Built for the original owner by Henze Yachts in Moehnen,
Germany in 2002, Weatherly has been professionally maintained throughout her life. She
was shipped to the US by the current owner in 2015 and has been an admired
feature of the New England sailing scene for the past four years. She competed
successfully in the last two Newport to Bermuda races and has cruised
extensively along the New England coast from Long Island throughout Maine.
She is breathtakingly beautiful, fast, seaworthy,
comfortable and with her self tacking jib, remarkably easy to sail. She offers
accommodation in four separate cabins with a spacious and elegant main salon which
is equipped with air conditioning and heating. A key attraction is the
elegantly designed two berth pilot house offering high visibility shelter from
weather and providing a popular assembly point for guests and crew, under way
or at anchor.
Weatherly has been maintained continuously to the
highest standards throughout her life. New electronics and safety equipment
were installed prior to the 2016 Newport to Bermuda race and the shore power
electric was fully converted to US standards. Prior to the 2019 summer season, the hull and pilot house
were stripped of all varnish to bare wood and refinished in clear Awlgrip by
the renowned Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine. She looks spectacular
with the added advantage of being easy to maintain.
Weatherly is highly seaworthy, simple to sail and operate single-handed, while combining
ultimate function with style and simplicity.
