Alan Buchanan 30 Viking Class Yacht
Remarks :
This beautiful Wooden Sloop Yacht, Lying in North Wales, built by French Bros, Battlebridge, Colchester in 1961 to an Alan Buchanan Viking Class design. Having extensive works this sloop cruiser has undergone a 5 year exterior renovation to include full deck repair, engine re-build, new standing rigging, new furler system for genoa etc. The interior is still in need of attention although all equipment is operational. This yacht must be seen! Lying Conwy.
Owning a wooden sailboat can be challenging, especially to anyone who has little or no experience of DIY. In fact a wooden sailboat restoration project should not be contemplated without an understanding of what will be involved. However there are few pleasures more rewarding if you have skills than to see a wooden sailboat fully restored to its former glory. Wooden sailboat restoration is a hobby quite separate from learning to use a sailboat

Owners Remarks
This beautiful Wooden Sloop Yacht, Lying in North Wales, is for sale as the owner is not realising sufficient time to use her.  Viking is a classic wooden cruising racer originally built to order for the 1962 Fastnet race. She has a combination of classic lines, excellent stability in all weathers and good speed under sail. The present owners have spent that last five years renovating her.  This has included a full engine rebuild, new standing rigging and furling headsail system, plus renovation to the hull and top-decks.  She is now ready for updating and finishing below decks and there is great scope to personalise her to your requirements.
