Broker's Comments

The ubiquitous Westerly Centaur. Most successful family cruising yacht of all time. Suitable for ditch crawling or trans Atlantic (!?). As reliable as a Volvo. One of the last to be built, and an A model at that! So why so cheap, especially since a good survey less than four years ago valued her at £15k? Well, times change, owners circumstances change, and unfortunately, a seemingly sound epoxy coating has failed in places. “So what” you may well ask, “no boat has sunk because of the dreaded ‘O’ word” and I’m inclined to agree. Re-coat if you must, or simply re-antifoul and go. The choice, and a real bargain, could be yours!
