Broker's Comments

The Westerly Merlin is a modern twin keeled cruiser from Westerly Yachts Offering a good amount of space below with a fair cruising speed, she is an easy boat to handle and is rewarding to sail,
With her bilge keels she can also enjoy the benefit of using drying moorings, harbours and sandy beaches.
Internally there is a double cabin aft to port , 2 single settee berths in the main saloon, one of which can convert to a double. The galley is to port with a chart table opposite and forward there is a separate double berth cabin. The heads, which are an ample size, are located starboard aft.
Below she is clean and tidy and will easily 'spruce up' with just a little sag in the fore-cabin headlining. The saloon headlining has been replaced in wood grained ply sheet.
All in all the Merlin is a roomy and comfortable family cruising yacht with coastal and cross channel potential. This one deserves a little bit of TLC from a new skipper!
