We are regrettably selling our beautiful ‘Bacchus’ – a Westerly Cirrus, 22ft sailing yacht. We have owned her for a couple of years, but due to work demands we can’t use her as much as we’d like.
The Westerly Cirrus is a small and popular family cruising yacht. This particular Westerly model has proven to be a successful design and well suited to coastal and island type cruising. ‘Bacchus’ is roomy for her size and very comfortable for 4 people on board. Capable of a wide range of adventures depending on your sailing style she would make a great first stepping stone for someone looking to get into cruising.
Currently Moored: Lake Windermere, Bowness on Windermere, Cumbria. She currently occupies an enviable mooring close to the National Trust dinghy park and car park.
Bacchus is a John Butler designed Westerly yacht, the Cirrus model sold 398 yachts between 1968 and 1973. This “Little Boat” is roomy, boasting 3 x 6’3”berths (with additional child size berth) with separate heads and a functional galley. She is sea worthy and easy to handle. This model is in pretty good condition for her years and has, within the last year had all the cushions inside replaced by “Goacher Sails”. She has had the headlining replaced and had a new “Lazy bag” and “boom tent” specifically designed and also made by “Goacher Sails”.
Additional specifications, equipment and information:
GRP constructed yacht with topsides in good condition and blue non-slip deck coatings. Counter hung rudder and tiller steering.
Raised coach roof giving standard headroom in main cabin. Deep self-draining cockpit with large locker built into transom and additional locker on starboard side giving access to the stainless steel fuel tank.
Sliding hatch to main cabin, with washboards.
Winter hatch cover in blue tarpaulin keeping everything dry (bit tatty now). Also has brand new, never used, boom tent also in navy blue.
Vessel powered by the original Dolphin 12hp petrol engine which is in super condition and starts first time on the button. Last serviced 2015.
The engine requires a 24v start from two heavy duty 120amp 12 v batteries. Both of which are brand new marine batteries. The second battery provides power to the depth sounder (which requires attention) instruments and lighting. The batteries are recharged via the engine alternator and further topped up from the solar panel mounted in the cockpit.
There is an additional large brand new solar panel ready for use.
There is a Mercury 2.2 outboard motor for the dinghy, which is two stroke petrol fuelled and has been adapted with a cut off strap as per safety regulations.
There is a shore power adaptor.
