Very nice, well maintained Wauquiez Centurion 40S offered by her second owner who put in at least as much love into her as the first owner did. She is well taken care of from the very first day she came from the shipyard till today by her current owner.
The Wauquiez Centurion 40S does not need any introduction for the seasoned sailors. These ships are known for their high build quality and excellent sail performance. And for those who don't know, just have a look at her. Moored in the marina you'll see that this is a very nice boat even when laying still. Her sleek lines, large cockpit and smart deck layout are all well thought out and makes sailing with this ship as easy as it could be. Once settled in on board, you will notice that she is very comfortable as well. That same spacious cockpit for example, provides plenty of room to relax for you and your family at anchor or in te marina. You really notice that the shipyard put their years of experience into her and the result is very, very nice. Fast, comfortable and nice to look at, what could you want more out of a sailing boat.
Inside this Wauquiez you get the same feeling that an experienced shipyard has been working on this.. The interior is well finished and the layout is thoughtful. This Centurion 40 is the two cabin version. That means, obviously two large cabins; one in the forward section of the ship and one in the aft. But this also means you will get the extra-large wet cell with nice separate shower and the very large cockpit locker. Perfect for a couple heading out for a long sailing trip with even room to spare for guest along the way. The saloon has two comfortable settees and there is a large table in the middle which can be set with the present Wauquiez designed tableware. When you go to dinner, why not in style, right? Of course there is a large navstation and useful galley as well. And all the electronic navigation gadget like double chartplotters, radar, AIS, etc. But if you look past all that, what is left is a perfectly balanced sailboat. Not only sailperformancewise but also to look at and to live with. All in all, Wauquiez did a very nice job on the Centurion 40S and this one in particular had a first and second (=current) owner who apricates that and the love put into her just shines through.
All in all, looking for a proven solid, fast and all-round very nice sailing boat in the 40-feet range? This one should definitely be on your list. So don't hesitate to contact us for an appointment to visit this Wauquiez Centurion 40S
