I have acknowledged that I do not have the time time to continue
enjoying sailing Tide Drifter, so she is up for sale.
in 1979 this was a late production boat in the most popular design of
yacht ever produced by a British builder.
she is suited to cruising the west coast. Due to her shallow draft,
she is able to ex[pore estuaries, rivers and harbours that are
inaccessible to yachts with deeper keels. She offers accommodation
for up to six in two cabins.
Westerly Centaur was designed in 1968 by Jack Laurent Giles. His
earlier experience with bilge keel designs and water tank testing was
probably the reason for the Centaur’s good performance under sail.
The reason for their popularity is due to their safe cockpits, wide
decks, good performance and spacious accommodation down below.
Drifter’s previous owner updated pretty well everything, new
sails, reefing system., chart plotter equipment, toilet, headlining,
soft furnishings. I have replaced the gas cooker with a spirit
cooker upgraded the marine VHF and autohelm, installed a solar panel
and a stainless steel fuel tank.
she is on her mooring on the Exe estuary. I am happy to take
prospective purchasers out for a test sail.
