Centime - 43.4 LOA Shearwater 39
After our 5-year, 19,000 nautical mile odyssey from Maine to the Galapagos, French Polynesia, Hawaii and Alaska, we are putting our beloved Centime up for sale. She is an amazing cruiser for those like us who dream of adventure. We will miss her dearly.
Centime is a true bluewater beauty ready to sail the world. Made in South Africa and custom designed by world-renowned naval architect Dudley Dix, she is highly capable of navigating rigorous weather. Stunningly elegant and artfully crafted, Centime offers traditional lines above the water and a fast modern fin keel and sleek underbody. Her classic design starts with her clipper bow and follows through her graceful sheer, classic tumblehome, horseshoe cockpit and champagne-glass stern. Her cabin is well appointed with Corian countertops, numerous oval bronze ports and a bright interior. Handcrafted features abound, made from Burmese Teak, holly, birds-eye maple and mahogany.
Fully outfitted for safety, ease of handling and extended passage-making she offers a robust stability curve and can be easily managed from the cockpit. Maintained to exceptionally high standards and outfitted for world cruising she possesses a reliable Volvo engine, large water and fuel tanks, solar panels, wind generator, a high-capacity watermaker, autopilot, self-steering wind vane, AIS, SSB, satellite phone and has been recently refitted with over $70,000 of equipment and upgrades.
Shearwaters have won the Cruising World's Design Awards and Annapolis Boat Show's "Best Traditional Voyagers" and "Best Cruising Boats." Once you sail Centime you will understand why the former editor of Cruising World chose her sistership, Ithaka, as her own private yacht.
"After seven grueling months of boat shopping, when we stepped aboard this vessel, we had the good sense to buy her on the spot." Benadette Bernon, on s/v Ithaka, Centime's sister ship.
