Burnham-on-Crouch Essex UK|
The Westerly Longbow is a solidly built cruising yacht, offering very good accommodation and storage combined with confidence-inspiring sea-keeping ideal for long-term cruising. 'Arc de Guerre' has clearly been very well maintained, has a good inventory which includes diesel heating, hot water, holding tank, and is very well presented for her age. Only for sale due to a change in her owner's plans, a survey from January 2021 is available on request and she is ready to sail away!
