Broker's Comments

The Colvic Sailer 29 ft 6" has a reputation as a sturdy spacious family cruiser, with bilge keels, a deep cockpit and space and comfort both inside and deckside. This boat is equally suited for single handed and family cruising.

This example has had no expense spared, by the current owner, on a recent extensive refit, including replacement of standing and running rigging, decking and windows. Down below, is open and spacious, with a galley, comfortable saloon and sleeping accommodation, with crew berth/s, including a separate heads and double berth in the forward cabin. The accommodation is complimented by plenty of stowage, new upholstery, modern woodwork and new headlining throughout.

The boat has been priced competitively and so for anybody looking for a spacious, easy to sail and classic looking cruiser, in commission, this boat is essential viewing. Finally, the boat is being sold with a full history, plans and a photographic record of the refit and a recent survey.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
