Broker's Comments

Provisional details awaiting approval
Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Westerly Centaur. The Westerly Centaur remains to this day one of the most popular bilge keel yachts and finds favour with those looking for their first 'big' sailing boat or ‘old timers’ alike. Over 2,500 were built from 1969 to 1984 and they are renowned for being strongly built, with excellent headroom and accommodation for their size and sail well. This Centaur features the B layout with the galley forward on the starboard side. The topsides look good and overall she is well presented with recent new heads and other updates.
Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
