1979 Westerly Griffon

Westerly Griffon - Description

1979 Westerly Griffon, sloop rig with BETA 14hp inboard diesel engine. Lovely family bilge keel sailing boat, sadly for sale due to a change in owner’s circumstances. ‘Conspikuous’ has strong sailing credentials and is very comfortable for cruising. She also comes with an array of equipment from a Cobra radio, GPS, electric anchor windlass (2015), spray hood and cockpit cushions. Conspikuous has been well loved by her current owner and is now seeking a new owner to look after her going forward. Available to view by appointment at Birdham Pool Marina.
