The Mac 27 is a good solid boat as many have said, they do sail well with a good wind, light winds they are pretty dam slow. The 28 has the same keel profile as the 26, so not sure if it would suffer from the same sailing sideways problems as it has.

I agree re. the Centaur, a much maligned boat which actually sails well in the right hands; one reason it gained a rep' as a non-performer was simply that a lot of novices bought them; in fact a lot of all types of sailors bought them.
As Tranona has pointed out before, there are also a lot of them, so shopping around for a good one becomes more likely to get results...

And with the Centaur you have an active association that do a great job of keeping the Westerly Marque alive which helps preserve your investment....

From my experience - I learned to sail in a bilge keel Sabre on the East Coast when they were new (dates me! - I was only a youngish) it performs very well for its type - definitely better than the previous generation of twin keel but probably not as good as the later ones such as the Sadler, David Thomas and David Feltham designs.
