Ed Parker purchased the Westsail 39 molds at the auction in 1980, and after building a few of the boats here, he shipped the molds to Taiwan, and a yard there built a few more for him. The yard then contracted with another company to build boats for them from the molds, and that company named their boat Fairweather Mariner 39. I don't know how many they imported, but the one I saw at a Long Beach boat show was very well constructed. I still have some of the Fairweather Mariner brochures.

If you are interested, I know of a partially finished Westsail 39 that is coming up for sale. The owner has passed away, and his widow now wants to sell the boat.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
