Broker's Comments

There were 2444 of these made, so I expect you’ll all be fairly familiar with the breed! The single most successful yacht Westerly ever made!

This one has the “B” layout, with the galley on the starboard side and 5 berths. The upholstery is in excellent condition, and down below she looks bright and fresh.

In fairness, her standing rigging probably needs doing and her sails are a little tired, but she benefits from a decent spray hood and dodgers, and her blue hull is very smart.

Oh- by the way, her headlinings have all been replaced so she doesn’t suffer from “Westerly droop!” Check out the photos, very smart indeed.

Well, you all know the Centaur; some are better than others, and this is a nice one; so give me a ring on 07885 521960 or email to and we’ll get along and see her. She is ashore and ready to view.
