Broker's Comments

The Westerly Centaur 26’ is a good family cruiser, ideal for those upgrading from dayboats or dinghies. With over 2500 built they proved very popular and most are still sailing today.

In essence, she is a proper family cruiser, with a fairly comfortable motion at sea, an easily handled but not under-canvassed rig, a good-sized cockpit and plenty of living space with 6ft headroom below and can sleep up to five adults in reasonable comfort.

This example has been well maintained and has had the benefit of being re-engined fairly recently with a more powerful engine.

These boat details are subject to contract.
