Broker's Comments

Two engines AND two masts AND two lots of heads – that must be a good thing!

She has come back on to the market recently after undergoing full osmosis treatment, she has been drying out for nearly a year and is now raring to go!

A true Blue Water yacht, this roomy and well built ketch has been conscientiously maintained by her professionally qualified owner. The Colvic Victor has a reputation as a safe and dependable sailor, and what I have seen of this yacht leads me to believe that she delivers on all the criteria for this claim. The cockpit is deep and safe, her rig looks strong and seamanlike, and her sheer presence exudes reliability. Down below the saloon is light and airy but the cabins feel snug and secure. The woodwork is well finished and I lost count of the number of lockers, cupboards and storage spaces. I didn’t have the courage to descend the ladder that leads down into the cavernous lazarette – I have a wife and children you know, and they are expecting me home for supper. Ring me on 07885 521960 and we can set up a vieiwng, or email
