This Ed Dubois designed cruiser racer is a boat designed for performance cruisers, her deep draft fin keel and ample sail plan will give great windward performance, even in the lighter airs. Now in her second ownership and still showing low engine hours this is clearly a boat that has been only privately cruised and lightly used. She is equipped with all manner of cruising and sailing amenities including a generator, water maker, life raft, a full range of sails, twin spinnaker poles, good electronics and the list goes on. Due to time restraints that the owner now has, she is attractively priced her for a timely sale. We therefore highly encourage you to view what we believe to be the best value for a cruise equipped Centurion 45 on the market today.

(2 Cabin / 1 Head)
Starting most forward is the sail storage locker in the bow. This can be accessed from the forward cabin by way a bulkhead doorway or from above through a very large deck hatch. Next aft is the master cabin featuring a double Pullman berth to starboard with a full height hanging locker forward of the berth, to port are cupboards and plenty of storage as well as plenty of standing and changing area, providing a good feeling of space befitting of a good sized master cabin.

Moving aft and into the main salon we find the forward facing navigation station with separate navigator's seat forward and to port. The spacious linear galley is next aft and to port with fridge forward, stove centrally and the twin stainless steel sinks aft. Outboard of the galley surfaces are plenty of eye level cupboards, surface levels cubbies and a cupboard and some drawers below the surfaces. Opposite the galley and to starboard is the C shaped dining area with a beautiful fixed teak dining table with drinks locker below as well as comfortable seating for 4-6 people. Outboard and above the settee are book shelves centrally and cupboards either side providing ample storage as well as more storage space behind the settee backs.

Aft in the main salon and to port of the companionway is the aft cabin doorway, to starboard of the companionway is a full height hanging closet, ideal for use as a wet locker. The port aft guest cabin features a double berth, plenty of standing and changing room forward and cupboard and draw storage outboard and to port. Inboard and to starboard in this cabin is the entrance to the spacious head unit which has the toilet most forward and outboard, followed by the hand basin aft and the showering area central.

He whole of the interior is beautifully fashioned in handpicked solid teak and laminates and is clearly built to a particularly high level of quality, reinforcing these boat's common accolade of being known as the "Swans of France".
