Broker's Comments

OPEN TO OFFERS - The Westerly Centaur is surely one of the most successful boats ever built, and this one, built in 1979 is a credit to the owners.
She has been used and enjoyed by the current owners for the last 5 years.
A rare specification is the Wheel helm. The engine and engine bay are a credit. I am sure anyone looking for a Westerly Centaur, will not be disappointed.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
