This Westerly Conway 36 Ketch is a Laurent Giles designed centre cockpit yacht that was built in the UK in 1978 and has subsequently sailed the seven seas with at least two circumnavigations under her keel. She has been in her current ownership since the late 90's and has been sailing Australia's east coast but is now offered for sale to a new owner seeking a strong, spacious and sea-kindly vessel.

"La Jonquille" has a surprisingly high freeboard providing loads of headroom below (up to 6'6") and generous accommodation including a comfortable saloon, large aft cabin with excellent ventilation and a forward V-Berth. The head is located just aft of the forward cabin and has standing room and a gas instant hot water system installed. The galley comprises sink, stove and oven and a deep top load eutectic fridge / freezer by Freezetec and plenty of storage spaces throughout. The forward facing Nav Station is well appointed with the master switch panel, 12' Raymarine Touchscreen colour Plotter including Radar and instrument repeaters.

Constructed in glass fibre reinforced polyester the Conway has a minimum oÍ 12 ounces per square foot oÍ glass mat (3600g/sq m) on the topside, which increases to 26 ounces (7800g/sqm) at the keel. Woven rovings are used in areas of stress concentration and balsa wood sandwich construction is extensively used in the deck. All load bearing fittings have backing plates or appropriate sized washers. The interior moulding forms framing and ribbing to stiffen and strengthen the
hull and the cast iron keel is fastened with stainless steel studs that were replaced in 2004 and steering and rudder gear are also made in stainless steel. She has a fin keel and skeg hung rudder which has had the bearings and seals replaced.

In 2003/2004 "La Jonquille" underwent a rejuvenation with a new Volvo Penta MD22 engine installed. At the same time she had the fuel tank replaced with a 133 Ltr Stainless Steel tank and has also subsequently had an oversize diameter shaft fitted with an Autostream Feathering S/S Prop and PSS Dripless Seal. The engine has genuine 540 Hrs and was serviced in August this year. At this time all wiring was replaced with tinned copper and the new switchboard was installed along with Raymarine ST60 instruments and the 12" Plotter.

The Spraydodger has been recanvassed and also had new clear screen put in. Additional covers include a full cockpit cover and boom bags on both main and mizzen. Many more upgrades and replacements have been done over the years.

Overall "La Jonquille" presents in very good condition, she is currently insured excluding the rig and is offered at a "sell" price that takes this into account and represents excellent value for money whether you are looking for a classic ketch, sea-kindly offshore capable cruiser, coastal and bay weekender for the family or simply as a comfortable live aboard. We have a recent insurance survey report available for serious enquirers and she is offered "as is" which is to say, Survey, Mechanical inspection, Rigging inspection and Sea Trial conditions are welcome but no further negotiation will be entertained beyond the initial agreed offer.

This is a great opportunity so for more information or to arrange an inspection you'll need to call Geoff at Euroyachts Australia on .
