About this Colvic Countess 37 DS


The Colvic Countess 37 Deck Saloon is a capable offshore cruising yacht, well proven for long distance liveaboard cruising. Their attractive lines and high volume interior offer generous, comfortable cruising for their length whilst the protected cockpit and wide decks inspire confidence in adverse conditions. 'Odin' is finished to a far higher standard than most, is still in her original ownership and is in very good condition for her age. She has been very well maintained with many upgrades across the years including a bow thruster and recent very lightly used sails.
