The Centaur is one of the most popular British yachts ever, about 2,500 having been built from 1969 to 1984. Centaurs are strongly built, offer excellent headroom and accommodation for their size, and sail well. 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. As with all other Westerly Marine yachts the Centaur was massively built. This was partly a result of previous building experience within the company and also a reflection of the state of GRP technology at that time. All Centaurs were built to Lloyds specifications which meant that the building processes were rigorously monitored and all materials had to be approved by Lloyds in order that a certificate could be issued. Although long out of production they still represent excellent value for money, and offer a very tough, seaworthy and spacious (for 26 ft) yacht at low cost. This Example benefits from significant investment including a new engine in 2008, Copper Coated in 2018 and a 2014 Survey where all items raised are reported to have been replaced or made good.
