Kendall (Westsail) 32, 1984

Mona is a well found, well maintained cruising boat of traditional design. She was built from a bare fiberglass hull over a period of 6 years on the west coast by her original owner from a kit supplied by the Worldcruiser company, the makers of the Westsail 32. Her design is more similar to the original boats that Larry Kendall produced.

Her hull, rig and main appointments are identical to the Westsail 32, arguably the most prolific cruising sailboat ever mass produced. Her other design elements build on a rock solid concept and improve it in ways that make for a unique and in my opinion, superior, version of the production W32. The flush deck makes much more room down below and on deck, while increasing the strength of the vessel tremedously. The addition of a pilothouse and enclosed cockpit create much more comfort for offshore cruising. The A-frame bowsprit platform is a much more secure platform for sail and anchor handling. Because her hull and rig are identical, parts and spares are still easily available and supported by an active owners association and parts company run by Bud Taplin, who worked for the original manufacturer and continues to be an amazing resource for owners.

The result is an amazingly versatile vessel, which many have written praise about. She is practical and elegant, rugged but surprisingly graceful. Her design, construction, and fittings are of the highest quality, but she has proven to be affordable to purchase, own, and operate. For the last 8 years she has been owned, restored, maintained and upgraded by a marine tradesman, ABYC systems technician, and USCG licensed captain.
