the original engine, replacement of the original sails. Meanwhile the domestic inventory of equipment fitted includes many desirables such an efficient keel-cooled refrigeration; the re-lining of the interior and replacement of the cushions. 
Regrettably, after all this work on the boat, the vendor has come to the conclusion that he doesn't have to prove anything to himself any more and that sensibly he should 'hang up the sailing boots' in the knowledge that he's had a 'very good run' with 'Sandyman' over the last 40 years. 
We would suggest that 'Sandyman' has clearly been a 'man's boat'; that although the fundamental structures appear to be very good and the systems that are fitted are intended to be reliably simple, the choice of cushion fabric for example may not be to the taste of those with more interest in interior decor- the cabin's sole boards have not seen a fresh coat of varnish for a little while. There is no hot water system; nor a heater, but we suggest that it would not take much time and relatively little money to address these areas and in doing so one could - if one chose to - arrive at a very well-sorted and capable sailboat with an attractively finished interior at a fraction of the cost of doing it all from scratch.

Sails & Rigging 

Rigged as a 3/4-rigged fractional bermudan sloop, this particular Fulmar's spars were new in May 2022. The original Proctor mast was found to be cracked in some fundamental places and so a new Sparcraft mast and boom, together with a new Facnor roller reefing system was fitted. Opportunity has been taken to have side exits fitted to the mast for the halyards, with clutches on the mast in addition to the original clutches and jammers back at the cockpit and a vertical spinnaker pole stowage system also fitted. 
A 'lazy' deployable inner for'stay was fitted, (complete with a ratcheting tensioner) to enable an almost full-hoist stays'l to be set behind the outer for'stay with it's genoa furled. The storm jib would be set on this inner for'stay too. 
A rod kicker by Selden is fitted to be able to support the boom conveniently while reefing the mainsail. Three slab reefs are provided for. 
In common with all Fulmars, the halyards and reefing lines are led back to the cockpit. 
The running rigging was replaced at same time, including a new mainsheet with Harken blocks, coming to the original mainsheet track. 
Fully-battened mainsail by Arun Sails (1995) with three reefs and carried on Rutgerson batten cars. 
Radial cut roller-reefing genoa by Quantum Sails (2004). 
Symmetrical spinnaker by Jeckells. 
Storm Jib 
New, unused hanked stays'l for use on the 'lazy' deployable inner forestay (2022).
