S.Y Cockaigne - 1985 Westerly Corsair 36
The Westerly Corsair is a solidly built large-volume family cruiser, big enough and heavy enough for serious offshore work, and with a remarkably spacious interior.
This magnificent Westerly Corsair 36 is a fine oceangoing sailing boat. Ed Dubois always had a flare for designing good tempered vessels with the perfect combination of good stability, speed and handling with high volume below decks. The Corsair has a GRP hull with cast iron keel of moderate length and draft, attached by marine grade stainless steel bolts to Lloyds recommendation. The wheel steering is light and positive with cables connected to a quadrant on the rudder stock. The rudder is a partly balanced spade molded onto a solid stainless steel stock. She has only recently been out of the water (October 2022) for antifouling and replacement of all the through hull fittings.
