A gorgeous Wauquiez Centurion 45S from the designers Berret / Racoupeau and built in France north of Lille, near the border of Belgium. The Wauquiez range are one of France’s finest, with the quality of finish and standard of build certainly comparable to several of the top Scandinavian marques.

Being designed by Jean Berret, it was no surprise that she sailed like a dream too, hitting over 8 knots with ease in very little wind – there are just some occasions when a Marine Surveyor does get a little jealous of the clients!

There was very little wrong with this particular craft, always a pleasure for a Marine Surveyor as well as the buyer, vendor and broker! The survey report is short, and all parties are happy, the sale goes ahead smoothly!
