Broker's Comments

The Westerly Centaur needs no introduction from me. Westerly Yacht's most successful production boat and the yacht that transformed family cruising in the 1970's. Medium to heavy displacement means safe and predictable handling, making her suitable for cross channel and offshore work. She has roomy accomodation for her length and is easily handled by a crew of one or two. She handles force six with ease yet can still take you to the top of drying creeks and harbours with her three foot draft. And, for a bilge keeler, she really does sail. A great family all rounder benefitting from a two year old motor, tidy and average condition for her age.
