Hi – this is a listing for my Westerly Cirrus 22ft sailing boat/cruiser/yacht, Jean-Mary. This was previously listed as an auction, but I’ve put it back on as a Classified listing to encourage people to view before bidding.The boat is up for sale as I just haven’t had the time to use it often enough – Windermere is a 3 hour drive for me and work/other commitments have made it impractical. Boats need regular use and maintenance and this one needs a new owner who will have the time to give her the attention she needs. General data: https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/cirrus-22-westerly Not sure of the exact year, but they were apparently made between 1968-1972.I went up to the boat yesterday (23/02/20), so have posted current photos and took lots of short videos to share – see links below. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to give a realistic picture of the boat, so please watch the videos and read the listing – I’m hoping all the information is there. I’ve owned the Westerly for around 16 months. I bought her from a bloke in Liverpool and paid £2300. I had her transported to Windermere, where she’s been on a swinging mooring ever since, around a 10 minute dinghy trip from Ferry Nab. Whilst I know my way around a boat and have done plenty of dinghy sailing/crewing, I’ve never actually sailed Jean-Mary. My intention was to learn, but I just haven’t had the time to do so. I’ve done lots of chugging up and down the lake on the engine, just enjoying being on the water in those stunning surroundings. I believe she is set up for single-handed sailing.The first few photos are from when the previous owner had the hull cleaned and anti-fouled and from when she was first launched on Windermere in 2018. I’ve got a photo of the invoice for the work on the hull and for a new electric bilge pump that was fitted. 18 months of weathering means she is not in such pristine condition now, but the videos show the current condition really well. The hull is still extremely clean and shiny, with just a bit of algae that needs brushing off.

A thorough clean is needed – I’ve given a few sections a wipe down with just a sponge/water and she doesn’t look too bad when the green has been removed. The grey anti-slip sections have been hand-painted. There was about a cm of water in the stern bilge when I visited – not deep enough for the bilge pump to even bother with (and that was without the automatic bilge being left on over the past 4 months) – a very dry boat. The cockpit cushions need a proper clean, a couple of the locker lid hinges need attention and the wooden grate on the floor is broken – all shown in the videos.Engine – diesel Volvo Penta (MD1b I believe) with shaft drive. It started yesterday after a lot of persuasion! This was after being left for 4 months without being started, so I was pretty chuffed really. It thuds away as you will hear in the videos, but is economical and has never missed a beat. It re-started straightaway after I’d run it for a few minutes and switched off. No auxillary engine. There’s an onboard diesel tank with the filler in the cockpit floor. The new owner may need to charge the battery to get it back up to full strength.Interior – there’s decent standing headroom – I’m 5′ 9″ and can stand up straight in the main area, which is rare for a boat of this size – nice not having to stoop! There are 5 berths officially, but I’d say 3/4 in comfort. The table drops down to form a small double, there are 2 singles/a double in the forward cabin and a single to the stern/port. The cushions could well be the original ones and have seen better days. The carpets are frayed/grubby and a fresh set would look good.Fixtures and equipment:- sails – the main is furled around the boom and under the sail cover. There’s a foresail, but not in action as one of the inserts connecting the poles for the furling system snapped during transit, so this has been removed. It means that the foresail will need to be adapted and hoisted in a more traditional way, presumably up the forestay. I believe the pole insert could be replaced with a clever bit of DIY, but that would be up to the new owner to decide. – a further sail in a bag – not sure what this is? Maybe another main or fore? – a Genoa that looks to be in really good condition, in its tube bag. Whisker pole.- compass, electronic log/depth gauge- switch panel for lights, bilge, radio etc.- electronic bilge pump- various fenders, ropes, bucket etc- spray hood + a dodger (the other seems to have blown away!)- VHF radio – switches on but I’ve never used it- interior lights working.. not sure about external lights – forgot to check. – fire extinguisher- gimballed cooker – internal sections fell out during transit and I haven’t tried to put it back together. – gas bottle in one of the cockpit lockers. – 2 sinks that need a proper clean. Tap but not sure about the pump.. Onboard water tank, but I haven’t used/investigated this.- sea toilet – never used (can’t use them on a lake!) so will need checking if the boat is moved to the sea. – various bits n’ pieces in lockers… what I think is an outboard bracket, an autohelm device (I think?!), anti-freeze and engine oil etc. – boarding ladderOnly what is listed is included. There are some items in the photos/videos that are not included as they don’t belong to me or need to keep them. Mooring – fees are paid until 31st March 2020. Fees for 2020-21 (from 1st April) are £932.69, which you can pay in 5 instalments up to September 2020. The mooring does not automatically come with the boat – new owners have to apply for a mooring at the Lake Wardens office at Ferry Nab. However, I spoke to one of the Wardens yesterday (they’re very helpful) and he was pretty sure that the new owner would be able to take on my mooring if they wanted to – they just need to fill the application in and wait for it to be confirmed. Strictly speaking, I own the mooring tackle, but will include that free if the new owner takes the mooring on. Alternatively, the new owner could apply for a mooring elsewhere on the lake. Either way, you should be able to leave the boat where it is until 31st March/until you have sorted something. Best to call the Wardens for more info: 01539 442753. I chose to use Ferry Nab as there are good facilities there – cafe, toilets/showers etc. not to mention the Wardens and the services they offer – I think 2 lift-outs per year, raising the mast etc. are included in the mooring fee. You can also apply for a dinghy rack (£117) per year and a parking permit (£190). You can also access the Westerly mooring from the other side of the lake, launching a dinghy from the bank and it would be a shorter trip across the water from there. No trailer. The bloke who transported the boat for me from Liverpool has his own boat on the lake and is really helpful/knowledgeable – charged me a really reasonable rate for transportation too. Dinghy/tender/outboard – I use a 2.65m Suzamar inflatable dinghy with a Mercury 4hp four-stroke outboard. This is NOT included as it’s worth around £700 as a package. I’ll list it separately once the Westerly has sold or will consider offers from whoever buys the main boat if they are interested. Please message to view. I can’t be driving up to Windermere every other day as it’s too far, so I will try to organise a few viewings on the same day. I’ve been totally honest and shared as much information as possible to give a true picture of the boat – please no time-wasters – I’m looking for a quick, no-hassle sale. Cash or instant bank transfer on collection only. I’ve seen these boats in worse condition than mine going for around £3k, so this could be a bargain for someone!Many thanks for looking!
