Broker's Comments

The Centaur is one of the most popular British yachts and the ketch rigged Westerly is a rare breed and this is your chance to own one. This particular boat is very well cared for by the present owner and has had over £3,000 spent on her over the past three years. She has sailed to the Scilly Isles, West Country, and France. The owner has sailed her single handed on several occasions and she is perfect for lone sailing. She is now antifouled and ready for her new owners to take her on an adventure. There is no excuses not to view this boat, hurry up and get out on the water!

This Westerly Centaur Ketch has been personally photographed and viewed by Andrea Drew of Boatshed Poole. Click here for contact details.
