1997 Colvic Countess 33

Colvic Countess 33 - Description

1997 Colvic Countess 33 deck saloon, sloop rig, with Vetus M4.14 33hp inboard diesel engine. Hull produced by Colvic in 1988 and the boat was carefully fitted out over the following 9 years or so. Domino is a super spacious cruiser with loads of headroom for the taller sailor. For 33 feet she has loads of accommodation within her beamy hull and storage compartments everywhere you look. Sleeping for 7 and separate, private cabins and heads; she's ideal for the family or a boat share. Easy to sail, she has proven to be a safe and reliable boat, mainly used in the Solent with longer trips to France and the Channel Islands. Small blisters were identified on the hull about 9 years ago but have not caused any issues to date, with the boat benefitting from wintering ashore. Now ashore for the winter. Recently reduced and priced to sell before moorings due early 2024 - this is a lot of boat for the money. Available to view by appointment at Birdham Pool Marina.
