1973 Westerly Tiger £6,500The Westerly Tiger is a six-berth fin keel family cruising yacht with better sailing performance than the bilge keel Centaur. These yachts were constructed to a very high standard and for this reason the older Westerly's hold their price very well. Overall the Westerly Tiger is a tough and capable cruising yacht.

The Westerly Tiger offers six berths in two cabins. The forward cabin has two single berths in the forward cabin and so the port side is slightly shorter and is not ideal for a full sized adult. The starboard side is full adult size. The main cabin can sleep four persons, by way of the double berth and two rear quarter berths. In practice due to the fact that luggage needs to go somewhere, the starboard quarter berth tends to be storage rather than a sleeping berth. Heads with sea toilet. Galley to port in saloon and fitted with a two-ring gas hob. Sink and Fridge the compressor fitted in starboard cabin locker and cooling plate fed into the cold box. The saloon is light and airy. The dining area will seat a full crew and is local to the galley for ease of catering and entertaining. It should be noted that the dining area will convert into a double berth if required. Webasto diesel heater with two warm air outlets, one in each cabin, two years old.

My family have owned the boat 28 years, with 18 of those myself as sole owner. Westerly built the boat with a pair of winches at the mast and all activity had to be conducted there. I have converted all the running rigging (except foresail halyard) to be led back to the cockpit. Similarly, although it was originally fitted with mainsail boom roller reefing, because of the sail stacker fitted, this can't be used and instead is now fitted with single line reefing again fed back to the cockpit.
