1983 Colvic Traveller 28
The Colvic Traveller 28 is renowned for being solidly built and this one appears to be no exception. With plenty of room on deck as well as in the cabin, she is spacious and comfortable. A large aft deck with full cockpit enclosure extends the living area. She would make an excellent cruiser for gently exploring the coasts, the inland waterways and could also be considered for living aboard. A March 2021 survey report is available on request.
The Colvic Traveller 28 offers 4 berths in two cabins with 6’6” of headroom. The forward cabin has a V berth with an infill which can be converted into a double berth. The saloon has a double settee offset to Port with a central table which drops and converts to s second double berth.
The galley off to starboard has a sink with pressurised hot (heated via calorifier) and cold water, three gas hob with grill and oven, fridge. The saloon and forward cabin with blue upholstery. Radio/CD player, TV/DVD. The heads off to starboard with marine toilet and sink.
The cockpit which is large has seating for seven people and is a great entertainment area. There is a full cockpit enclosure. There is also a large foredeck and aft swim platform which makes moving around the boat and getting on and off easy.

The 1983 Colvic Traveller 28 hull, deck and superstructure are moulded in white GRP. Internal joinery in teak and teak faced plywood. This boat has been owned by the current owner for a short period only selling as he has decided to go back to sail.

I purchased this with the intent on going down through the French Waterways however given the current situation this no longer seems to be an option, so I am returning to a sailing yacht. I spent a considerable amount of time and effort preparing Capercaillie over the winter so someone will benefit from a ready to go boat.
