43' Westsail 43
1983 US$ 150,000

This is a highly customized 43‘ Westsail. It was purchased from the original owner/builder, who personally (and meticulously) oversaw the worker’s who custom built this vessel. The hull was purchased from Westsail in 1977 and was under continuous construction until launch in September of 1984. The fiberglass hull is reinforced with 2“ ribs on 16“ centers with areas between the ribs filled with foam and then covered with layers of fiberglass mat. Beneath the waterline an additional layers of woven roving was also added. The vessel is very well equipped and has extensive custom features and custom wood and metal work of stainless steel and bronze. Custom stainless steel fittings on deck include bow pulpit, stern rail and lifelines stanchions. There is a safety harness attachment system that runs completely around the perimeter of the outside caving roof. This system consists of custom stainless steel pipe that allows the use to clip into it on either side of the cockpit, then go forward completely around the deck and return to the opposite side of the cockpit without having to unclip the safety harness. A custom stainless steel accessory arch is built aft over the helmsman’s seat and accommodates radar, nav, VHF and SSB antennae, air horn, overhead VHF and speakers, a loud hailer and bell. There also is a wooden swim platform on the transom. The interior has extensive custom woodwork, inlcuding tongue and groove bulkheads and overhead ceilings, inlaid drawer faces and a teak and holly chart table. The port navigation station is built-in, with a pull out chart drawer beneath. There is also an inside steering station with overhead ports for visibility aloft. The galley features a sink on a center island. This boat is built for serious offshore sailing, but is a fresh water vessel. Designed by WIB Crealock, she has a double-spreader sloop-rig with Tanbark sails. She sails like a dream. The boat is currently being used in Lake Superior, but the aging owners are getting out of sailing.
