Broker's Comments

Boatshed Falmouth are pleased to offer for sale this popular Colvic Watson. The Colvic Watson was and still is a very popular motor sailer which offers a nicely proportioned wheelhouse with good allround visability. She has generous accommodation below in 2 cabins, the main cabin and the forward cabin which are separated by the head.

There are always plenty of Colvics for sale but finding a really good one is hard. Look no further.
This example is in good condition all round and has been used for coastal cruising. Please note the photos were taken with the Bowsprit removed. The Bowsprit is available and replacement is a simple operation.

The owner wrote about this boat: "When Looking to buy this boat I wanted a very safe sea-worthy boat that I could share with my 80 year old sailing father. He wanted comfort and a warm place to be inside the wheel house rather than suffering the elements in a wet cockpit. I looked at a number of other boats , and Harriett was by far and away the best example I found. She has been professionally built with high quality joinery and has an immensely reassuring motion at sea , worthy of her life-boat designer"

These boat details are subject to contract.
