If You’ve Ever Thought Twin Engines Are Over-rated – You’re right!
Don’t get me wrong, twin engines have their place, particularly in bigger, faster boats; but to my mind the sub-35ft sector simply has too many twin engined models. I mean, think of all the drawbacks:
They’re more expensive to fed diesel to
They’re more expensive to maintain
They’re more expensive to repair or refit if something goes wrong
They’re take up more room in the boat
They can be tricky to get to grips with if you’re not used to manoeuvring a twin engined boat
The corollary of this is that single engined boats excel where twin engined boats fall down, and this Viki 32 is no exception.
If you keep up to date with developments on the new boat front you may have noticed the launch by Marex of its single engined 32ft coupe model not that long ago, to rave reviews. The boat testers waxed lyrical about its suprising manoeuvrability, easy maintenance and ‘astonishing fuel efficency’.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on an elegant boat with similar appeal, for a fraction of the cost of the established Scandinavian marque, then this Viki 32 Fly could be the boat for you.
This 2005 model is in simply outstanding condition. It has 370hrs on the clock (averaging about 50hrs of careful use per season) and has been impeccably maintained. I have sold a number of boats for the owner and I have to say that he really knows how to look after a boat. I love working with him because it makes my job so easy! I’d be surprised if you can find a nicer example than this anywhere.
The Viki 32 Fly is a boat that has enduring appeal, with its fully teak decks throughout, teak capped coamings all around the hull and rich dark wood finishes in the interior. It’s also a boat that has the practicality and capability to match its looks. From the wide side decks to the high rails all the way around the boat, and the deep swim platform, this is a boat that you will feel secure on both at sea and in the harbour.
The big single Yanmar diesel shaftdrive motor gives the boat a good turn of speed and means that she is sure-footed underway. She is more than capable of some extended coastal cruising… on a shoestring fuel budget I might add! She is fully equipped with all the nav equipment you could need, including Furuno GPS Chartplotter and Radar, Raymarine VHF and Hummingbird Sounder. With the large chart table set to starboard and the fantastic visibility through the one-piece screen, it’s plain to see this boat’s cruising credentials. The central helm position on the flybridge, the planted feel of the shaftdrive and the powerful bowthruster make this boat a breeze to berth.
The accommodation on board ‘aint half bad either. The interior strikes a very nice balance between sturdy practicality and luxury. The quality of the fixtures and fittings is top notch and the facilities are extensive, including a 2-ring gas hob and oven, refrigerator, holding tank, macerator, and Eberspacher heating. With 4 fixed berths in 2 separate cabins (along with another occasional double in the saloon) it would make an ideal cruising boat for a couple or small family, with the option to have more guests overnight if the need arises.
With the short video tour I really haven’t been able to show this boat off to its full potential, but hopefully this gives you some idea of the quality of this boat. The only reason that we’ve listed the boat as is (notwithstanding my scheduling issues!) is because I know the boat and I know the owner, and he shares my exacting standards. If you come to have a look at this boat I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
I’m sure you’ll have some questions, so please ask away by sending me an e-mail or calling me on our London number 020 3651 5391.
