Arrow is a classic Westerly Longbow 1973. She is an ideal first boat with good accommodation for up to 5/6 people. She has a deep cockpit which makes her feel very safe. I am happy sailing with 4 adults. She is a dry boat – we do not get waves in the cockpit.Sailed regularly on the solent, she got a top 20% finish in Round the island race in 2017. I have owned Arrow since 2014.She is big enough to cover longer distances without being too big for someone new to sailing. She will do 5 knots (we did 50 mile Round the Island race in 10 1/2 hours with the right wind).Length overall 31ft9ft 6in beam.4ft 6in draftShe is fin keel and 6 berths. Tiller steeringNew Marine power 327 engine installed 2016 with less than 200 hours – comes with some spares. Last Serviced 2018. She will do 6 knots on engine. Engine starts first time.Bottom was cleaned in 2018 and been Anti Fouled ready for 2019.New Cutless bearing and dripless propshaft seal in Nov 2018 – prop was polished and antifouled New forestay in 2016 (I had to reassemble the Roller furler to do this). The standing rigging is generally in good condition – I believe it was replaced in 2008 when Arrow did a transatlantic crossing – the keel bolts look shiny as well.Sails are good – replacement Furling Genoa and main in 2015. An inner forestay is fitted which we use for a small white storm sail.She has 1 reef fitted – which I have found to be enough when sailing in the solent.I converted the boom roller reefing to slab reefing and fitted a new gooseneckSelf tailing winches (harken 32). Key ropes are led back to cockpit. Sprayhood(2017), Stack pack and autopilot included. Epirb, dsc vhf, NASA clipper wind and duet.Manual Windlass and 15kg Bruce anchor – I think there is up to 50m of chain in reasonable condition – I have not measured this but there is a lot.Hot (mains power 30L calorifier) and cold water with electric pumpNew cushions 2016.
