Broker Remarks

A very well cared for 1977 example of this ever popular, small, family cruiser with 'C' Interior Layout. This Westerly Centaur has one double and two single berths in forecabin, saloon and quarterberth. Yanmar 20hp diesel was installed in 2003 and sprayhood and mainsail cover in 2013.

Sloop rig with furling mainsail and genoa. The sailing performance is helped by carefully designed bilge keels which are handed port and starboard with a two degree toe-in, so that once the boat heels under sail the more vertical leeward keel is developing lift to windward.

Above deck, the Centaur remains popular because her deep cockpit and wide side decks serve to create a sense of safety when aboard. Another reason for the continuing popularity of Centaurs is the fact that they are a stiff, powerful boat. Whether sailing or motoring, the Centaur's handling is always predictable.  Lying ashore at Noss Marina, Dartmouth close to our office. Price reduced to sell.

Owners remarks:
I have sailed many thousands of miles and crossed oceans in my time, and even with such wide experience I have never been disappointed by 'Ladybird' and her good solid performance. Now I intend to buy a canal boat and take it a little easier.

This boat was last surveyed in February 2012 and last antifouled in February 2014.  There have been two previous owners and I have owned the boat for three years.
