W42 Auction Monterey, CA 9-12-06

Rob and Janet Sutton

Just forwarded by my Dad:


It's described as a ketch, but you decide ...

W42 hull #60 under construction


does anyone know the history on this boat?

Dave Kall

I know a little of it. Was owned by a fellow named Scott. He and his wife ailied it around the Pacific basin. Currently he lives ( I think) in Oz.

Anyone know why it's going to auction?

Bud Taplin

The boat is probably W42 #26, owned by Danny Mc Neill of Pacific Grove, CA, which is near Monterey. The boat was formerly owned by Scott West, who did a major restoration of the boat a few years back when he owned her.

I can confirm it is hull #26 - my folks went and looked. The last survey valued her at $165k (!?) and she looks pretty good to their untrained eyes. The Perkins wouldn't start - dead batteries? and the auctioneers have no clue about sailboats. They are apparently bankruptcy specialists and a comment was made that the owner spent more time on the boat than in the restaurant.

Sadly the folks won't go to the auction to tell me what she sells for!


she sold for $40k yesterday....

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!
