Hi,

I have come across the three port holes mod before on other models, mostly on the 31 footers (Renown, Berwick, Longbow) This is the first Centaur I have seen with this mod. Most people put in the extra port hole that can open which allows air to circulate around the main cabin. I looked at the mod for my Pentland but there isn't enough room in the coach roof to put one in because of the aft cabin and the main cabin being small on this model.

I very much doubt that your cabin is 2 foot longer as all Centaurs were made to the same spec room wise, just different layouts, unless someone has moved the bulkhead which I would doubt as this would compromise the hull stiffness etc.

So, same size I would say with the porthole mod.

Regards

Steve

Nice looking boat. And you must have got very muddy boots taking that photo!

Ah - that's not the one that was for sale in Bangor, is it? I nearly went to see her as it's not to far away.

Ha youve got one of mine. :D I only have a single port (serving the heads). It would seem that if the first owner was buying to order then one two or more could be specified. I am sure that Trafalgar yachts personnel could confirm this theory.
