Perhaps the best known of the Westerly ‘sporty’ models and still competitive, Strider is a great performing racer cruiser offering good accommodation for weekends away. The boat is great fun to sail and feels very stable and responsive even in rougher conditions. Rigging and engine kept in good condition and the rest of Strider is in excellent condition for her age with a number of features added and replaced in the current ownership; Including new sprayhood (2017); new UV strip for Genoa (2015); new fresh water pump (2018); new Standard Horizon GX1300E VHF (2018); Liferaft serviced and re-packed in Canister (2017); new Metz antenna and RG8X coax cable fitted for VHF (2016); New 2 blade 16’ Propeller (2017); new treadmaster fitted in previously worn patches (2017) and new navigation lights (2017).
