Introduced in 1980. The Fulmar 32 was the second design for Westerly by Ed Dubois. A step change from her predecessors. With her fractional rig and performance orientated design she was a relatively high-performance cruising yacht for her day. The main production run of the Fulmar 32 ended in 1992 with over 400 built. The Fulmar proved to be a very attractive and successful cruising design. Examples are still in-use today as sailing school and charter boats. A testament to their combination of vice-free handling and robust construction.
In the same family ownership since 1985. SARAKINIKO is a much loved bilge keel example. In need of some tidying and modernisation below decks. She benefits from having some significant investment in recent years, highlights include:
New Yanmar 3YM30 engine, professionally installed 2015

Coachroof portlights replaced with completely new items in 2017
Headlinings in saloon replaced 2017, forepeak 2000.
LED lighting in saloon installed 2017

A project with great potential we strongly recommend early viewing. Wintering ashore in Argyll.

'Sarakiniko was originally based in Portsmouth. She was frequently sailed across the Channel, to the Channel Islands and Brittany and to the east and south coasts of Ireland. . She has been at least three times across the Bay of Biscay to Northern Spain. She has also sailed around Ireland twice (a book by the present owners' father recounts this). Since coming up to Scotland she has been cruised extensively on the West Coast and around the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Recent sailing includes completing the Scottish Islands Peaks Race (2016), cruising down the Outer Hebrides (2017) and exploring Donegal (2018).'

The two-cabin layout of the Fulmar provides five generous single berths. Quality hardwoods and marine ply are used in the cabin construction. SARAKINIKO benefits from having had the portlights all replaced with new items in 2017. Along with the headlinings replaced throughout the below decks accommodations, main saloon in 2017 and the forepeak in 2000.
Summary of accommodation from forward:
Forepeak -Two full-length berths in the traditional V-berth layout. An infill section creates a double-berth when required whilst still retaining a decent amount of standing-room aft. Storage lockers provided under bunks and shelving above, running along the sides of the forward hull. A hanging locker to starboard aft. The forward cabin is separated from the saloon by a door. Safety access, light and ventilation are provided from the opening deck hatch.
Heads -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 forward 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, draining to the bilge.
Saloon -Laid-out in classic cruising style. Bench type 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. Both saloon settees convert to bunks with the port side bunk base extending out to create a double. 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 opening out to allow use of the table from either settee. 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.
Galley -Immediately below the companionway steps, located to starboard. Nelson two burner, grill and oven cooker, fitted new in 2010, mounted on gimbals with crash bar in front. Aft facing, stainless steel, square sink with the manually pumped cold water faucet. Top loading coolbox, located in the aft corner 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. 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.
Navigation Station -Located to port, immediately below the companionway steps is the navigation station comprising a forward-facing seat, chart-table and instrumentation. 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. VHF and switch panel located outboard of table. 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. A useful deep locker is provided beneath the seat unit.
Quarter Berth -Located on the port side aft, behind the navigation area is a generous single or cosy double quarter-berth. The navigator's seat may still be used even when crew are sleeping in the aft quarter berth.
