After undergoing an extensive refit, "Colena" is being offered for sale and is available for the coming season. A one-of-a-kind classic William Fife design and built by Dickies.

The current owner re-discovered her in poor condition on the Clyde in 2002 and undertook on an extensive restoration project before being re launched in 2003. During Colena’s refit everything you could possibly think of was done, her oak frames were repaired/ replaced, new teak decks laid over marine ply, new rudder made in epoxy/glass sheathed ply fitted with hydraulic steering, all new electrics, new Lancing Marine Ford 85hp engine and much more… Viewing highly recommended.

Owners Comments

The engine has a large flywheel and therefore swings a big prop at low rpm which means that she is just ticking over at 7knots and therefore very economical to run. I also like the full headroom bow to stern and the aft berths behind the engine giving 8 berths in total. The rear access below decks from the dog house is a great feature together with the mid ship access.

Finally the ride in a rough sea is superb. Only a wooden boat gives the combination of weight and natural buoyancy to smooth out the "bounce on the bow".
