The Westerly Centaur is a well established, safe, family sailing cruiser. This particular example has the popular 'B' Layout and has been modified to include wheel steering. The boat is presented in excellent original order and has been regularly wintered ashore in her present ownership of thirty five years. In May 2018 a new Selden Furlex 50s headsail furling system and new standing rigging were fitted, together with other improvements costing in excess of £2000.
