She has the “B” layout with 5 berths in 2 cabins including 2 “V” berths in the forepeak. There are 2 quarter berths.
Cabin headlining & upholstery renewed, keel bolts reinforced prior to purchase in April 2015, when surveyor indicated I was "unlikely to find a better Centaur". Since then I have installed a new mainsail, lazy jacks, two new batteries and charger, sound insulation. I am unable to find the time to justify keeping her. Also included Garmin 450 GPS new this year!
