Broker's Comments

This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a beautiful Colvic 28, a must see. She is very sturdy vessel with a deep safe cockpit and good sized guard rails. She has bilge keels and can be used in shallow harbours and would be ideal for family cruising.
This Countess 28 was completed refurbished in 2008 and had a new cooker and loo in 2007. There is also a new battery management system plus a tv and dvd for the children. Certainly a very capable boat with generous accommodation
