An excellent spot, but how do we know that this is a unique, previously unknown example? With all respect, there is so little here that, for example, we don't even know what engine it has?

This boat "Excalibur" which is offered for sale, is not a Westerly Sealord.
It is a Westerly Oceanlord.
The Sealord LOA is 38' 6" and the Oceanlord LOA is 40' 6"
Also one can tell at a glance by the difference in the portlights, which in an Oceanlord are narrow and elongated in comparison to those of a Sealord which are wider. Nice boat though, and not expensive.

Well, I don't want to argue, but I think I need to take up an alternative position! The Ad states 39', and although the photo isn't too good, I think I can see it says "Westerly Sealord" on the coving line. Having said all that, I'd really like to identify her, whatever Class...

That is some boat for the money. Protected against chickens as well. you see quite a few boats that have been anti-fowled these days. I didn't know it was a problem :?

There is no way of truelly knowing for discrepancies such as the same sealord being renamed, unless we have all the sail/ hull numbers. It will never be possible to track every sealord, I don't even know how many were officially launched by the westerly yard.

It's fun finding them though :D

I emailed te advertiser with a query, might clear it up :wink:

Sounds like you aren't a member of WOA! If you were, and had a look at your copy of The Westerly Story, which is the de facto bible, you would know that there were 42 built :)

I am trying, on behalf of WOA, to build a comprehensive record of "known Westerly's". This will benefit the Association, and membership into the future. I look for snippets of information such as this to enable us to build this archive such that WOA becomes the hub of knowledge that members can turn to long term. It is true that there is a considerable body of information held by Trafalgar Yachts, and for now, that remains the first place to approach if you need information on your own yacht.

In the meantime, we encourage anyone who owns or has an interest in Westerly yachts to join WOA. A strong and vibrant Owners Association can only benefit owners into the future; if for no other reason than to keep the name to the fore in yachting circles, which in turn helps to maintain resale values, to owners benefit.

Thank you for making this new knowledge available, and we look forward to the result of your email :wink:

Good evening, this is the reply I received:

I confirm that this a Westerly Sealord. The number I can give you is J 27.
Regards, Jolyn

I think J 27 is the hull number as against the sail number, I'd think a later sealord from the production run (1983-87) would have a higher number, but that is just my logic :P

Jay my folks are the owners of a westerly 33 and prior to that we had a centaur. although not strictly speaking a member I consider myself a bit of an anorak :D

Thanks for that. J27 would indeed be the Yard Number (often mistakenly called a Build or Hull) number. Likely (but not conclusively) the Sail Number too.

Hopefully, your folks are members?

Nothing wrong with a bit of anoraking; I am similarly afflicted.

All the best

Hallo Westerly owners,

sorry for my english. I came from germany and i am proud to have a new second hand Westery Sealord.
It is nice to see more Sealord owners from this beautiful boat.

For three weeks i buy the Sealord MORIAN in Holland.

The Sail Number is SD36.
The hull number is J-36.
She was build in 1986 and are in good condition.
She stays in south holland Veerse Meer. This is between the Osteshelde and the Westershelde near by Vlissingen.

I hope i hear from more Sealord Owners.

Best regards

Dirk

Hallo Philip,

thank you for your welcome. I am new in the Westerly Owners Association. Before i buy the Sealord i took some informations from there.
Pin Mill at the east coast is a lovely place. I was two times there with my older yacht Leviathan.

Another Sealord for the list: Akora Be, registered in Nantes and seen moored in Rochefort on 11/09/2012, so unable to advise sail number or any other details. Very smart appearance, windscreen (don't know whether this was standard as I'm not familiar with the Sealord but am capable of reading the model name on the hull band).
