Broker's Comments

1976 Custom Colvin Ketch 41

This is a very special offering and an exceptional boat. We are super pleased to have her in our fleet of sailing vessels!

She is truly one of a kind and will last your and your children's lifetime with her aluminum hull. She is quite the statement on the water with her colorful hull and especially when she is fully rigged. She has been well cared for as can be seen by the years of projects listed in her history and she is ready for her next adventure. Her length overall is 50' so she has a lot of living space. Her engine is practically new.

This is a boat to sail wherever your heart desires, so don't wait any longer. Call for an exclusive showing!
