Buchanan Viking Class Sloop - 1965 - Asking £14,950,but open to negotiation.
A very attractive classic yacht designed by Alan Buchanan.
The Viking Class design dates from the 1950’s and was built by a number of different yards. Over the years the designer modified and improved the overall lines to provide a good cruising yacht that also rated well under the RORC rule - the Viking Class has an excellent record for racing and winning many off-shore events during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
This example was built by William Wyatt, West Mersea in 1964/65.
Under current ownership for almost 10 years and extensively refitted in 2010/11, 2015 and again Oct-December 2019, 'Freydis' is ready for relatively painless wooden boat ownership for the next five years.
A copy of the latest re-insurance survey can be made available for inspection at our office.
