1986 Colvic Countess 28

Colvic Countess 28 - Description

1986 Colvic Countess 28, sloop rig and bilge keel with Yanmar 29hp diesel inboard engine. ‘Jovi’ is a handy sized yacht, like most Colvics, beamy in comparison to the overall length. Featuring a desirable bilge keel with encapsulated ballast, ‘Jovi’ was described by a surveyor in 2017 as having been robustly built by reputable constructors. In the last couple of years the boat has received maintenance to include new domestic battery, new throttle cable and water pump impeller. This yacht could be considered a cosmetic project, showing some signs of age, but is priced accordingly and could be a good buy for the right person. 2017 pre-purchase survey available to view for information. Viewings by appointment at Birdham Pool Marina.
