Designed by Ed Dubois the Westerly Oceanlord 41 Lacondore is the perfect example of this classic British cruising yacht. Sought after for their blue water capability as much as their easy handling for short-handed sailing, these robustly built boats are on everyone's shortlist.
The Westerly Oceanlord is a real classic British cruiser that has stood the test of time. With her roomy centre cockpit, and an interior capable of sleeping eight in comfort, Lacondore represents what is just about the best in cruising yachts.
Lacondore is a well maintained, highly spiced example which has had many upgrades and enhancements since she was commissioned. Her white hull with broad burgundy stripe, white superstructure and flex-teak decking make Lacondore a very attractive yacht.
Lacondore is hull number 39 of well over 100 Oceanlords built and fitted out by Westerly Yachts to their usual impeccable standard.
Hand laminated in a combination of unidirectional, bi-directional and chopped strand mat the GRP hull of the Westerly Oceanlord is as tough as they come. Qualifying for Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) Category 'A' these boats can take you anywhere, anytime.
The 'U' shaped underbody sections, modern cast-iron fin keel and semi-balanced spade rudder reduce wetted area and promote a comfortable ride when things get rough and a sparkling level of performance.
The deck is constructed in GRP with a First Coremat core, which has enough compressive strength to permit the installation of deck fittings with simple backing plates rather than removing the core and building up GRP laminations.
The hull benefits from preventative osmosis treatment carried out in 2006 using International Paints Gelshield 200.
Main Cabin – Accessed via companionway ladder from the centre cockpit. Port side - Immediately to port is a door leading to the stern of the yacht. In front of the door on the port side is the Pilots seat and desk. In front of this is a horse shoe seating arrangement around a drop-leaf table; these seats can be converted into a double-berth.
The starboard side hosts a u-shaped kitchen area. The run along the hull to starboard is mainly tiled work surface, incorporating a lifting lid giving access to a large, top entry, refrigerated box with adjustable temperature regulator. The cool box is powered by a 12v cooling unit located in the cockpit locker. The owner has added additional insulation on the outside, and inside (removable) to minimize battery drain. A Philips microwave unit is fitted into the starboard side bulkhead at worktop level . The left hand side is a double sink which has pumped hot & cold fresh water (with back up foot pump) and also seawater via a hand pump. Beyond the sink in the same run, is tiled work surface leading to storage cupboards. A gimballed, two burner cooker/oven and grill is at the end of the kitchen area. Storage areas are below the sink and work surfaces and along two sides of the kitchen area.
Beyond the kitchen area, facing the horse shoe seats, is a bench seat which can also be used as a single berth.
A passageway leads down the centre of the main cabin to the forward heads, wardrobe and front cabin areas at the bow of the yacht.
Alarms are fitted to detect Butane (floor level), Carbon Monoxide and smoke.
A 13” digital LCD TV with Freeview and DVD player is on an extendable/swivel mounting at the Pilots berth. This can also be used as a repeater, connected to the Garmin GPS Chart Plotter Unit in the cockpit, so displaying position, track, speed, radar, etc.
A Tevion Radio/CD player is also located alongside the Pilots desk area.
The two separate stainless steel tanks for holding fresh water are located under port and starboard seating areas. Each has manual valves fitted to control which (or both) is in use, and sender units to indicate levels on dials at the Pilots berth. Each tank holds approximately 40 gallons of water.
Storage cupboards are behind both Port and Starboard seating areas and large bookshelf areas are situated above both cupboard areas. 240v sockets are located in the kitchen and other areas for use when connected to shore mains, or running the internal 3kw generator. Cabin temperature control, linked to the Eberspacher heater, is located on the forward Starboard bulkhead. The through-hull water speed log, depth and fish finder transducers are located in the forward storage compartment, Port side.

Of note, also stored here is the backup tiller, which can be fitted to the rudder stock accessible from the aft cabin should there be a failure of the wheel/cable steering.
Layout – Deck Level Deck
The deck is GRP throughout, on to which has been bonded “Flexiteak”, a PVC teak effect panelling. The Flexiteak deck was relayed in 2012.
This is approximately 6’ long with seating running down both sides. The yachts wheel steering is located to the rear of this area. A binnacle compass is situated centrally on the wheel housing, and engine forward/reverse/clutch/stop control is on the housing port side.
Garmin Autohelm controls (Port side) and engine start panel, rev counter and windlass remote plug (starboard side) are within easy reach of the steering position.
Access to the deep storage locker is on the starboard side, by lifting one of the seats.
A set of six Barient self-tailing winches of various sizes (3 each side), all with low gearing in reverse direction, are located along the coach roof adjoining the cockpit. These are for genoa sail control, roller reefing and mainsail control.
All sail control halyards are run so they enter the forward cockpit area along the coach roof, via clutch jammer mechanisms. Positioned in front of each set (Port/Starboard) of jammers are 2 further Barient self-tailing winches, both with low geared reverse drive option. Sail controls from this position are; Mainsail and Genoa lift halyards; Mainsail Roller Reefing In/Out halyards; Mainsail out/clew tension halyard; kicking strap; Spinnaker boom lift halyard; Spinnaker sail lift halyard; Topping lift halyard; rear facing lift halyard (emergency sail or man overboard hoist);
The original windscreen, forward of the cockpit was removed by the current owners and a bespoke unit to give better protection from wind and rain constructed and installed. This is a mahogany framework, with wrap around 10mm Perspex windscreen (3 sections), and 10mm curved marine ply roof, to give standing headroom.
A detachable Garmin Chart Plotter is sited forward on the Port side, under the marine ply roof (the original screen and canopy supplied by Westerly is still available, and could be restored and fitted).
Two 20w solar panels are now fitted to the outside cabin roof. A stainless steel framework leads from the bespoke windscreen to the rear of the cockpit. Removable canvas screen panels, with flexible acrylic see-through panels are fitted to this framework, to give 360 degree protection from the elements, whilst retaining good observation of surrounding seas. Rolling up and tying back these panels is easily accomplished, when the weather is suitable, and is simpler than removing.
A Garmin Chart Plotter display is sited in the cockpit above the companion way entrance to the Main cabin. This is linked in to the NMEA 2000 network, and can display windspeed/direction, speed, depth, sea temperature, etc. The Garmin Radar is also displayed on this unit, with options for split screen or chart overlay. A separate, stand-alone Garmin Fishfinder is sited on the forward panel, to the right of the companion way entrance. This gives the Helmsman a much clearer indication of the sea bottom below, and whether it is shallowing/deepening or rocky, than a depth sounder alone.
A manual bilge pump is fitted on the Starboard bulkhead alongside the steering position. A manual valve in the cockpit locker allows the option for this to draw from the bilge under the engine, or from the main cabin bilge.
