For sale our 1978 Westerly GK29 Gilkicker. We have insufficient time and opportunity to use this great boat as much as she deserves. She is reluctantly for sale.
Gilkicker is no ordinary GK29; she in much above average condition and fit out. Until our acquisition of her she was in the same family ownership for thirty years and was extensively refitted in 2012. She received a complete new bespoke interior and a new Yanmar 2YM15 (14hp) engine at that time. Now fitted out for cruising she is a very tidy and sound coastal ship.
She has original topsides gelcoat and exoxy osmosis treatment below the waterline. (2009). She is copper coated with minimal annual maintenance required. She received new standing rigging by Hemisphere Plymouth in 2020.
