The Konsort is one of Westerly's most long-lived designs with 700+ built over a 12 year period. She was designed by Laurent Giles following a long line of successful designs for Westerly. She is a well packaged 28' yacht with safe wide side decks, large amounts of storage space and good engine access. Handling is exemplified by control lines being feed to the Cockpit making her easy to operate short handed. 'Virgo' is generally a well-maintained example of the class, however a recent survey (March 2019) has revealed a list of advisories which will require addressing and hence the owner has decided to reduce his price significantly to allow for a new owner to deal with any repairs. A copy of the surveyors report is available. 'Virgo' can be viewed at our yard here at Newhaven by appointment.
