Seaward 25 VIKLA IV – SOLD

Seaward 25 VIKLA IV – SOLD






This very smart twin screw motor cruiser was built 2011 and used as Seaward exhibit for 2014 Southampton Boat Show. ‘Vikla IV’ has been maintained A1 condition since new.  Anything showing any signs of wear has been updated including in 2015 & 2016 canopy (keeping serviceable original canopy for Winter use), aerials, roof vents, fenders, new AFM batteries, Scanstrut mast, updated software for electronics etc.

Kept ashore for 7 months each year, professionally antifouled, hull & superstructure polished and varnished each season. Full annual service regime by marine engineers. Most recently May 2017 for the season. All supporting documents available. Unmarked interior & upholstery.

Rarely available on the market, this is a lovely example of the Seaward 25 and is fitted out in Oak joinery. An ideal boat for coastal cruising, ‘Vikla IV’ is equally at home doing cross-Channel work in comfort and safety. With low engine hours and many optional extras – an early viewing and sea trial is therefore recommended.
