Offers are invited for this little used and comfortable cruiser. With her very economical diesel engine and efficient sailing rig she is perfect for sailing the islands and getting away from it all!
A very good example of the Colvic UFO manufactured by in 1975 to the Holman & Pye design. The hull lay in a boatyard until 1997 when construction was finally completed and the boat first launched.
She has been wintered on land every year since then with the exception of winter 2011.
Even since her first launching she has been only lightly used and has exceptionally low hours on the reliable Petter engine.
She would make a comfortable small cruiser for a couple or small family.
