The Centurion is a solid-built sloop less than twenty years old, having seen a good amount of sea time during that period operating as a merchantman up and down the Sapphire Coast. She has an open hold below her single deck, and a small forecastle with barely enough room for her standard crew of seven in uncomfortable proximity. The sterncastle has a peaked roof, and houses the modest captain’s cabin and the wardroom.
The wardroom has four fold-down cots for the ship’s officers, a chart table on pulleys which secures against the ceiling, and inventive storage space in the walls and bench seats. Below the wardroom and captain’s cabin are the ship’s stores, large enough to accommodate about two week’s water and food rations and a few spare parts or tools.
Her single mast stands proud and slightly forward, allowing access to the single main hatch. The small foredeck is only large enough for a few men atop bundled sails, and the bowsprit extends a mere six feet from the bow over the shield-bearing soldier figurehead.
