Introduced in 1980, the Fulmar was the second design for Westerly by Ed Dubois and is a relatively high-performance cruising yacht that is no slouch. The main production run of the standard Fulmar 32 ended in 1992 with over 400 built. Despite the higher performance, the Fulmar was a very successful pure cruiser and a surprising number are still in-use as sailing school and charter boats, which is a testament to their combination of vice-free handling and robust construction. Many people regard the Fulmar as the best Westerly ever built.
KODIAK has safely taken the current owners cruising around Europe, most recent in the waters of the Northern Baltic. She has proven herself to be a reliable companion, easily handled with a short crew in all conditions. Now looking for something a little larger to extend their cruising range the current owners are reluctantly offering this faithful friend for sale.
We bought Kodiak in 2005 having sailed an Albin Vega from Glasgow to France and back, which we wanted to do more of in our retirement. Kodiak ticked our 'space, performance and budget' boxes and she has proved to be a great 'home from home' for us. We have continually upgraded her equipment over the years so that she now has everything we need for living aboard. We like to say we have sailed her from El Hierro to 'Elsinki' over the past 10 years. Whilst always able to keep up with the local competition, she has proven to be a safe, predictable and comfortable offshore yacht, cruising for days on end.
Westerly Fulmars are famously strong boats. Each boat is built to Lloyd's specification and every Fulmar is issued with a Lloyd's Register Certificate as standard, this one being SOU000382.

The main 35lb anchor stows on the double steamhead roller. Wide side-decks, spacious coachroof and non-skid paint on all surfaces make for safe movement about the deck. Handrails on the coachroof are at a convenient height. All deck fittings are either of stainless steel or a high quality marine alloy.
The deck layout is designed for ease of handling under all conditions with most lines led aft. The main hatch is recessed into the forward cockpit bulkhead sheet winches mounted on platforms aft of the main hatch. This provides a safe protected working area where all the control lines can be handled without leaving the security of the cockpit. The cockpit is large enough to allow four people to sit to windward in comfort and when sitting in the cockpit the crew are sheltered from wind and spray. A full cockpit cover attaches to the sprayhood giving fully-sealed shelter from the weather. This system has its own storage bag and folds forward, stowing in-front of the sprayhood.
The steering tiller and engine telegraph control at the aft end of the cockpit provide ease of use for the helm. Under the starboard cockpit seat is a large locker with enough room for sails, warps, fenders and all other miscellaneous gear. Lifelines and bow & stern rails are fitted as standard and there are five large mooring cleats including one each side amidships.

The two-cabin layout of the Fulmar provides six to seven berths with a large double berth in the port quarter, aft of the navigation area. Quality hardwoods and marine ply are used in the cabin construction with cream coloured soft deckhead panels and an attractive choice of soft furnishings.
Saloon -Is laid-out in classic cruising style. There are settee berths each side of the saloon table with a galley aft to starboard and the navigator's seat and chart table aft to port. There is abundant stowage in the lockers under the saloon bunks and under the open shelves behind the seat backs. The saloon table has two hinged leaves running fore and aft and with these raised there is also ample room for comfort. The fiddled centre section of the saloon table has bottle stowage beneath the table top. The seat backs of the settee berths can be lifted out and used as lee boards when at sea. The interior of the Fulmar saloon gives a feeling of warmth and light.
Forepeak -In the forward cabin there are two full-length berths in traditional V-berth layout. An infill section creates a double-berth when required whilst still retaining a decent amount of standing-room. There are storage lockers under and shelving above, running along the sides of the forward hull and a hanging locker to starboard. The forward cabin is separated from the saloon by a door. Safety access, light and ventilation are provided from the opening deck hatch.
Galley -Immediately below the companionway steps, located to starboard is a generous galley with a 2 burner gas cooker inc grill & oven. There is a rear facing, stainless steel square sink with pressurised water mixing taps plus a manual hand-pump. A top loading fridge is located in the aft cornet of the galley. The Fulmar's galley is workable both at sea and in harbour. It is a good area in which to brace yourself in a seaway and has plenty of work surfaces with sensible fiddles. The galley has a gimballed cooker with two burners, grill and oven. A crash bar is fitted in front of the stove and the cooker is secured in the gimbals by split pins. Drawers, lockers and shelves around the galley area provide good stowage space for food and cooking equipment. Located under the winch platform there is plenty of headroom over the sink and cooker.
Heads -The dedicated heads and shower compartment is located to port between the saloon and forward cabin. The base of the compartment is finished in single-piece GRP moulding incorporating a plinth for toilet and sole with a teak grating over the shower drain. The forward facing sink is mounted in side moulding with storage lockers above and below.
Hanging Locker -Opposite the heads compartment to starboard (also between the saloon and forward cabin) is a tall storage/hanging locker.
Quarter Berth -Located on the port side aft, behind the navigation area is a generous double-sized quarter-berth. The navigator's seat may still be used even when crew are sleeping in the aft quarter berth.
Navigation Station -Located to port, immediately below the companionway steps is the navigation station comprising a forward-facing seat, chart-table and instrumentation. All major equipment, such as the chart-plotter are mounted ahead and above and are easily accessed. The chart table faces forward and will take a full-sized admiralty chart folded in half. The hinged top gives access to chart stowage and to compartments for instruments etc. There is a shelf running alongside the chart table giving plenty of room for the instrument panel and VHF radio. Positioned under the winch platform there is plenty of headroom above the navigator's area, which is also well sheltered when the main hatch is open.
