About the GK24
Designed by Laurent Giles & Chris Hawkins in 1976 to the IOR Quarter Ton Rule, the GK 24 was a departure for Westerly Marine Construction Ltd from their usual cruising vessels, setting out to be a reasonably high-performance club racer, but also with sufficient comfort down below to have a satisfactory cruising capability. Although no longer built they still exist in quite large numbers, and are scattered al lover the world. the yacht was produced in variety of configurations: masthead or fractional rig: racing keel or shoal keel: and inboard or outboard engine.
