Broker's Comments

This Colvic Atlanta 32, offered for Sale by Boatshed Port Solent, has a really useful combination of qualities - a good enough and tough enough heavy-displacement sailing boat for passage making, yet relatively shallow draught and the ability to take the ground on her triple keels. Add in a deep safe cockpit and roomy wheelhouse, protected from the weather, and you have a genuinely go-almost-anywhere boat. The ketch rig gives plenty of flexibility in a blow. This particular Colvic Atlanta 32 has been to Majorca and sailed home via the French Canals. 42 hp of Mercedes diesel is also fairly effective, of course, in a 32 foot yacht!

Having photographed this yacht I can begin to understand why most of them are still sailing – strong looking, sturdy, and built like the proverbial brick outhouse, she inspires a fair amount of confidence. Such a strongly built seaboat ain’t going to win the Round the Island, but her triple keels and shoal draft mean you can dry out - “take the ground” - the modern brochures would say, so she can venture where the fin-keelers daren’t even think about.

Her navigation kit may need a little upgrading, but its all there, Radar, Autohelm. Trailing log and echo sounder, so you don’t have to do that straight away. She has shore power and a wind generator, so battery life is not an issue, she will happily live on a swinging mooring and generate her own power. What we have here is a sturdy, roomy motor-sailor with a decent engine and plenty of scope for comfortable living. Come and have a look!
