Remarks : The Westerly Berwick was designed in response to the demand for 31-foot bilge keelers in the mid 70's. The Westerly Berwick's long waterline length gives her a good turn of speed while the transom stem provides a roomy and safe cockpit. The raised coachroof increases the volume in the boat allowing full standing headroom right up till the forward cabin. A 2020 survey report is available on request.
