Hello everybody, my father has recently purchased a Wauquiez Centurion 32 by Holman & Pye.
I'm deperately looking for some original plans (of course a copy of the  original plans would do) to make as a present for him.
Tried to make an enquiry to LLoyd's historic register but unfortunately had no positive feedback.
Also sent an enquiry directly to Wauquiez yard but had no reply.
The sailplan you show on this site would be perfect.
Anybody can suggest where i can get these plans on paper so that i can enclose them in a frame to show on the house wall?
Please help me!!!!! :) ;D

You might have luck writing to David Merlot (merlotdavid@wanadoo.fr), he co-created the chantier and has been working with it since 65. He could definitely give advice and has access to all sorts of documents, plans, and whatnot for this boat.

Do know that you can order a scan of the cut-away image that was publish in Bateaux magazine's review (see example below) and their hull form plans which are kinda neat (they can send you a photocopy by mail or email, (the email scans are not very high-res)) that you could then enlarge.  http://www.bateauxonline.fr/index.php/essais/btxtous?view=btxtous&energie=1&id=2 .

Another idea, have you considered contacting the architects ? (UK):
Holman & Pye
(00 44) 12 06 38 24

They might be more willing to share this sort of stuff.

Hi Cormorant and thanks a lot for the suggestion.
Will pursue both possibilities and will update you over my results.
Thanks again and have a nice day
