Broker's Comments

The Colvic Sea Rover 28 is a sturdy cruiser designed to be seaworthy and easy to sail. They have a triple keel underwater profile with a long encapsulated centre keel and then two smaller bilge plates. The will happily dry out on a mud berth and obviously are ideal for east coast and other shallow waterways and inlets - what else would you expect from a boat designed by Maurice Griffiths.
This one is well presented and would need little if any attention – a coat of antifouling perhaps but not much else.
These boat details are subject to contract.
