The Westerly GK series of cruiser/racers started with the quarter ton rated GK24 in 1976, and in 1978 the larger GK29 was introduced, which rated at half ton level. A larger GK34 three-quarter-tonner was also produced from 1980.
Designed by Mike Pocock, the first GK29s built were successful in Half Ton Cup IOR racing. About 180 were built in total, production ending in 1981. Various levels of fit-out were offered by Westerly, some boats being sold part complete, so standards of finish and interior trim may vary.
GK29s were built in two versions, the "Half Tonner", and the "Family Cruiser", the cruising version having a shallower iron keel than the deep lead keel on the racing version. The cruising version was always masthead rigged, but a fractional rig was an option on racing versions.
GK29s have high freeboard, and consequentially quite spacious hulls, with 6 foot headroom. Most are now used as fast cruisers, which can also take part in club level racing.
