Broker's Comments

This has to be one of the best equipped and up to date Westerly Centaur's on the market today!! She has been set up for short handed sailing with a vengance! There is not much you could improve on this boat to make her any more user friendly, she is a real credit to her owner. She's had the annual polish up and the deck has been freshly painted ( not photographed yet!). She is all painted and polished up ready to go imediatley, definatley worth a look soon!!. An excellent stable family boat quite literally ready to go. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
