Broker's Comments

At 28 feet, the Colvic Watson is the epitomey of what a motor sailer should be. In no particular order, she is easy to handle, stable, roomy, sure-footed, and a very capable sea boat. This example is in fantastic condition and is well found.
This model certainly derserves its popularity and an early viewing of this one is recomended. See "more photos" to view 38 internal and external photos of this vessel. Photographs, analysis and comments by Mike de Graaf of Boatshed Wales.
