Twin keel boats are were popular in the UK in particular because marinas as we know them were rare. Most boats were moored in drying harbors. When the tide was out they sat on their twin keels. Westerly was probably the most prominent builder of fiberglass boats in the UK for several decades. They were not real fancy but were solid boats that were affordable. Many had inboard diesels, in boats as small as 21 feet. While they were not speed demons they were good sailing comfortable boats. My first production boat in 1972 was a 1967 model Westerly 25 twin keel with a Volvo MD-1 diesel. I loved the boat and spent an entire summer sailing BC's coastline. I also owned a twin keel custom 35' boat in the late 80's and early 90's. Twin keels have the same stability of a single keel boat, all else being equal. They have a bit more wetted surface than a single keel boat but the difference is marginal. No boat that size with much of a cruising interior is real fast.

Here is the link to the UK Westerly site with the specifications on the Warwick
Westerly Owners Association

And here is the Westerly Owner's group on Yahoo - I am a member, out of nostalgia I guess. Westerly-Owners : Westerly Owners Group

The boat you are buying looks like a good value if you are in for some work.


Here is a pic of a Warwick with the standard window arrangement.

Sidney777, Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Mitiempo, Thanks for the info. I am already a member on yahoo groups. I will join the Owners association once I take ownership. They might sell it before I return in June. I also have a copy of the sales brochure that the owner sent me.

Does it have a title ? If it does not, it can be very difficult or maybe not in California.
Maybe you can get a salvage title. I have asked in Illinois and it is a long 3 yr process and other states in USA it is almost impossible. I always forget to ask seller till the last thing.

Sidney777,

The owner has the title and current registration for CA. It was in one of his ads on CL. I did ask to confirm.

Glad to hear you are going for it. You will be buying a tough little hull that should have a long life left in it. It is far tougher than typical boats of this size. (Except for the Flicka, as mentioned upstream, which sells for an astronomical price!) I concur with the others who say not to get into what special modifications and accessories you want yet. You have a way to go before you'd need them. Get the boat done basically for sailing and then after you have some experience with it you will know more about what you want to do. With a boat this small going simple is a virtue!

Really pleasant to be visiting these forums again and seeing so many past and current Westerly owners!

Should I go ahead and replace the standing and running rigging while it is apart? I am well under my budget or at least I should be. I plan to keep the boat at least 5-10 years. Pros and cons of changing a boats name? The current name is "Sea Puppy". Not sure what I would change it to. Just seems kinda tame to me.

DB, If you pm me your email address I can forward you the brochure. It has a nice layout diagram at the bottom.

I would make sure the standing rigging it wore out before I changed it. Usually standing rigging has a long life span. The running rigging also has a long lifespan but given the age of the boat it will probably need upgraded if it hasnt already.
