Broker's Comments

The Deck Saloon version of the Colvic Countess makes for a very spacious interior without spoiling the exterior styling, the coachroof has a modern look to it and blends well with the overall shape.
Inside this centre cockpit ketch there is a large saloon with good sized galley. The aft cabin has lots of storage space and its own separate en-suite. The fore-cabin is also a good size with the main heads adjacent to it.

This boat was fitted out by my dad { John Skipper living at Spixworth} in 1982 taking 2 years to complete, and was berthed at Lowestoft Cruising Club.
