Westsail 43 - USD 75,000


This extaordinary yacht has been a cruising home for her artistic owners for the last 24 years. Warren and Robin used their artistic flair to transform the yacht inside and out in 2000.

Her systems and interior are designed primarily for a couple. Her elegant, custom interior was featured in Cruising World Magazine (http://www.cruisingworld.com/how/sanctuary-within) .  The custom interior and all systems, including all plumbing and electrical, were new in 2000.  Her interior is the finest joinery featuring solid plantation teak with bamboo throughout.

All deck hardware is bronze... they collected and fashioned many items. The stanchions were their own design, the pushpit, pulpit and genoa tracks are also custom silicon bronze.

Last haulout April 2017, routine hull care and topsides and decks re painted

A truly beautiful home afloat and a proven world cruising yacht.
