Meet L’Ambience. An impressive, spacious and cleverly thought out Colvic Sunquest 53 for sale here in the South West.

As you can see from the photos the saloon layout is thoroughly thought out, with a spacious and open living space, sunken galley and separate bar everything has its place. She has huge rear deck space with fixed cushioned and benefits from the open flybridge for wind-in-the-hair piloting with seating for friends and family too.

L’ambience is somewhat a local celebrity, regularly featuring on Torquay promotional imagery due to her pride of place position on the marina, her classic silhouette, and impressive visual presence.

She will comfortably sleep 6, and having previously been used for corporate days and private hire has been maintained according to strict coding guidelines. We think she will make the perfect vessel for a live-aboard, continued use for private hire or even for a family simply looking to spread out on board.
