Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. This tidy Colvic is an ideal family cruising river boat, which is also comfortable on tidal water. With 3 double berths, shower, cooker and fridge she has plenty of accommodation, she also has a good level of navigation and safety equipment. The current owner has recently overhauled the engines and both have been recently serviced, prenting her in excellent mechanical order.
