Westsails Produced In Australia Under Licence

Robert Coomber

I am looking for anyone with information on the genuine Australian 33ft built westsails. I had acquired an 1985 Westsail 33 in Oz built by Westsail pty ltd in Kenwick Western Aust. I seem to be getting negative responses from US westsail owners who cannot believe they were built outside the USA!

Hi Robert,

Write to Bud, if you haven't already. He's the one in the Ask Bud section here, or, better yet, e-mail him directly. His e-mail address is listed on his website at www.westsail.COM

If he hasn't already addressed your question, he should definitely be able to tell you.

I did answer him, and to my knowledge Westsail never did licence any other company to build boats under the Westsail name. I checked with Snider Vick, the original owner of Westsail, and he said he certainly did not, however he did not know what the group that took over after him may have done.
