About this Colvic Liberator 35

Fitted with a reliable Volvo Penta engine (and a selection of spares) many new Clipper Instruments, a Plastimo Liferaft and other safety equipment. This Colvic has also received extensive upgrades down below and benfits from new headlining this year. Artful Dodger sleeps 7 in 2 cabins and is ready for viewing in Chatham Marina, Kent.
