The heir of a long lineage of state-of-the-art cruiser-racers, the Centurion 40S2 has maintained all of his predecessors? intrinsic qualities : a slender hull, a thoroughbred silhouette, sleek lines, a low, discreet roof, the cockpit and the deck dedicated both to manoeuvres and to relaxation, the quality of the rigging and the fittings, the nobility of the interiors where waxed teak prevails... The Centurion 40S.2 is a great Wauquiez !
