The Westerly Centaur has stood the test of time so well. These tough little boats are still going strong and continue to offer so much for so little. This excellent example has been beautifully refurbished and comes complete with a new Beta diesel, so she's rearing to go. There are plenty on the market , but excellent examples like this are hard to find.
