1974 28' Westerly Centaur Ketch Sailboat 

This big sailboat has a ton of potential, but does need some TLC.

There is a 27hp WM Sea Panther Diesel Motor 

The motor is in working condition, but it does need a starter solenoid.

There is a main sail, ketch sail, jib and matching canvas covers.

There are a few soft spots on the deck, otherwise a solid boat.

The boat features a cockpit that is wheel steered. 

The rigging is tired, but is there and does featured 2 winches.

There is a swim ladder on the rear of the boat.

The inside of the boat shows its age but still has potential.

There is a forward VBirth, private head, dual aft cabins, seating and kitchenette. 

Overall this boat needs some attention, but is a large ketch style sailboat with a lot of the pieces in place.

The boat will come with a NC title and bill of sale.

Please view all photos and ask any questions you may have.

Thank you for looking at the listing.
