This is a well equipped, bilge keel version of the popular Colvic Countess 28, a comfortable and seaworthy design ideal for family cruising with wide side decks and a spacious interior. In 2016 this Colvic Countess 28 cruised from Cardiff to Inverness visiting Isle of Man, Ireland and the Inner Hebrides, a trip of over 1000 nm. The deep cockpit adds to comfort and safety at sea while the bilge keels allow access to shallow waters and drying out when required.
