Westerly Nomad Part 2

Dennis Rayner designed the GRP bilge keel Westerly 22. She was similar in concept to his hard-chined 20’ plywood Westcoaster, except the 22 had a round bilge. The bigger boat could be fitted with either a Gunter or Bermudan rig, according to the choice of her prospective owner prior to the boat being built. The Westerly Nomad was a development of the 22 with an almost identical hull, but her internal volume was larger; this was on account of her higher and longer cabin moulding. I believe I’m right in saying that new owners of Nomads could choose to have their yachts fitted with a diesel engine or an inboard outboard engine.
