CENTURION 32 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Centurion. Smaller and different from Pretorien. Same boatyard. Less 'radical'. Good build quality. Good performance. Good safety.

Sort of like an iteration of Contessa 32.

There are 2 outstanding 35 footers that are very capable offshore in my opinion, the Pretorien is one and the other is a Niagara 35..both wonderful boats and both well built with a proven reputation.

thanks B, nice boat. I'm still a little scared of a blue water boat that dosent have a full keel. I keep thinking of bumping into a whale or worse with that little skeg protected rudder and what could happen

The Centurion has been built in a number of different sizes. You can see a full list of Wauquiez builds here:

History | Wauquiez

I think that if you like the Pretorien but are thinking smaller, then perhaps the Gladiateur (33')?

Also, confirmed that the Pretorien is a skeg hung rudder. Looks like this:
