General Description

This Colvic UFO 27 was moulded by Colvic in 1985 & then purchased & completed by a Master Boat Builder who launched her in 1986 & has owned her ever since. Fitted with 5 berths, heads, galley & chart table / nav station, complete with GPS, AIS, VHF & Log, she makes for a good family cruiser. Whilst it is fair to say she is in need of a little updating, she has had some significant work completed recently. This includes her Volvo MD5 A engine being reconditioned with new alternator, new exhaust elbow, recon injector pump & reground valves. Also, in 2015, her hull was stripped back, primed & re-antifouled. She has lovely Teak decks & with a little TLC will make a very solid & seaworthy family cruiser. She is currently lying Southampton

Brokers Comments

This Colvic UFO 27 had her hull built by the legendry Colvic Moulders in 1985 and was then professionally fitted out, completed & launched by a Master Boat Builder in 1986, who has owned her ever since. As a result, she was completed using the best quality materials and craftsmanship which are still evident today. Although in need of a little updating & improvement, this yacht has plenty of life left in her yet & could make someone a very solid and sound family cruiser. Her current owner has completed numerous cross channel trips and medium distance cruises in her & has always found her to be a very seaworthy and safe vessel. Fitted with 5 berths, heads, galley & chart table / nav station complete with GPS, AIS, VHF & Log, she makes for a good family cruiser. She is currently lying afloat in Southampton.

Colvic were known for building solid well constructed moulds that were then sold for individuals or businesses to finish & complete. This particular UFO 27 is fortunate to have been finished by a professional boat builder who is now selling her with a heavy heart due to his retirement from sailing. She is currently lying in Southampton & viewing can be arranged through Aspire Boat Sales.
