Pageant 23

From Westerly-Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Using the classic Laurent Giles cod's head bow these boats are instantly recognizable as being a Westerly yacht. Has all the Westerly characteristics, good build quality, solid, safe and reliable. Considered part of the same group of yachts as the Jouster, Warwick, Westerly 21 (W21), and Pageant.

After the success of the Centaur, Laurent Giles was asked to produce designs for a series of smaller yachts. All of them a very similar to the Centaur but the Pageant 23 and the Kendal are particularly close sisters to the Centaur.

The Kendal is the fin keeled version of the Pageant, but only 6 were sold.
