Broker's Comments

Colvic Watson's have, quite rightly, a great reputation as seaworthy, safe and practical motor sailors. They have a very keen following amongst the ‘knowledgeable yachtie’ who desires such a vessel. All were built to very high scantlings by a builder who until recently built commercial craft and lifeboats. No corners are cut in their basic lay-up, but interiors, often home completed, do vary. This example appears to have been fitted out professionally by a shipwright. She is clean and tidy and well equipped,with three cabin, light and airy accommodation. Her owner has looked after her and regularly run and maintained her motor, but sadly has not had much use out of her in the last twelve months. She may need a hose down, but apart from that we reckon she is ready to sail.
