About this Westerly Seahawk 34


Westerly Seahawk 34 - 1988 - £37,950

A late model fin keeled Westerly Seahawk 34 (Sail No. SK100), that is beautifully presented and benefits from a whole host of replacements and upgrades during the current and previous ownerships (over £14,000 worth in the last two years alone), topped off by the current owner who is a currently serving professional marine engineer, and who has been through this vessel's 'mechanicals' with a very fine tooth-comb to satisfy the high standards he sets for his family's sailing requirements.

The Seahawk model has always proven popular for cruising; the combination of indulgently spacious accommodation, rugged construction and seaworthiness has ensured this design's indisputable success, with examples having cruised far and wide. Under power, they are a delight to handle in tight confines.

'Savigny' was grit blasted and subjected to a 'full' osmosis treatment with a five year guarantee in 2008, finished with an application of 'Coppercoat'. Her underwater sea valves are reported to have been replaced at the same time, presumably including the associated skin fittings.


The centre cockpit format enables up to seven berths in three cabins, with a class-beating, large master cabin aft and 6'4" headroom in the main saloon, combined with a generous galley and chart table that is independent of the main saloon seating. Cushion fabrics are what were described as 'Westerly Salmon Velvet' and the cabin linings are of 'Arctic white' setting off the teak and ash finished bulkheads and ash head panels.

By way of entertainment facilities on board; A CD/radio unit is fitted and two flat screen televisions are fitted (one in main saloon, one in aft cabin) together with a new masthead- mounted antenna.

For'cabin:  Twin 'V'-berth, with in-filling cushion to provide a double if required. Deep fiddled shelves to hull sides, with hanging locker to port. Lewmar hatch over (lens renewed and crazing free) and large side windows to coach roof sides for a light and airy feel.

Heads Compartment:  Located to starboard, again fitted with a large fixed window to the coach roof side, supplemented with an opening hatch over for light and ventilation. A Jabsco marine flushing toilet (renewed 2008) is fitted and provided with a stainless steel  holding tank with 136 litre capacity. A new transfer valve was fitted 2019. Basin supplied with hot/cold pressurised water via a mixer tap with a pull-out shower head, 12v shower tray pump with operating warning lamp (both new 2019) 

Hanging locker:  A dry, half-height hanging is fitted opposite the heads compartment.

Main Saloon:  Single settee berth to port (with 'trotter box' beneath the aforementioned  hanging locker) with U-shaped seating to starboard around a centre-line mounted, double leafed table. Closed and shelved lockers are fitted beneath the side decks, with deep fiddled shelves between. The under-berth spaces are all dedicated to storage too. The seat cushions' supporting foam was been replaced in 2008/9. An-infilling panel, with cushion, enables a double berth if required.  

Chart table:  Located to starboard aft within the main saloon and facing aft, the chart table is provided with its own dedicated navigator's seat. A deep-fiddled shelf outboard accommodates pilots and other large size publications, while an extensive array of navigation and sailing information is displayed by instruments that are bulkhead-mounted ahead of the Navigator. Some provision for wet oilskin hanging was originally made immediately inboard of the Navigator's station, draining to the main bilge and within convenient reach of the companionway.

Galley:  L-shaped and running aft beneath the cockpit's port-hand seating, the Seahawk's galley was always notable for the sheer size of work surface available and the front-opening fridge. In this instance the fridge has been replaced with a Waeco CR65 unit in 2009 and the original cooker was replaced with a Neptune 2500 by Plastimo in 2007 and supplemented by a 240V AC Panasonic microwave oven. Twin stainless steel sinks are supplied with hot/cold pressurised water via a mixer tap and there is a foot-pumped cold-water back up pump.

Aft Cabin:  Notably generous for a 34' yacht - even today - the aft cabin is well lit with large fixed windows and overhead hatch for ventilation. This particular example has an opening portlight to the cockpit well too. The double berth is offset to the starboard side, with seating and hand basin to port side. A shelved and hanging locker to port too. A flat screen TV is mounted on the forward bulkhead over the foot of the double berth

Mechanical and Electrical systems

The Volvo Penta 2003 is the original engine - rated at approx. 28 BHP and indirectly  cooled. A new heat exchanger replacement was reported to have been fitted in 2012. The engine has been closely inspected and stripped down as necessary by the current owner and separate and comprehensive summary of work carried out to the engine (from early 2018) is available by request. Suffice to say, the view was taken that it was better to spend £1000 on the existing engine and utilise the owner's professional skills and thereby enable funds to be devoted to other, more pressing replacements about the vessel.
An Exhaust temperature alarm was fitted in 2019

The engine drives a three-bladed propeller (2010) that replaces the original 2-bladed one, via a conventional stainless steel shaft. A dry seal by Volvo is fitted to the inboard end of the stern tube and the P-bracket mounted 'Cutless' bearing was renewed 2017.

The steering system was the subject of an overhaul during the winter 2019/20, with the cables and chains all lubricated and the autopilot's ram removed and overhauled and its mounting brackets cleaned and re-painted.

Electrical System

Three lead-acid batteries are fitted in two banks (domestic services bank with 2 x 100A/hr batteries dating from 02/2018), the engine cranking battery is also a replacement, but receipt for its supply has not been found. A rotary selector switch is fitted to isolate or link either bank to either function. The batteries are charged by engine-driven alternator (bench tested in 2018) and/or a 240V AC battery charger that is battery sensing and step-charge capable. A split-charge relay is also fitted to ensure that the engine cranking battery is prioritised.
A Nasa BM1 Mattery monitor display is fitted

12V DC distribution is controlled and protected by a KDD circuit breaker switch board that was reported to have been refurbished by KDD themselves in 2013.

A 220-240V AC shore support system is fitted, with immersion heater, ring main and battery charger all provided with individual circuits. A galvanic isolator has been installed (2011) to protect the system from shore-based ground faults.

The 240V AC lamps seen in the internal pictures are to be included in the sale of the vessel.


     Freshwater - Stainless steel tank with 300 litres max. capacity.

     Fuel            -  Mild steel, painted tank with 160 litres max. capacity.

     Blackwater Holding  - Stainless steel with a reported 136 litre max. capacity.

Spars and Sails

Designed as a Bermudan masthead sloop on the more desirable single spreader, aluminium spar by Selden (badged as a Kemp Mast), with a replacement 'Regatta' roller reefing system by Rotostay (2009) fitted to the for'stay. A rod kicker to support the boom when reefing without re-course to the topping lift dates from the same year.

The standing rigging was replaced in 2008 (documented as being in May of that year), when the cranked U-bolts, to which the aft lower shrouds are attached, were replaced at same time.
