With almost 830 launched, the Bill Crealock-designed Westsail 32 was the boat that made ocean cruising practical and affordable for sailors of modest means, with approximately 800 total hours on the 38hp Beta diesel and NO TEAK DEAKS, this has been well maintained by her owners. Blue Tale has been loved and enjoyed by its current owners and has had several upgrades done by a reputable boat yard in Sidney, British Columbia. The current owners live and work in the Canadian arctic and are unable to use Blue Tale to the full extent they would like and wish for someone else to take the helm.
