The Oceanlord and Sealord

Extracts taken from the Westerly Owners Association & Originally supplied by Michael Schmidt Yacht Brokers, Formerly known as THE WESTERLY BROKERAGE.

(First published in WOA magazine No. 58, Spring 1997, this updated version was published in WOA magazine No 68, Spring 2002)

By 1982 the Conway was looking a little long in the tooth to be the flagship of the new Westerly range, so that a 39 and a 36 were commissioned from Ed Dubois. The first to be built was the Sealord 39, exhibited for the first time at London 1983.

By the end of 1984, the bulk of Sealords had been built. The Sealord revels in heavy weather. You can push a Sealord far further than her little sisters in tough going. In squally conditions she will take the gusts in her stride and always come back for more, feeling stiff, manageable and wonderfully powerful.

In due course Westerly turned their design team on the interior in search of improvements. Happily for Westerly, Mike Parham, their chief designer at the time, is an imaginative and experienced man. He came up with the idea of enlarging her after cabin by cutting the mould just behind the cockpit and adding 15" in length. This allowed the barely adequate cabin to become a stateroom, with more room in the heads, a better berth, and more standing room.

In addition, Westerlys first sugar-scoop was attached to the stern. There are two good things that such a seemingly unimportant appendage gives. One is easy and safe access from a dinghy, and for bathers; the other is waterline length. The safe access is no small advantage in a high-sided modern yacht, especially as those who can afford such luxuries are rarely in the first flush of youth. Waterline length, of course, gives more speed, directional stability and improved motion in lumpy seas.

Thus was the Oceanlord born. For the Company, the improvements meant more than 100 sales over the next 14 years. The customers got an enduringly popular yacht with world girding ability, which will wriggle into the tightest berth, and can be managed easily by small and inexperienced crews.

The rig has remained the same since the first Sealord with a simple sloop rig and a pretty well bullet-proof single panel mast (one set of spreaders).

The Oceanlord can put 8 knots behind her with empty lockers and a clean bottom. Handling in crowded marinas is calm and precise for both boats, with plenty of acceleration and stopping power provided by the 3-bladed prop.

If you have always owned Westerlys, then this is the one to aspire to. For those looking for that elusive combination of performance, handling and interior volume, there are only three boats to consider. According to the depth of your pocket, you should buy a Griffon, a Fulmar or a Sealord/Oceanlord. These are the Three Peaks of Westerlys achievements on behalf of the cruising yachtsman.

Owners Comments;

We have owned CARA MOR for 9 years and during this time have enjoyed sailing her and the places we have visited. She is a very sea kindly comfortable yacht.

She is easily handled with a man and wife team. She performs well on any course of steering with a very versatile rig. The inner forestay will carry a second jib or the storm jib. .She will sail downwind under twin head sails poled out with the use of the roller reefing when the wind increases in strength.

The hydrovane self-steering gear will steer her on any course required using the wind. So no power is required.

Alternatively she will sail using the electronic inboard autopilot.

She has adequate power generated by the two solar panels.

She is safe at anchor with adequate chain and ground tackle together with the automatic windlass.

Her accommodation is voluminous which allows space for crew with the benefit of the privacy of her private aft cabin. She is capable of carrying all crew and all the gear needed for safe fast and comfortable passages. 

She has radar and an AIS transponder. There are two stations for the chart plotter, one in the cockpit and one on the chart table, so on longer passages the navigation can be carried out in comfort below especially when using self-steering.

She is a strong, safe, forgiving, capable go anywhere blue water yacht with a sea kindly motion. She sails extremely well and is capable of fast passages.

She has been a delight to own and sail. We have been very proud owners.

She has been much admired and been constantly updated and maintained.
