"Centime" Is a self contained sailing cruiser ideal for spending quality time exploring the Lakes and coastal waters.
Centime was up graded and transported to Loch Sport Marina, Gippsland lakes in 2009.
The upgrades were focused on "staying out there longer". Already a fast comfortable craft to sail and relax on the Noelex 30' Centime has the capacity to accommodate cruising extras enable a family of 4-5 to enjoy the lakes for a week or so before returning for supplies.
All control lines lead behind the spray dodger and through rope jammers while the auto-pilot assists and allows easy single and short handed operation.
The upgrade features are as follows:
One extra stainless steel water 120 lt tank complimenting the original stainless tank, water saving hot water primeing system, LPG/240v stainless steel storage hot water service, gas detection system, gas compliant, pressure pump for hot and cold water, shower in enclosed head cubical with solar fan vent, Porta Potti toilet with extra canister, 3 flouro's and Led lights through out, flat screen TV/DVD player suspended on starboard side, circulating fans, 4 burner gas stove & grill, over head storage and shelving furniture in port aft berth with access hatch at rear panel, 280 Watts solar panels, PL20 solar controller, wind generator, 4 new - 12v 120 ah AGM solar batteries (recently replaced) & one sealed cranking battery, 2 - 240V battery chargers, 240V shore power inlet,
To minimise sails and improve handling we had a heavier cruising genoa made that could be used furled in strong winds, a fully battened main sail and a pair of self tailing two speed winches. The mast is equipped with masthead 360 degree TV antenna, fly spreaders and mast head spinnaker halliard.
The dagger board is raised and lowered electro-hydraulically via a stainless steel cylinder with push buttons both inside and out with a remote pendant.
The boat and motor is serviced by Webster Marine Paynesville and Gippsland Ports.
Feb 2021 Centime was hauled out and cleaned, reantifouled, cut & polished and had the prop and saildrive serviced.
Centime doesn't have a road trailer trailer.

Centime has an enormous storage capacity mainly under the starboard cockpit seat and around the back of cockpit. The hot water service is suspended forward of the hatch. The hatch supports the engine control and gas detector panel. The port rear bulkhead has an access door fitted for access to the transome area.
The self tacking jib track has been removed for safety and the fact it's no longer required. 240V, 12v and mains water sockets are mounted in the aft wall of the anchor well.
Water filler on the port side fills both tanks at the same time.
