Burnham-on-Crouch Essex UK|
The Westerly Merlin is a family cruiser with excellent performance but more displacement than modern lightweight equivalents. A comfortable interior sensibly laid out for family cruising. 'Just Magic' is the popular twin bilge keel version and has been very well maintained and updated in recent times, including new engine in 2010, hull epoxied 2020, new canvas in 2020 and many of the hatches and windows replaced as well as the headlinings. Possibly one of the nicest Merlins available.
