Broker's Comments

A very reasonably priced Centaur, with almost two and a half thousand Centaurs built you can imagine that they come in all degrees of condition. As you can see from the photos, the headlining in the forepeak needs replacing but the headline news is the engine a sparkling replacement Volvo Penta three-cylinder fresh water cooled diesel with only 24 hours on the clock. Her hull was fully epoxied 1995 and she is stored ashore every winter. She has twin quarter-berths and an ‘L’-shaped settee around a long saloon table that drops down to form a double berth. She retains all the intrinsic virtues of the type, of course: spacious with versatile accommodation and solid construction.
