Seafari is truly a "one of a kind" Westsail 32. Originally purchased by the head of the Westsail Owners Association in 1977, she was then custom finished by a master craftsman over 14 years and the workmanship is outstanding! The interior joinery is beautiful; finished in 7 types of hand selected and matched hardwoods. She is of the last version which has the crowned, "Crealock" deck plan with molded in hatches and propane locker, flush mounted lifeline stanchions, etc. She also has the newer one-piece hull mould which was redesigned by Crealock with a finer entry and fuller stern. She has 500 pounds of additional ballast added at time of original construction. This is not your "typical" Westsail. Close inspection of this beautiful vessel will reveal a number of very well engineered upgrades and additions that make her arguably the best possible choice for a cruising couple in the under 100k price range. Don't miss the opportunity to view this extraordinary cruising boat !

In 1996 Seafari entered the Annapolis to Bermuda Race class 5 and WON. She also on corrected time beat all boats in class 4 and all but two in class 3. She arrived in Bermuda Harbor the same time as a Bermuda 40.

Seafari has sailed around Cape Horn, through the Panama Canal and has been to the Islands. She has been lovingly maintained and has had many upgrades such as:
  • All exterior brightwork is currently being redone (July 2011)
  • Vinylester bottom (1995)
  • Engine has only 1298 hours
  • Entire boat rewired (1999)
  • New main, Dutchman system (2007)

This boat was custom built for a very discriminating owner by a master craftsman. The interior joinery is beautiful; finished in 7 types of hand selected and matched hardwoods. All cabinet doors are teak and have louvers for ventilation. Poplar ceiling strips are installed on all exposed interior overheads, and ash ceiling strips are on all exposed hull surfaces.
Good ventilation is provided with 10 large rectangular bronze opening ports, a large reversing forward hatch over the forward berth, as well as a large reversing center hatch and two dorades. In addition five Hella fans have been fitted for air circulation. For heat, a Taylor Diesel heater is fitted on the main bulkhead to port. This is a very attractive unit, which provides ample heat under sail or at anchor. For additional dry heat while running the engine an automotive heater is mounted under the navigation table. This unit in combination with the insulation will warm the entire interior in almost any weather.

Forward cabin is a V-berth laid out as a double berth to port and a single berth to starboard. There are opening ports on either side with a large overhead hatch which offers great ventilation in the V-berth. There is a forward hatch which is truly unique in that it has a double layer of Plexiglas that allows ventilation when the hatch is closed. This eliminates stuffiness when raining and when the boat is closed. An insect screen for the hatch is secured overhead. When privacy is desired, a door closes off the V-Berth. There are 3 large storage lockers under the berths and additional bins and lockers that make for great clothes storage and there is even a shoe locker.

Aft of this cabin is a spacious head area on the port side with a custom Corean molded sink and counter. High quality Scandvik plumbing has been used for the shower and faucet. The head has two sets of doors - one gives you the choice of closing off the passage to create a larger head/shower area and changing room. There is storage above the sink and below. On the stbd side is a large hanging locker and bureau with a shelf above. There is a teak floor grate with a molded shower pan with a pump that discharges into the sink, eliminating another through hull.

The main cabin/salon area is open and has a long settee to port and another on starboard; both make great sleeping berths. The settees are covered in plain cream fabric and have striped removable covers. The dining table stores out of the way against the bulkhead. Behind the table are a wine rack and a place for wine glasses. Great storage is found behind and under the entire settee area. Bookshelves and 2 additional storage cupboards are on the port side. The starboard side has a large raised open storage area that could also be used as a small berth.

The galley is on the port side. See below for more details. Opposite the galley on the stbd side is the nav station. Features of vessel include:

  • Taylor Diesel heater

Deck & Hull:

Seafari has been hauled every winter. The hull is original gelcoat and is in excellent condition. The entire boat is insulated with closed cell foam insulation above the waterline. All deck hardware has been recently rebeded. All thru hulls and ball valves replaced (1998), except cockpit drain thru hulls where only the hoses were replaced. All exterior brightwork is currently being stripped and cetoled. Side decks allow easy passageway forward and aft. High bulwarks and extra high lifelines provide comfort and safety. Aft SS stern rail has been extended to surround the cockpit for additional safety.

Note: Hard Dodger not currently installed constructed of vinylester resin with 1/8" lexan side windows and two 1/4" opening safety glass windows forward. There is also a windshield wiper in the middle that can clean either side. The dodger is unique in design as the original canvas dodger was used as the mold so it has the appearance of a fabric dodger with all of its compound curves. The advantages over fabric: strong handholds in the front and sides; visibility, and water tightness. It is strong enough to be walked on and it supports the sun awning, which covers the entire cockpit.
