No pressure. Yes! I am handing over the entire boat and yes you will be making destination decisions. You don't need to go anywhere. The boats yours to run about  in the immediate san juan Islands. If it sounds more appealing to have a captain on board we can arrange that to and will quote case by case based on itinerary. The boat will run $220 per day plus $150 covid/cleaning fee. Unfortunately we must wash all bedding, & sterilize entire vessel from party to party regardless of what's used.  This is an old classic that today garners much respect. More so than it did the day it was born. A 1970 Westerly Centaur. One of if not the first 26' production type sailboat that a 6' tall person could stand up in. It still is one of just a few with that amenity today. It was innovative for it's time.  Designing interior compartments with fiberglass and including them in the original lay up creating structural strength . This had never been done before. The boat has twin cast Iron keels. It can be set on a beach ,stranded @low tide and Is designed to enjoy this.  It's built with this in mind. Westerly s goal was to end up with a pocket size coastal cruiser that offered similar amenities to boats substantially larger. Yet be affordable.  Recently the Centaur was the most sought after used sailboat in Europe across all searches. Built in the UK. Over 2600 boats were built with three floorplan options   This Westerly  includes a new main sail, 140  furling genoa. Asymmetrical spinnaker and pole, VhF radio, garmin gps echo50, simrad tp 100 auto pilot, class B AIS transmitter, LED running lights, 2000 watt honda generator, alcohol stove on board with portable propane stove, small galley, smaller head, v berth for 2 and two rear quarter berths. Life preservers, 4 stroke Yamaha 9.9hp. 200'line anchor 20' chain w danforth. The boat can sleep six but it's too small for even 5 people to move around on efficiently. Two or three person's is perfect.  Also included is a six foot achilles inflatable tender with oars. Camping equipment, tent, air mattress, basic utensils, pots, and pans. This type of sailing is a  hands on opportunity to grasp all that's involved. Possibilities are endless. Consider this glamorous camping..  or an affordable place to stay on any protected shoreline. As another leasing option I will deliver the boat to your location, use it for additional sleeping space or a detached bedroom. $220 night plus drop off and pick up  to be quoted. Coin operated showers  are found on  orcas, Friday harbor and Lopez. Laundry facilities are also nearby located on all three islands The boat has no shower. In addition to what's listed above it carries 75 gallons of fresh water, basic sink w/, foot  pump, led running lights, 12 volt system on board and we supply a 2000 watt EU Honda generator  Also included is Cooler with 12 volt cooling system . This a clean 1970s 26' sailboat.  We are flexible .please message us with any questions you may have.

Additional Terms & Information

We are offering the Westerly to anyone looking to book for a minimum of 5 days and 4 nights.  This is mainly due to the time it takes cleaning vessel from party to party. We are forced to charge an additional $150 fee to offset the fact that all bedding and the entire boat be sanitized prior to transferring to a new guest.  This causes in some cases 48 hours to pass before we can rebook .  The boat shall be ready @ noon  day of agreed  departure and can be returned as late as 10 p.m. on agreed return date.   We will communicate directly with party on location prior to departure.         Your reservation/booking with us is not based on person's traveling or staying on boat.
