Broker's Comments

Colvic has always enjoyed a reputation for making solid, workman like, no-nonsense boats. The Watson 23 is no exception.

The long keel design and the added bilge plates allow excellent stability either under power or sail and she is spacious enough to be a comfortable weekender.

This Colvic Watson 23 has been recently antifouled and fitted with new anodes. A new automatic bilge pump was fitted in 2009, new cockpit cover in 2010 and a complete refurbishment of the front cabin including new cushions in 2010.

She is back in the water ready for the season.
