Colvic Watson 31
One of Colvic’s most successful ranges stemmed from a mid-70s partnership with design office GL Watson. Colvic Watsons were produced in a range of sizes from 22ft upwards and shared a rugged motorsailer character. One of the most popular models was this 31 ft 6in model from 1978. She had a big engine and small rig, canoe stern and full, high bows. Bermudian sloop or ketch rig were offered, with the occasional gaffer as well. There was a range of interiors, with four to five berths as standard. Quality varied greatly but the hulls themselves were very sound. She was also marketed as the Navrik 32.
