Kelpie:D is a safe stable and dry boat, her accommodation is clean and comfortable. She sails really well and has taken us on extended tours around the Scottish coast. She benefits from a powerful and reliable Vetus 3.09 engine that we have kept well serviced and maintained. The mainsail is in good condition, the Genoa is being sent for a new UV strip this autumn. She has been wintered ashore for the last 10 years or so and is currently ashore near Oban.
Below decks, the woodwork has been re-varnished and all seating re-upholstered. The sea-cocks are all in good condition, those in the heads were professionally replaced with Blakes 2021.
Last survey 2016 is available.
Westerly Merlins are well known to be really good boats to sail with fantastic accommodation for the size of the boat.
