|Meltemi, a Wauquiez Centurion 40s, is now listed for sale exclusively with the team at YOTI and is ready for inspection.
Wauquiez are often referred to as the French version of Swan yachts and the 40s is one of their more popular designs. The boat is a brilliant mixture of quality, comfort and speed. Meltemi has two large cabins, a beautifully finished main cabin and a generous toilet/shower room. She is easy to handle with just two crew but a large open cockpit aids those wanting to push her when racing with more.
