GRP sailing yacht Colvic Victor 40 ''Alona'', built in 1987 by Colvic Craft England. Design by John Bennett,  The Colvic Victor 40 offers exceptionally generous accommodations in a characteristic heavy displacement hull with good seakeeping performance Alona is a Colvic Victor 40, the hull of which was purchased in 1989. It was finished fitting out in about 1992, but when we purchased it in 1997 it had not been extensively used. During the last 25 years we have taken it to Venice and back, both passages being through the rivers and canals of France, circumnavigating the coasts of Italy, Croatia, England, Wales and Scotland south of the Great Glen in the process.
