1980 Colvic Victor 35

Beaulieu, Hampshire


Merluza is an up-together example of the rock solid Colvic Victor 35 design, a fin keeled, centre-cockpit cruising yacht. She was acquired as a set of mouldings in 1980 and was then fitted out by her original and current owner before she was eventually launched in 1996. She was re-engined in 2014 with a Volvo D1-30 ( 488 hours / last serviced March 2023 ) complete with new shaft and prop.. Lots of sails, decent nav and comms kit, plenty of safety kit including recently serviced liferaft. 7 berths. Solid teak joinery. Hull epoxied from new. Thermal insulation to hull topsides and coachroof to reduce condensation in cold conditions. Heating, shorepower, hot and cold water. She has logged 13,114 sea miles and looks forward to further adventures!
