Broker's Comments

b]Surely not another Centaur I hear you cry! It's not really surprising though as nearly 2500 of this popular family cruiser were sold over the years.
This particular example is a very early model, though don't let that put you off as she is in excellent original condition
She is clean and tidy throughout and very much in sail-away condition at a price that is extremely attractive when you compare her to much later models that have been severely "got at" over the years..
