  Built? Moulding from A.F. and topped and fitted out by the old NBYC probably at the old Compass Craft yard in Horning.  There is one of their's which although a standard length is wider in the beam and a very nice boat as a result.

hi bill,

        i hired a viceroy from NBYC in the very early 70's and i am sure they were then based in wroxham, somewhere near to what is now roy's diy dept or where smith's run from.    any idea when they moved from horning, i remember an elderly couple running the yard.

p s   my broom skipper was 30 x 10ft 6 in


tell me where i am pilot,
not where i should be

  The Viceroys were built when NBYCo was in Hoveton - in those days NBYCo was based where Geo.Smiths are now (Smiths were based where Brinks daylaunches are now).

Viceroy 3 was built in (or for) the 1975 season

  Hi Craig
According to your website history, NBYCo made 2 Viceroy IIIs. One, 1975 J625, and one 1979 M142. J625 was sold in 1979. The one I am talking about is M142 previously called Zigeuner and now re-named, Krysella II. This is the boat that I am trying to trace the history of. Thanks

  Oops Blush  forgot that complication - however, NBYCo were still in Hoveton in 1979, but I'm afraid I don't know what happened to her between their ownership and becoming Zigeuner - I'll add her new name to the database, do you know when it changed?

  Hi, I am sure you have the history of Viceroy by now, but it was my father, Alastair Newman, who designed her when he owned The Norfolk Broads Yachting Company in Church Road, Wroxham, next door to Jeckells, in those days. The boat builder was Russell Smith, who was also the yard foreman. She is indeed built on a Bourne 30 hull (From Aquafibre in Rackheath), and was unusual in that she had blue gel coat underneath her hull from just above her waterline. He built 4 Viceroys.
