This place http://www.portdinorwic.co.uk/ has half a dozen yachts going up for auction. Ebay 28th Feb Among them is this Centaur
she has the right rudder and is the A layout
the keels look okay
it has dead instruments
the roof has been badly relined
the hatches have been off so it is full of water
Roger the UK’s best known Centaur anatomist says this
just looked at those pictures of the blue one posted on YBW.com. Having found the majority of the internal ply structure on mine to be rotten i’d take a screwdriver and knife to check for rot in the half bulkheads and bearers that the internal moulding sits on.
Theres better boats out there that are less aggro.
I sent an enquiry in
got this reply
I enquired and got this email from some-one called Gareth Cleaver at
Hi Dylan – this boat, along with half a dozen others will be put on e-bay on 28th February. We have to conduct an open sale. If you wish to pursue this you are welcome to make a bid for her on ebay.
Thanks for your interest.
the sails will be in bad nick after five years exposed to the weather
I am hoping that something better will turn up
but it would not do any harm to learn a bit more
