The Westerly Centaur needs little introduction. These popular small family cruisers were robustly built and have stood the test of time well. They are surprisingly spacious and although designed as coastal cruisers have ventured far and wide, being easy to handle and sea kindly. This good example has been fully refurbished and is presented for sale in really nice condition.
