More about the Yacht
With the Centurion 48S, the naval architect Ed Dubois has designed a superb racer cruiser to seduce lovers of authentic high performance and comfortable yachts.
The key features are impressive speed under any wind angle, stability of direction, precision steering with total and permanent control in a functional steering area where most maneuvers can be controlled at a flick of the finger, perfect seaworthiness under any weather, exceptional stiffness, low pitching, and overall comfort below deck (three double cabins, each with private bathroom; light and airy saloon).
Moreover, the Centurion 48S is built on the basis of the most innovative technology in series produced boats (vacuum formed Airex sandwich and structural integration of all major components). She combines an outstanding quality of construction with uncompromising selection of the best equipment.

BATTLE OF THE SAINTES
The Battle of the Saintes (known to the French as the Bataille de la Dominique), or Battle of Dominica was an important naval battle that took place over 4 days, 9 April 1782 – 12 April 1782, during the American War of Independence, and was a victory of a British fleet under Admiral Sir George Rodney over a French fleet under the Comte de Grasse forcing the French and Spanish to abandon a planned invasion of Jamaica. The battle is named after the Saintes (or Saints), a group of islands between Guadeloupe and Dominica in the West Indies. The French fleet defeated here by the Royal Navy was the same French fleet that had blockaded the British Army during the Siege of Yorktown. The French suffered heavy casualties and many were taken prisoner including the Comte de Grasse. Four French ships of the line were captured (including the flagship) as well as one destroyed. Rodney was credited with pioneering the tactic of “breaking the line” in the battle, though this is disputed.
