Westerly Konsort

The Westerly Konsort was designed by Laurent Giles as a mid-sized boat between the 26 foot Centaur and the Longbow/Berwick/Pentland 31 foot range. She was introduced in 1979, and remained in production until 1992/93, with over 800 built.

 

The Konsort rapidly overtook the larger boats in popularity, as with 15 inches more beam she offered virtually as much space in a cheaper package. From the mid-80s however, prices increased significantly, and by 1992 the boat was selling at over £50,000, and becoming uncompetitive with cheaper imports.

Early Konsorts were fitted with Volvo engines and a fold-down saloon table on the bulkhead, but, later boats had Bukh engines and a central fixed table.


As standard, the Konsort is a stiff boat that is often regarded as slightly undercanvassed in light winds, although overall she is not slow.
