Broker's Comments

The Colvic Watson 34 is a popular and well regarded ketch rigged motor-sailor and this 1984 model is a great example offering spacious accommodation, with space to relax in the cockpit and saloon, with the master cabin aft of the cockpit.

Engine is accessed through the cockpit floor with sound proofing panels.

A robust motor sailor with a powerful engine to ensure you can reach destinations in good time even when the wind is against you.

This Colvic Watson 34 could be a perfect liveaboard, a fantastic long distance cruiser or a business opportunity as this vessel comes with its own website as an air B&B. It has been extensively updated and modernised in recent years yet still has a classic feel.

The rigging has all been replaced along with new sails and a new rubber epoxy. She is powered by a Beta Marine engine with low hours and a bow thruster allowing for easy mooring. She comes with Solar panels which are controlled through a victron smart battery charger.

This Colvic Watson 34 appears to be in great condition.
