  • Description

    Colvic Watson 28 for sale. An incredibly strong and robust motor sailor with ketch rig and a good practical layout. Internally she offers a vee berth arrangement in the forepeak, the saloon features a dinette which converts to a double bed, and a good sea berth to port.. The internal joinery is to a good standard.

    JB Rare is a well equipped yacht, she features many navigational instruments such as Radar, GPS, Autopilot etc.  The boat is fitted with a bow thruster and 50hp Thornycroft engine. Domestic equipment includes a heater, battery charger, oven with two burner and grill, a fridge, a separate freezer and TV aerial (note TV removed).

    It is fair to comment that JB Rare would benefit from some cosmetic improvement particularly to the exterior, the varnish work is tired, and the broker suspects the sails,running and standing rigging are likely to require replacement.

    The Colvic Watson 28 is a good solid boat and with a few improvements to JB Rare, she could be a really super boat.
