Re: Beneteau First 40 compared to Wauquiez Centurion 40s

Hi Marylin,
We have a 40S 2006 with Volvo three blade folding prop. Works very good!. make sure its the correct direction (The Volvo is left turn, the Yanmar i don't know).
In addition to the Story: the Centurion 40S is built heavier than the the first brochure. Our 40s is over 9 tons of weight with teak decks, shallow keel and electric winches. Despite the extra weight, she is fast, especially downwind. In the beat we suffer the shallow keel...

Regards
Gert Jan
