Modified 25-foot Colvic


25’ BMU Sloop.

For sale is a 25’ sloop, based upon a Colvic fibreglass ‘Springtide’ hull with deck and cabin top planked with iroko on marine ply. The design is unique in that it combines the timber upperworks of an earlier all-wooden version of the Springtide with the later hull used for the GRP version.

Designed by Kenneth Evans, she offers a lot of space and her shallow draft makes her ideal for rivers and estuaries. The Springtides are known for being strong and stable, and the deep self-draining cockpit makes them ideal family cruisers. This Springtide has only had one owner from new and she has been fitted out by him to a high standard throughout with many useful extras.

The boat is on a trailer (RM Trailers) at home in Mylor Bridge. She is advertised on ApolloDuck where there are several photographs, a video, and more details. The asking price there is £9,000, which I am advised is about right, but because I have now ceased sailing and need to sell I am open to reasonable offers.

Brief specifications are:

Berths: 4.
Cabins: 2.
Heads: 1.
Engine: Yanmar 2GM20 (2011) Diesel. 20.hp. Serviced annually.
Draft 1m.
