Broker's Comments

With over 2500 Centaurs built, to call this model popular is an understatement! This example is definatly one of the more presentable. The first noticeable aspect of this vessel, is how clean & dry she feels. Her new unpholstery is very pleasing to the eye & her wood work is fresh & varnished.The wiring has also been recently re-newed, which is another advantage with this boat.
