Remarks:

A small but tough four berth motorsailer which had an engine top end overhaul and new propeller in 2020. Originally fitted out and lived on in north west England for many years (thus the low engine hours) by a retired carpenter, much of the interior woodwork, particularly in the forecabin, is of a high professional standard. The wheelhouse has double folding doors, allowing it to range from fully enclosed to fully open via a number of intermediate stages. This Colvic Watson 23.5 was purchased by the current owner and a friend in 2020 and was delivered across country to the east coast by lorry. She offers great scope as a capable and comfortable cruising motorsailer, or once again as a small liveaboard vessel.
