Originally launched in 1969 and extensively restored by Norman R. Wright & Sons between 2013-2017, Colorado is one of the Halvorsen Viking series of classic flybridge motor cruisers.
Whilst maintaining the original character and styling, which Halvorsen's are still admired and loved, Colorado's refit ensured that she will be cruising for many years to come.
Improvements have included items such as;
New 160hp Yanmar engines, gear boxes, alternators, propellers, shafts, exhaust system, engine controls and instruments installed in 2017.
Engine room refurbished
Hot water system and fresh water plumbing replaced
Electric toilet, toilet pump, macerator pump, black water holding tank and skin fittings replaced.
Bilge pumps and hoses replaced.
Fiber-glassed the hull and hull bottom and replaced stern and rudder tubes and all skin fittings

Cabin windows replaced with new tinted glass sliding windows installed.
Simrad NSS multifunction Sounder and GPS plotter with touch screen navigation charts (Navionics Silver Charts) installed.
Simrad VHF radio installed
Simrad auto pilot with repeater on flybridge installed.
New hydraulic steering fitted.
Original timber decking removed and replaced with new marine plywood underdeck and non slip fiberglass decks
Replaced saloon galley and forward deck heads (ceiling)
New forward cabin fitted
Teak and holly flooring laid in the galley and forward compartment
New forward hatch installed
Stove, gas installation and gas detector all upgraded.

A fantastic cruiser for entertaining family and friends with a great one level saloon and aft deck and equally perfect for cruising the bay or running up and down the coast.
