We are looking to upgrade from our current Cessna Skylane (with SMA
diesel engine) and one of the candidates is the turbine Cessna
Centurion 210 from Silver Eagle. Recently I got an offer to buy a
share. It is a 2003 conversion on a 1981 Centurion. Total time
around 3400 hours, time since conversion 1080 hours (TBO 3500). The
asking price of the 50% is $370K (what makes the total price for
this plane $740K). Maintenance since conversion has been excellent.
What is your opinion on the Silver Eagle Centurion? Does anyone have
experience with the plane? What should I check before making a
decision? And what about the price of $740K?
Any input is much appreciated.

A 2001 Piper Meridian will sell for about the same $740k and is a lot more airplane.

It seems like a lot of money of money for an aircraft in this economy, even a turbine one.
