Designed by Laurent Giles, the Westerly Berwick is a development of the 26 foot Westerly Centaur and is one of Westerly's family of 31 foot cruising boats which include the Longbow, the Pentland and the Renown.

Within this range were options for sloop or ketch rigs, centre or aft cockpits, fin or twin keels. The Westerly Berwick is the twin keeled, aft cockpit, sloop rigged member of the family.

They were in production from 1973 to 1980, a total of 309 having been built.
