The Pretorien benefits from all the experience gained by the yard in the production of the Centurion series, and 'KESTREL' has all the usual qualities of a Wauquiez yacht: Safety, comfort, performance and good looks. The construction of a Pretorien has been studied very carefully. All of the bulkheads are bonded to the hull and then the deck is bolted and bonded to the hull.

The hull itself has a number of stiffeners glassed in. The ballast is lead and all of the hardware has been carefully selected. The performance of the Pretorien is that of a modern hull shape carefully designed for speed. The lead ballast gives a reduced wetted surface and to the delight of the helmsman makes it a very stiff boat. The aesthetic appearance of the Pretorien is unquestionable. The deck layout is remarkable because the deck is flush, giving wide side decks while the equipment remains well protected in the deep cockpit. 'KESTREL' is a terrific example of the Wauquiez commitment to quality construction.

Condition of bottom and SD very good (last haulout 9/10 - inspection & zincs; previous haulout 4/10 - anti-fouling paint, etc.)
