Broker's Comments

Colvic boats enjoy a reputation for making solid, dependable, no-nonsense hulls and coachroofs as a basis for fitting out by their owners. Consequently, the style and quality of interior fit-out varies enormously. This is one of the better ones. Her current owner has decided that the time is right to give up sailing, and whoever acquires this fine little ship will benefit from the care that has gone into refining her systems and making the interior into a cosy little home. Inside, there is wood everywhere, with the cabin sole adding particularly to the traditional boat feel. Furling main and foresail make managing the modest sail plan a breeze. Her little ship looks won’t appeal to everyone, but there is a re-assuring business-like air about her that many will find inspiring. Steer by tiller in the cockpit when the sun shines; slip into the snug little wheelhouse when it doesn’t. This is a great little boat for some lucky person.
