Westerly Konsort - 1982 - £14,500 ** NEW LISTING Draft Details**
A twin-keeled example; competitively priced to reflect 'detailing' work to be done - rather than a significant major re-build - the engine is a 1999 replacement; the standing rigging has been replaced; the sails are like new; the running rigging is laundered and stored below; the hull has been epoxied and the boat is fitted with a hot and cold pressurised water system.
Designed by Laurent Giles, built by Westerly Yachts Ltd. in 1982. 'Aries of Mylor', with her yard number of D320 and sail No. KT 393 is an approx. mid-sequence example of the twin-keeled version of the ever-so-popular Konsort. She has the centre-line mounted, double leafed table and - very significantly in the case of the twin keeled boats - fitted with the foam-formed and integrally moulded GRP lateral stiffeners in the keel attachment areas. She has the open shelves and single closed lockers beneath the side decks (aft end of the saloon). The hull's topsides were originally all white to the deck level, but at some point someone painted a blue 'sheer line' and applied the 1987-styling lines to update her external appearance.
Built by the 'phoenix' Westerly Yachts Ltd, that from 1982, was seeking to demonstrate their determination to offer something better than the products of the previous company by [amongst other things] using teak veneered plywood rather than the Sapele of the earlier boats
The keel areas are 'as dry as a bone', the teak veneers in good order and such features have been enhanced by the replacement of the original Bukh 20HP engine with a 24 HP version; standing rigging, the purchase of replacement sails and the epoxy coating of the underwater sections of the hull.
At time of writing 'Aries' has been laid ashore for six years. When she was de-commission her engine was serviced and winterised, the sails and running rigging removed from the spars and the boat generally 'put to bed'. However, externally, the topsides' blue styling stripe now need re-painting; the sprayhood's canvas needs replacing (the hoops will be fine), bright woodwork such as the tiller would benefit from re-finishing to choice and the winches should be cleaned and serviced. Inevitably she needs a fresh coat of antifouling paint. Internally, there is evidence of a rainwater leak in the forward cabin that has led to the port-hand overhead lining panel dropping down and the main saloon windows could do with being re-sealed.
