Broker's Comments

This Longbow has only had two owners over 32 years and clearly has been well looked after.
She is very spacious for a 31 footer, at a good price and still regularly sailed.
Designed by Laurent Giles, and introduced in 1972, the Westerly Longbow is a solid fin keel cruiser. The same hull moulding was also used with a centre cockpit deck to produce ketch-rigged versions. Over a thousand of the various versions were produced, of which about 260 were Longbows. Other models using the same hull are the Westerly Berwick, with sloop rig and bilge keels, the Pentland, with centre cockpit, ketch rig and bilge keels, and the Renown, with centre cockpit, ketch rig and fin keel.
As with all Westerlys of the period, they were built to Lloyds specifications which meant that the building processes were rigorously monitored and all materials had to be approved by Lloyds in order that a certificate could be issued. Although now long out of production they still represent excellent value for money, and offer an excellent combination of price, performance and accommodation space
