Viveza

£16,500 open to offers for a June July sale in UK

Viveza is a composite Twister with a twist - she has the same height cabin top as the original wooden Twisters. This makes her much prettier but means that there is 2 inches less headroom - but, down below you are either sitting or in your bunk - and you can still stand under the centre hatch. She is for sale because I want to spend more time with my Wife and dog. She will be sold fully equipped - all I shall remove is my personal gear - there may even be some Scotch left in the drinks locker. She is part 1 Registered and was in England on Brexit day. For some of her history find her on YouTube on My Classic Boat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBJqR44N1Yk&list=RDCMUCDzgEpfq5UCYJOaJYXWHbbQ&start_radio=1&rv=OBJqR44N1Yk&t=3
