Westerly Association report;
The first Seahawk came down to Hamble Point Marina in August 1984, so as to be tried and tested in time for the launch in late July 1984 for the Southampton Boat Show. She neatly filled the yawning gap between the Fulmar and the Corsair, which had been introduced in 1980 and 1983 respectively. This gap had been created by the demise of the Discus, the last of which had failed to sell at the 1983 Southampton Show.
A good shot by the design team, who had had a lot of practice with Westerly new models.
The extraordinary thing about the Seahawk is the volume and headroom of the after cabin. This had been achieved by giving her a deeper bustle than the Corsair, and dispensing with the after heads, which left lots of extra room for the bed. The result is positively palatial, with a full size double bed, lots of floor space and a hand basin too.
In addition the cockpit floor had been moved as high as dared, which gave standing headroom under the cockpit seats, so that the galley could be placed in the walkway to the after cabin, without sacrificing anything in the way of space or height. This resulted in an extensive worktop with a tiled surface and plenty of room for a proper fridge underneath it.
So we have a smashing boat, which sold like hot cakes.
The Westerly Story by Brian Esteal & Peter Poland states; The Seahawk claimed "Long distance live aboard luxury for 7. She was certainly spacious, with full standing headroom plus sofa and washbasin in the aft cabin, acres of tiled galley worktops, a kitchen style fridge, large wrap around saloon settees, a dedicated chart table and massive cockpit locker. She also sailed well and she sold"
Practical Boat Owners David Harding summed up the Seahawk as follows; "Westerlys as a breed are widely considered to be more substantial than many modern alternatives and likely to be less troublesome in the long run.
They're built in the traditional manner with beefy frames, few internal mouldings and the joinery bonded to the hull. Their plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems, though by no means universally perfect have stood the test of time and on the whole are easy to reach and service.
It's largely because of their reputation for longevity that boats such as the Seahawk continue to command healthy prices on the second hand market.
Skathos is a much loved and updated family yacht. During our 8 years of ownership She has carried us safely & confidently throughout the North Sea & English Channel.
She is great fun to sail, warm & suprisingly accomodating for her size.
We have maintained & upgraded her with a 'No expenses spared attitude' and she has been much admired.
We are now stepping up to a bigger yacht - another Westerly... to expand our horizons & whilst sad to let 'Skathos' go we are confident she will offer her new owners many years of pleasure.
