Ralf, due to the age of either of these boats, the condition of a particlular example will probably be the deciding factor. Both are bilge keel
yachts which will be useful for taking the gound in Brittany. If you still need the mast
lowering facility then you will have to devise a frame because the mast
on a Centaur is starting to get a bit big for lifting up an down.
The Centaur is probably the better known with 3000 built and considerd a safe yacht. One called "pipe Dream" did the Azores
and back single
handed two years ago.
