Waterside marine sales at Potter have an AF Pearl 38 and a few other Centre cockpit boats for sale.  Norfolk boats sales had a Pearl as well, ex Moore’s.

Just had a look at this link, one seriously nice Westward 38, and the ctr ckpt version too, so bridges are not an issue.  If had the funds, this would be a boat i would give SERIOUS consideration to.

Looks like someone has spent a lot of money on her, very smart.

I wouldn't say bridges were not an issue - The Westwards have quite a high sheerline and a fairly rectangular cross section. I would think Potter was completely out, which is probably not the case for a Pearl.

On the other hand, yes that boat does look to have been loved, and there's quite a lot of space aboard. The addition of a Nanni N4.50 is very much a plus, too.

I just wonder how many times you could have got an AF38 through Potter in the last 12 months even if you had just sat there the whole time? And got back!!

Not many is my guess - indeed I doubt I would ever bother trying!!

And also an Entrepeneur...

They're the most spacious 38ft boat you will find, though the hydrodynamics of the hull leave a little bit to be desired. Also the step up from the companionway onto the starboard deck from the cockpit is one of the maddest bits of design I've seen on a boat.

Not for me that one, poor value at that price, and underpowered for the southern rivers

Yeah it's probably a bit overpriced, and no I don't think anyone ever bought one for its performance. The hull I think must have been designed by the neighbouring Parker's Skip Hire rather than Aquafibre :default_norty: :default_norty:

The Westward at NYA looks nice - I think Mark of MBA Marine did a lot of the refurbishment work on that boat.

Of course a lot of it is 'set dressing' new upholstery, galley, dash and it looks fresh and new - amazing how this sort of thing helps sell boats and increases value even if underneath it is an ex-hire boat  I know of 3 Westwards that have been re-engined I think they had Listers in them original (maybe a Perkins).  Not my cup of tea because the free board on these things are so high to get on and off of, and the window's in the rest of the boat are pretty shallow. Instead of a lower freeboard and deeper windows.

Now the Sedan version looks good value, funny how a 4+2 berth 38ft boat can cost less than little Trixie. I am probably going to be about Brundall over the weekend talking to the service guys so will have a nosy at the boats for sale.

A Renown 36, no less.

No you don't see many of them these days! Frequently mistaken for an Ideal 40, but a rather different boat.

Cor blimey not seen one of them for years - used to have some on high with Richardson's back in the day - this was during the time of building river boats that looked fast and stylish - but forgot about letting people see much out of them or being practical to get in and out of.
