Richard Phillips' Centaurus, a Shaw 24 yawl, hull # 17 in New Orleans, Louisiana (updated October 16, 2012)  

October 16, 2012. Richard Phillips checked in as the new owner of Centaurus and he will be keeping her in New Orleans. He has a major restoration project ahead of him. Here is his email (edited).

I am the new owner of Centaurus and will keep it in New Orleans. I need masts, booms, any technical help with Atomic 2 (Kermark) and other original parts for restoration.    Thank you,

Richard Phillips


February 28, 2008. Previous owner Jerry Lemann checked in with Centaurus, a glass hull yawl with wood deck and house. She suffered a good bit a damage in hurricane Katrina. When Jerry got her she still had her original wood spars. He also reports that when he was young he sailed on Elda II, one of 3 identical Shaw 24s sailing out of New Orleans in the 1960s. We are hopeful that Jerry will send in some pictures and more info about these boats.
