Viking 20 Wide Beam Cabin Cruiser, Yamaha 9.9hp High Thrust four stroke Outboard.
The boat has not been used for around 6 or 7 years, my father in law took her out of the water to refit her and gave up. I took on the project but have just not had the time to do much. The boat is currently moored on the Thames near Pangbourne.
The engine has not been run in 6 or 7 years so is likely to require a service. It was winterised prior to being laid up and was hardly used prior to be laid up.
I have replaced the telefax Steering cable although it needs connecting up to the engine.
In terms of using the boat as is, it would not take much to get the boat up and running. It will need a new boat safety scheme test / certificate.
The boat needs an interior refit but does include a brand new set of cushions and some head lining material. It had a new cover when the boat was laid up a few years ago. The front windows leak however this should be a simple repair that would require the window frames being reseated in mastic and glass reseated in glazing silicone. As a result of this the interior got quite damp and so it needed to be stripped and refitted. I have a brand new set of interior cushions which would cost around £700 to £800 or more. It just requires the carpet linning to be fitted to the sides and the headlining to be replaced. I do have have some headlining that can go with the boat along with other bits and pieces. Once the windows are sealed this would be a fairly easy refit that could be done easily.
Unfortunately I don't have the time to complete this project and don't want to see her not used for another summer. This would be an ideal summer project for somebody with some time on their hands to enjoy her. These boats usually sell for around £5500 to £7000 in good condition. The engine and cushions alone cost my father in law around £3000. This could be a great boat for somebody once refitted. I am open to sensible offers as I really want to see her being used. I would also consider selling her without the engine or cushions and would like wise consider offers for the interior cushions to recoup some of the money that has been spent on the boat.
I am open to offers on the boat although please bear in mind that the engine is probably worth around £1400 if I sold this separately.
I have added some photos of the boat to a Flickr album, you should be able to see them here,
The boat can be viewed near Pangbourne, please feel free to give a call to view her.
