This Colvic Watson motor sailer is offered for sale in a part completed state, and is therefore an opportunity for a buyer to achieve a life time ambition by completing a project which will have a significant value well in advance of the present asking price.
We are not sure of the date of the hull and have estimated 1985. The hull has never been launched.
The boat is lying in a boatyard where she can be inspected by appointment. She is an exceptionally heavy vessel, weighing 14 tons.
Many of the spare parts still to be fitted for completion are available. There is a 3 blade propeller, stern tube, prop shaft with flexible coupling and stuffing box.
Also included are two pre owned engines, a Ford D6 and a Ford D4 . Neither have been fitted. There is a PRM hydraulic gear box. The engine bay contains an isotherm stainless steel calorifier, a large stainless steel water tank, and a fuel tank of about 40 gallons.
Cables have been run through the vessel and electrics need fitting. There are no batteries.
The yard where the vessel is lying have said that if necessary they are able to complete the work required in order to commission her.
The sale is necessary as the previous owner who carried out the work is deceased.
Prior to launching, in order to comply with the Recreational Craft Directive, a CE mark assessment should be carried out if the owner plans to sell within five years. If the new owner intends to keep the boat for five years or more, he would not be required to get a CE mark.
