Broker's Comments

The one thing about the Centaur is that it just refuses to curl up and die. This one is now a grand old lady of 42 and yet she has obviously got a lot of life left in her laminate yet.
I started sailing on Centaurs nearly 40 years ago and they still hold for me as they do for so many people a certain charm.
They are safe, solid and very roomy for their years.
You could still do a lot worse than a Centaur as a first yacht or even for just safe, secure creek hopping.
