The Westerly Corsair is a solidly built large-volume family cruiser, big enough and heavy enough for serious offshore work, and with a remarkably spacious interior.
These boats are quite popular for long-distance cruising or long term living aboard. The revised design was very popular and over 100 were built between 1984 and 1986. S/V Lily is #77.
S/V Lily has been re- fitted with a new 30 hp Yanmar.
