HD 114837 is a suspected binary star[7][3] system in the southern constellation of Centaurus. The brighter star is faintly visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of 4.90.[2] It has a magnitude 10.2 candidate common proper motion companion at an angular separation of 4.2, as of 2014.[3] The distance to this system, based on an annual parallax shift of 55.0143 as seen from Earth's orbit,[1] is 59.3 light years. It is moving closer with a heliocentric radial velocity of −64 km/s,[5] and will approach to within 21.8 ly in around 240,600 years.[11]

The primary component is an F-type main-sequence star with a stellar classification of F6 V Fe-0.4,[4] showing a mild underabundance of iron in its spectrum. It is about 3.4[9] billion years old with 1.14[7] times the mass of the Sun and about 1.3[8] times the Sun's radius. This star is radiating 3.12[2] times the Sun's luminosity from its photosphere at an effective temperature of 6,346 K.[9]
