We present the orbital and physical parameters of the detached eclipsing binary V1200 Centauri (ASAS J135218-3837.3) from the analysis of spectroscopic observations and light curves from the All-Sky Automated Survey (ASAS) and SuperWASP (Wide Angle Search for Planets) data base. The radial velocities were computed from the high-resolution spectra obtained with the OUC (Observatorio Universidad Católica) 50-cm telescope and PUCHEROS (Pontificia Universidad Católica High Echelle Resolution Optical Spectrograph) spectrograph and with 1.2-m Euler telescope and CORALIE spectrograph using the cross-correlation technique TODCOR. We found that the absolute parameters of the system are M1 = 1.394 ± 0.030 M&sun;, M2 = 0.866 ± 0.015 M&sun;, R1 = 1.39 ± 0.15 R&sun;, R2 = 1.10 ± 0.25 R&sun;. We investigated the evolutionary status and kinematics of the binary and our results indicate that V1200 Centauri is likely a member of the Hyades moving group, but the largely inflated secondary’s radius may suggest that the system may be even younger, around 30 Myr. We also found that the eclipsing pair is orbited by another, stellar-mass object on a 351-d orbit, which is unusually short for hierarchical triples. This makes V1200 Cen a potentially interesting target for testing the formation models of multiple stars.
