CRUISING YACHT WITH EXTENSIVE REFIT READY TO SAIL, NO MORE TO PAY!

'Free Spirit' is for sale following an extensive professional refit.

Viking yachts were designed in1972 by Ben Lexcen, designer of Australia II - winner of the America Cup). The later Lexcen yachts which are very familiar to South Australian waters were a direct derivative from the Vikings. Viking yachts are forgiving, reliable and have a turn of speed for a cruiser. With the right crew she could be sailed anywhere in South Australian waters and beyond. Kangaroo Island, Port Vincent, Port Lincoln etc etc are at your doorstep and waiting to be explored.

'Free Spirit' is masthead rigged with furling jib, fully battened mainsail, two slab reefing points, lazy jacks and boom bag - this makes her very easy to sail!
This boat really is ready to sail for extended cruising with no expense spared since we've owned the boat over the past five years. I've spent far too much getting this boat to the standard she's at however, I'm 'running out of years' as they say and need to move on.

Unlike almost all boats around this price range (and even some modern production yachts) she will be sold with a current Club Marine Risk Evaluation report by a boat builder, and a gas compliance certificate.
