If your after a good, reliable and stable platform from which to start your sailing career, then you will be hard pushed to find better than this Colvic. For the money she represents great value from her low hours inboard Nanni, her hew headlinings and rewire. She has everything you need to get started and has been antifouled and polished within the last month.She feels larger than the average 26 footer thanks to her generous 9 foot beam. She can sleep 4 in comfort and has a decent galley with oven, heads with marine toilet and decent storage.
Below decks is in good order. All the headlinings and bulkheads were vinyl clad giving greater light to the interior. The headroom is a non to shabby 5'8" which is very acceptable in a 26 footer.
The cabin is entered from the companionway. To port is a long settee/berth with a removable table at the forward bulkhead. Opposite is the midships linear galley with gas fuelled Eastham Maxol oven with 2-burner hob and grill. There is a single stainless steel sink with pressurised fresh water. Coming aft is a ice box compartment with lid and an additional seating area which then extends aft beneath the cockpit giving another single berth.
Forward of the saloon bulkhead is a heads compartment to port with Jabsco sea toiulet and a large storage cupboard opposite on the starboard side.
Forward cabin with closing door. V-berth with storage below. Opening roof hatch for ventilation.
Warm and cosy interior with gimballed oil lamps.
The boat is located on a jetty berth at the beautiful Royal Quays Marina. To arrange a viewing please call David or Matt on - Click here to reveal phone number - /strong>
