Advertiser's comments

The UFO 27 yacht designed by Holman & Pye with the hull and deck built by Colvic Craft Ltd and fitted out by Gallaghers. A strongly constructed boat, the UFO 27 is quick and nimble and great fun to sail. An excellent cruiser or club racer, she is ideal as a first boat. This UFO 27 is very neat and tidy, good varnished woodwork below and has been well maintained. Four berths between forward cabin and saloon. New Beta Marine 16hp engine fitted 2014 with 136 hours, hull has just been antifouled. Complete with lifejackets, foul weather clothing, charts, spares, inflatable dinghy, stack pack with lazy jacks and a number of older sails.
