70' Santa Cruz 70 '87 "Westerly"

WESTERLY, originally MONGOOSE, is Santa Cruz 70 #7, one boat later than GRAND ILLUSION, one of the most successful SC 70s. Under the current owner she has been completely updated with no expense spared. New Nelson Merek deep bulb keel and rudder, carbon mast, reconfigured cockpit with new winches in 2021, including a second pedestal for the mainsheet. Extensive sail inventory, many new in 2021. WESTERLY represents an excellent opportunity to obtain a very up-to-date Santa Cruz 70 and get sailing now.
