When introduced in 1983 the Sealord was the largest yacht in the Westerly range. Designed by Ed Dubois she was the queen of the Westerly fleet. With a production run between 1983 to 1987 only around 42 were built over the four year period. Constructed in the normal robust Westerly fashion they quickly proved themselves as capable offshore, centre cockpit cruising yachts.
A much-loved example the current owners have enjoyed cruising Tighmara in the Mediterranian, France and Scotland. Finding the boat to be safe and realiable no matter the conditions. With a recently installed Beta engine and epoxied hull she offers a great base for somebody willing to invest some TLC.
Wintering afloat in Argyll and available for viewing by appointment.

"Westerly should be justly proud of their flagship. Ed Dubois has combined good performance and handling with a large volume interior-and without the latter being too obvious from the outside. Westerly have used the space sensibly and with considerable thought for the owner. Overall, we regard the Sealord as an extremely effective performance cruising boat".
Yachting World, May 1983

"Proudly the flagship of our fleet. A true blue-water, ocean-going yacht. Accommodation below for up to ten people. Two cabins with en suite heads and shower. All the space and luxury you would expect from a yacht of this size".
Westerly Yachts Boat Brochure

"She was Westerly's boat-show display yacht in 1984/85. First launched in 1985 she spent the first two years of her life in the Solent. She was then sold to a Scottish customer who kept her for over ten years before I purchased in 1998. As an RYA examiner, I operated her as a school boat for the first 4 years, then liveaboard for the next 5 years in the Red Sea, Canaries and Greece. Coming back to the UK I have cruised the west coast of Scotland since 2012".
