26 ft Westerly Centaur sailboat - $6500 Indian Harbour Beach, Fl)

1972 Westerly Centaur 26 ft. sailboat, these boats were built in England and made for the North Sea, very stout blue water boats. These boats only draws 3 ft. and have twin keels on each side, pretty unique, the tides can drop out 17 ft in England and this allows the boat to rest on the bottom evenly, allowing the owner to survey the bottom or do a bottom job.

The boat is powered by 9.9 tohatsu 4 stroke, that runs great and is good on fuel. The bottom was completely redone in 2016, I grinded off all the blisters and rebuilt up the bottom with epoxy, put on multiple barrier coats of interlux 2000, and anti foulant bottom paint, petit. All the thru hulls and seacocks were replaced and new hoses and clamps were installed. The rigging was also redone by Grant's marine and new Wichard chain plates were installed. The mast was completely rewired. A conduit was pop riveted to the interior of the mast and all new led lights,anchor and steaming lights were installed along with new wind vane and vhf antennae.

The boat has a new Jabsco head and a brand new full batten main, from Mac at south sails. The lifelines are also brand new.

All in all its a cool little boat that has basically been redone and sails nicely, I have had many magical trips down south with her and it also has over 6' standing head room.

The boat could stay in its current slip for the monthly rental fee.
