Wauquiez Centurion 57 nominated….European Yacht of the Year 2015

Launched at Cannes Boat Show is September 2014, Olivier Racoupeau endowed the 17.4 m Centurion 57, which he designed for Wauquiez (France), with superyacht attributes.

Luxury and comfort dominate the interior, hence her nomination in the “Luxury Cruisers” category for European Yacht of the Year 2015.  David Beck from Sundance Marine said Patrick Bloch, Director Sales & Marketing for Wauquiez was “very excited” to receive this nomination, “It recognises the quality and attention Wauquiez have placed on the Centurion 57’s design and build”. 

With a waxed teak, leather, glass and stainless steel give the 9/10-type rigged sloop its own modern character. Its roomy interior is flooded with daylight thanks to its many large deck hatches and two panoramic portholes in the hull. The master cabin boasts a desk, plenty of storage space and its en suite bathroom with shower. With two double aft cabins for guests, each includes independent ensuite bathroom and a separate shower. If desired, a skipper’s cabin can be created.

The helm position in the spacious cockpit offers two wheels (for an unobstructed view when heeling) and convenient consoles (accommodating the displays of the navigation electronics). With the mast measuring 23 m from the spar and the bulb keel is 2.5 m deep. For the rigging and deck hardware, the boatyard has naturally opted for the quality of well known suppliers, and the engine is a D3 diesel from Volvo Penta.
