Westerly 22s were built between 1963 and 1967 at Westerly Marine Construction Ltd, formerly Beacon’s Boat Co., founded by Commander Denys Rayner. These four berth GRP triple keel sailing cruisers were designed by him. They were developed from his 21’ plywood West Coaster of which about 60 were built. Early Westerly 22s were rigged as Gunter sloops, but by popular demand, later ones were mostly Bermudan.
In 1966 Westerly Marine came up with a larger upper moulding for the 22 and renamed her Westerly Nomad*. Instead of being open plan, a bulkhead was added to create two cabins. Evinrude outboard engines were the preferred auxiliary, but new owners had the option of having an internal engine.
