Broker's Comments

Provisional details awaiting approval
Boatshed Torquay are delighted to offer for sale this 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.
If you would like any further information or if you would like to organise a viewing then please contact me.
