I currently have a westerly centaur which some of you think is worthless. However yes it is Not the most speedy sailboat in this size it is one of the safest and easiest for a newbie to handle and learn the ropes on. It is a very forgiving boat for the novice in my mind. I when first getting had never previously owned a sailboat. We have had it now for some 5 years and the biggest knock I have with it is that I have to trailer it which entails an hour to rig every time plus another to take down for transport.

If I were to start again in the same field of experience the only thing I might do different is to check it out more thoroughly so as I know more of what needs major attentions as far as repairs. I got stung with having to redo the complete stern tube/prop shaft assy. My advise is know what the needs are and go for it as anything any where comparable to this will cost you 60,000 plus canadian. You can do a lot of refurbishing for that difference and get it like you stated your way. Happy sailing. And oh yeah that is the name on my boat Dilli-Gaf

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Values are what they are.
I bought a traller and in Ontario Canada, hauled it to Baltimore MD. where a 1971 Centaur was loaded and hauled back to British Columbia Canada.
Every thing was stipped to bare fiber glass inside and out. Engine (26 HP Volvo MD 3002) was removed and rebuilt by Volvo. All new interior, windows, portlights, rigging, Etc. the list is so extensice that only your emagination can think of it. Total rebuild of components was $45,000 Cdn. after the hull was in my yard. The Sea Gamin is NOT for sale.

She is now as new (2009)

It was cheaper than anything I found, When you are looking for a vessel, someones emotional value is worthless, buy the hull you want and invest in the rebuild.

Just make sure the hull you buy is the one you want.
