Classic Colvic Watson

Classic Colvic Watson

New Arrival
£19,995 VAT paid

Built: 1983
Currently lying: River Exe, UK - United Kingdom

This listing contains some provisional information: details may change

We have sold several Colvic 28s and also a 35 all of which have the enviable style characteristics of a traditional yacht and really good sea-keeping capabilities.
Skara Brae has a traditional type of coach-roof (wind-screen leaning forward) and a restored interior, with much good old fashioned solid teak.

This is a romantic vessel which exudes historical style, with a 35hp Thornycroft engine providing ample power and reliability.

Our view is that with a reasonably recent sail wardrobe, there is only the rig and deck gear needing attention, to make this a reliable and comfortable yacht at an affordable asking price

Asking price - £19,995 - reasonable offers will be considered

Skara Brea is a new addition much more information still to come including extended brokers notes and specification.
