Here is a list of all the boats Westerly built. This should help you identify it.

Westerly Classes - Westerly-Wiki

As a new owner I would certainly suggest you should join the Westerly Owners Association forum, you do not have to be a member of the association. Full membership is only £15.00 and has many benefits including discounted insurance with additional free extras. The discount is usually more than the membership fee, so that means membership is technically free.

Well, if it's a Centaur with a fin keel then it's a Pembroke.

Well done on your purchase. That means you've bought a faster version of an extremely popular boat, but in some parts of the country it will be worth less than a Centaur as it can't be kept on a cheap drying, swinging mooring.

As a fellow Westerly owner I can recommend joining the Westerly Owners Association. Lots of hints, tips, help, info and camaraderie.

And when you join the WOA you get a free copy of "The Westerly Story" usually selling at over £12 which gives details of every design that Westerly ever built.

In answer to one of your questions, Westerly never built boats for any other company, they commissioned designers to design boats which they then built.

At the time of Centaurs there were also Westerly Tigers I seem to call - how long is the vessel? I guess in old money around 25 to 26foot ?

Maybe, can you find how much it sold for?
Quick look on Google and Ebay results in a 'no'. I think it's too long ago.

I was really just trying to not disillusion the OP if they paid more for the boat!

And lots of work may have been done on it to improve its value since 2019. But realistically, how much was a Pembroke worth in 2019 with no engine, headlining removed, DIY repair to hull, etc?
