Westerly Centaur B - Details

After 5 years this great Centaur is back on the market!!! A full set of new photos will be available soon.

She is one of the best equipped and most improved Westerly Centaurs around. Considerable amounts of time and money have been spent over the years on this yacht improving her and keeping her in top condition.

Amongst the enhancements are the nav station with chart table that slides neatly in and out when required and its fold down seat on the companionway steps. A similar enhancement above the starboard quarter berth provides storage for whichever of the two table tops is not in use. The clever table design allows for a cockpit and cabin table to be in use simultaneously and for either size top to be used in either place.

The list of modifications is seemingly endless and in viewing this boat we were constantly aware that she has been owned by someone really quite ingeneous, and with extraordinarily high standards.

Also included in the upgrades are a wind generator, radar, GPS, in mast reefing.

Great effort was taken when matching materials and fabrics. For example, the entire fore cabin has duplicated wooden sliding door fronted units that exactly match those of the saloon.

She has cruised extensively on the West Coast of Scotland in recent years and has many crossings to northern Europe under her with previous owners.

She would be equally suitable for a family, a couple or a single handed sailor.

Now back on the market due to the purchase of a larger yacht.

A comprehensive set of documents, that include historical records of all owners, original builders papers and certificates, receipts, equipment manuals, etc. will accompany the sale of this fine vessel.
