Introduction

It's now 1974 and Westerly were outselling every other yacht business following the success of the Centaur and the W31s so they wanted to introduce a larger 36' range and did so with the Conway family designed by Laurent Giles.

Introduced in 1975, this model was available as an aft cockpit, twin keel, sloop or ketch. They came with 4 different interior layouts and customers were allowed to incorporate their own modifications.

Sister yachts are Conway, Solway 36, Medway 36, Conway MkII, and the W35
