Great example of the ever popular Colvic Watson 25'6" model. Supplied as a hull, deck and superstructure along with an engine in 1982 she was then sold in 1987 to an owner who started the fit out in earnest. There is a plate on the boat displaying the name "John Hill - Shipwright" and judging by the standard of the fit out it looks like he was heavily involved. She is well founded, dry throughout and comfortable with excellent equipment. Launched 1989.
