Broker's Comments

A good condition example of the Westerly Centaur this one has a 4 cylinder fresh water cooled 1500 BMC diesel engine - much better than the old raw water cooled volvo's in many Centaurs of the same age.
The doghouse might not be everyones cup of tea but it does keep the spray off! It can also be very easily removed.
