Notes

Also known as WESTSAIL 11.8, FAIR WEATHER 39, FAIR WEATHER MARINER 39, MARINER 39. As the WESTSAIL 39 it was introduced just at a point when Westsail Inc. was approaching bankruptcy.
P & M Worldwide purchased the molds from the Westsail auction, built a few kits, then shipped the molds to Taiwan and had two boats built there which they imported to the US. They then gave the molds to the yard, who later contracted with Fairweather Mariner to build some for them (See MARINER 39).
All together, it is thought that around 30 boats of this design were completed. Of those, 13 were called Westsail 39.
Shoal draft: 4.67'/1.42m
