Introduced as the new flagship in 1989 and hoping to keep the more wealthier Westerly owners within the Westerly family the size/volume of this much larger boat meant that everything was on a much larger scale and prospective owners were much more demanding with the interior layout.
Very well manered both under power and under sail.
Sister yachts are the W490 and the Ocean 49
