Broker's Comments

The Westerly Chieftain is the aft-cabined version of the Westerly Centaur. The Chieftain has a seperate aft cabin with two single berths. The saloon area feels just the same size as the Centaur, but lacks the two quarter berths. The Chieftain also has wheel steering, this allowed the room taken up by the tiller to be used for the aft cabin.
This boat is in commission but has had little use over the last year. It is realistically priced to sell and represent good value.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Westerly Chieftain has been personally photographed and viewed by Steve Booth of Boatshed Essex. Click here for contact details.
