Owners Comments: “Due to family changes we will sell our heavily refitted Westerly Oceanquest CC. The boat is very well maintained and ready to sail around the world, since we planned on sailing her all the way from Italy to New Zealand. However, now she will be sold in the Caribbean. We are the third owners of this 1993 sailing yacht. Not only us, but also the the previous owners put in a lot of effort to keep her handcrafted interior beautiful and to obtain her classic British style and flair. We spent two years equipping her with all the technical and safety features needed for ocean passages and offshore cruising and have not stopped upgrading and maintaining all our equipment ever since we moved onto the boat and started our long distance cruise in July 2021.  Westerly yachts are known for their high quality and safety standards, which we can confirm from our first hand experience. The Oceanquest was built as a family cruiser that can easily be handled by one or two people, while providing enough living space for four people. The center cockpit layout with its protective spray hood kept us dry in any weather and sea condition. Due to its fin keel shape the boat is very stable even in rough and choppy seas.

Westerly Group Ltd. Brochure: 
The Oceanquest answers the demand for a centre cockpit version of the well proven and successful aft-cockpit model. But it’s not just the deck that has changed. [?] In truth, this is a new yacht in the range. On deck, in common with all the Ocean range, teak decks, roller furling headsail and self-tailing winches are standard on this yacht, emphasising Westerly’s commitment to cruising in comfort and safety. Teak decks are probably the best non-slip available, quite apart from offering a look of quality and traditional atmosphere. The roller headsail keeps you off the foredeck when the weather worsens, letting you shorten sail safely without exposure. Self-tailing winches let you trim sheets and take in reefs with the minimum effort, simplifying a vital job if you are sailing shorthanded. Our centre cockpit arrangement gives a deep cockpit well clear of flying spray, but close to the feel of the boat, so that your sailing pleasure is heightened, while the comfort of the seating and the protection this layout gives from the elements is ideally suited for long cruises. Below decks, new-found space has been utilised to create an all-new after cabin with a central double berth, the toilet and shower compartment being between the after cabin and the saloon to give the best of both worlds; en suite facilities or shared as you wish. A passageway forward leads you past the navigation area to the saloon, where the U-shaped galley gives ease of use, plus excellent communication with the saloon. The spacious saloon features a curved settee to port, opposite [?] two easy chairs to starboard with a beautifully crafted table between. Dining or just spinning a yarn under the cabin lamp, Oceanquest’s saloon is the ideal social centre! Right forward is a double cabin with its own hanging locker and stowage, well suited for friends or family, closed off for privacy, but within easy reach of the facilities of the rest of the yacht.
[?] The Oceanquest’s Ed Dubois-designed hull gives a remarkable combination of accommodation volume and sailing performance, but with stability, build quality and safety as top-of-the-list priorities; a starting point for plans for serious cruising. “
