On this boat you can cheerfully wave in your t-shirt to sailors deeply ensconced in their rain suits trying to shelter from rain and wind. This Colvic Watson polyester motor sailor, was yard built and has a lot of space below decks due to its generous beam. Weighing in at 15 tons and with a moderate sail area this vessel is a real motorsailer and the sails only need reefing in stormy weather. The closed wheelhouse means you can sail all year round. The owner, a former sailor has always maintained the boat very carefully. She is well equipped, including a radar, a permanently installed aggregate and bow thruster. It's ketch rigged; mainsail and genoa are recent, only the mizzen is older ,but because of limited use it’s still in good condition.
The accommodation is fine, with from fore to aft a cabin with two large bunks one above the other and storage, cupboard space and sink. In the main cabin there is a U-shaped seat with a long seat opposite. The long seating can be converted into two bunks one above the other. Beyond that is the shower / head and to port the spacious galley. There are steps leading into the cockpit which has all equipment necessary including the (professional Rheinstrom) thruster and aggregate. Then aft is a spacious cabin with a comfortable double berth and plenty of storage space.
