Broker's Comments

This Colvic offers great crew comfort features having a centre cockpit, Aft Cabin Ketch with its own basin and toilet, She is presented in excellent condition with the addition of a bow thruster and newly epoxied hull wirth a 5 year guarantee and much more living space in a full-bodied hull. She is well-behaved, safe, stable and drama-free. Her high ballast ratio and conservative sail plan make her stiff enough to keep full sail hoisted until nearly the top end of a Force 5. With the sails balanced she’s light and very positive on the steering.

This vessel has been completed to a highly professional standard from a set of substantial mouldings assembled and supplied by Colvic in 1986. For example the panelling has been matched to the grain of the wood

This boat was only launched in 1993 and has been improved upon and fastidiously maintained by the current owners. She was completely stripped and epoxied below the waterline in 2016. A Vetus bow thruster was added in 2013. She is fully equipped with the latest Tack Tick instrumentation and ready to go
