Classic wooden sailing yacht for sale

The Viking is a well respected design from Alan Buchanan, a deceptively fast cruising boat with relatively shallow draft. This boat had extensive refits in 2011 and again in 2015 when all recommendations from the 2014 survey were carried out. More recently she has had repairs to the deck with new sections of subdeck. She has good sailing performance combined with a spacious interior for her length. 5 berths. Yanmar 15hp diesel. An attractively priced yacht. Back on the market having been sold very recently, the new owner finding he is not in a position to own and sail a yacht of this size.
