The Colvic Liberator is a well tested cruising yacht designed by Ed Dubois and highly regarded for their good performance and sea keeping abilities. Offering comfortable accommodation and a spacious cockpit they are also easily sailed shorthanded and make good passagemakers, often considered a great alternative to a Sigma 33 or Westerly Storm. Jacana was professionally fitted out to a high standard from new and has a good inventory including autopilot, recent standing rigging, diesel heating and more.
