1981 Colvic Watson 26

Shotley Gate, United Kingdom

£10,750

The Colvic Watson 26 is strongly built and compact little motorsailor. She boasts a suprisingly spacious interor for her size. This Colvic was professionally fitted out by a French Boatyard before crossing the channel to explore the English coastline. Plenty of plus points to this great little boat!
