Konsort Duo

Introduction

The design evolved as a result of an enormous market-research excersise by Westerlys who contacted all the Centaur owners plus others asking them what they would like to see in a motor sailer. It was pricipally designed to accomodate and be handled by just two people with occasional berths for visiting friends.

For its size it has enormous capacities for fuel and water and over the 3 years of manufacture sold over a hundred boats.

Fitting Davits

Special brackets can be made up to position the dinghy aft of the rudder. There is sufficient space between dinghy and yacht to still use the boarding ladder.
