Centaura has a homely, relaxed feel about her. The kind of yacht that you intrinsically feel won't let you down. Her heritage is rather auspicious having initially been commissioned by two English Lords (hence two matching master cabins) and even having been graced with the presence of Jackie Kennedy on a Corsican cruise. She has had her major points adressed in a 2005 refit with new overhead upholstery, Castellano antifouling on the hull, new exhausts, passarelle and many extras. Centaura has been very well maintained mechanically and is ready to go anywhere, reliably within her range.
