Broker's Comments

A very good example of this popular yacht, she has the "B" Layout and comes with a good inventory.
Much of her equipment itemised in the sections above is quite recent including new upholstery in 2005.
The Centaurs are well know for thier good accommodation and headroom, they make a great family cruiser with good safe handling charateristics.
These boat details are subject to contract.
