Broker's Comments

The Westerly Centaur is the most popular production yacht ever build and with good reason.
Lots of accommodation and very strongly built coupled with with reasonable performance and a sea-kindly nature. This yacht has an amazing amount of equipment included, the sails are like new, modern electronics and good original gelcoat.
Could do with a good clean on deck but otherwise ready to go.
This great bilge keeler is located in south Suffolk and is ashore for your viewing.

This Westerly Centaur has been personally photographed and viewed by Mark Barton of Boatshed Suffolk. Click here for contact details.
