Westerly Nimrod - Details

The Westerly Nimrod offers basic accommodation combined with speed and economy.
She comes with a good suit of sails and a break back road trailer which has recently undergone a major overhaul.
She is in very good condition and is currently stored ashore under cover.

There is a furling headsail system and a choice of jib or genoa

The lifting keel gives a draft of four feet when lowered which makes for great stability, and she draws a mere 8 inched when the keel is fully retracted.
This makes for easy launching and recovery.
The rudder is removable and also lifts up for launching and recovery

If used in shallow waters her depth sounder is very handy, however the keel will swing up if she touches.

The transom mounted outboard motor has been serviced this summer and starts first pull.It runs on 100-1 mix of fuel.

There is a stern boarding ladder

The mast can be raised or lowered easily and stows on the fittings supplied for transport by road.
