Broker's Comments

Surely not another Centaur I hear you cry. Its really surprising though as over 2000 of this popular family cruiser were sold over the years.
This particular example is a little bit special as last year it was "Sailing Today's" project boat and as a result had a full Osmosis treatment with Gelshield treatment, Awlgrip paint applied to the topsides a new Hawk Battery monitor and antenna not forgetting the lovely Permateek deck.
She is clean and tidy throughout and very much in sail-away condition at a price that is extremely attractive when you look at the works that have been carried out on her.

If you are interested then drop me a line and I will happily send you PDF's of the magazine articles so that you can see the works that were carried out for yourself.
