Westerly Fulmar's were designed with bilge keels and modified fin keels. The bilge keel version is listed as 31 ft 10 in length, a beam of 10 ft 11 in and a draft of 3 ft 11 in.

The boat's construction is thick hand laid fiberglass over wood ribs which line the hull's interior strengthening it and reducing flex. Its balsa and plywood cored decks are covered with a product named Treadmaster, a sectional cork colored non-skid padding that insures topside footing. All deck hardware was bedded to modern specifications and its fasteners were covered with fiberglass reducing the possibility of deck leaks, however, this practice results in difficult component replacement.

Westerly Fulmar’s rugged bilge keel construction and moderate displacement was intended for Inland, Bays, Sounds and Near Coastal cruising, especially, where ebbing tidal swings frequently ground boats. The bilge keel provides better motion comfort in the open water than the fin style but its stability angle is slightly diminished.

This is a stable boat that can be enjoyed in 3-7 knot winds but sails best in 11-16 knot winds reefing at 17-21 knot winds.
