Sorry guys if this is the wrong section but couldn't find a "boats for sale" bit. Found a section on property but that's about all.

Located ashore in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, this Viking 20 High Line was built specifically for us in May 2012 with many factory fitted additions and alterations. A 2012 SBS twin axle road trailer is also available for £1550 (current new cost is £2800).

Since taking delivery, the boat has only spent 32 days in the water on the Thames and Norfolk Broads, with approximately 90 hours use recorded. When not in use, the boat is kept on the trailer at our home address in Marlow, Bucks.

Main features include Honda BF20 outboard engine with power tilt, hot & cold water, blown warm air heating, 240V shore power, combined two burner gas hob & sink, gas oven, 12/240V Waeco fridge, acrylic canvas cockpit canopy, shower, Thetford cassette toilet.

Powder blue upholstery in cabin, beige carpeted cabin sides, Alcantara type head lining, dark grey fitted carpet in the cockpit and dark blue fitted carpet in the cabin. Cockpit cushions in cream vinyl with blue piping.

ADDITIONS/MODIFICATIONS OVER STANDARD HIGH LINE SPEC AT TIME OF BUILD:

Two stainless steel/teak bathing platforms with stainless hoop to allow stern-on mooring.
Upgrade from manual tilt Mariner engine to power tilt Honda engine.
TV aerial.
Midships cleats
Bow cleats in lieu of fairleads.
Additional recovery eye on bow.
Stainless U-bolts on transom for attaching trailer ratchet straps.
Bow roller.
Fender eyes.
Additional hand rails on cockpit coamings.
Twin horn.
Two screen wipers.
Custom made acrylic canvas canopy in lieu of standard PVC canopy. Privacy screen for rear window.
Opening/sliding window on starboard side of cabin (£300 extra)
Gas locker enlarged to accommodate two 3.9kg propane gas bottles (standard arrangement accommodates one gas bottle)
Vetus “make to break” on-both-off battery isolator switch.
Fuel locker enlarged to accommodate additional 12lt plastic fuel tank (22lt + 12lt in total).
Co-pilot seat on pedestal with foot/storage box.
Faria Instruments tacho/engine hours gauge.
240V shorepower.
Low level lights in cockpit.
Propex Heatsource gas fired blown warm air heating.
Stable door from cockpit to cabin.
Doors in vertical sides of forward v-berths to allow easy access to under berth storage without disturbing made up beds.
Additional moulded shelves in cabin.
Hitachi 19” flat screen TV.
JVC radio/CD and four speakers.
Four double 240V sockets in cabin.
Re-positioned gas hob/sink to allow additional work space.
Standard upholstery foam upgraded to firmer foam throughout boat.
Small cockpit table and pedestal.

All documentation including CE marking and BSS certificate available. Boat and trailer have had very little use since delivery and can only be described as highly specced , in “as new” condition and ready to go for the 2013 season.

Please contact us if you require a further detailed description and/or photos.

We will deliver the boat or the boat & trailer free of charge to a suitable marina/yard or slipway on the Norfolk Broads. Delivery to other waterways by negotiation. Cranage or slipway charges to be paid by purchaser.

Many thanks.

Sounds a really well equipt cruiser. From your previous posts is trailer boating too difficult and you are going for bigger on a permanent mooring? Just interested as I am having a tussle with the same. Do I buy something I can trail to Ireland or go for bigger and more comfortable. But I am looking at rag and stick and have all but given up the Broads as my first base.

Trailboating, hmmmm.

For a week or two away, the hassle and grief to launch and recover is acceptable for a heavy 20 footer. For one night away, say a Saturday, IMO I just don't think it's worth all the effort of faffing around.

The plan was for 2013 to put the boat in the water at a marina on the Thames from late March to late October. That way we could just pop down to the boat, even if it was just to have a drink and chill out. Then, in August, we'd recover the boat and bring it to the Broads for our three week annual holiday and then slip it back in the Thames on our return. We've got a good deal on 7 months mooring in a marina and, rather than pay them to store the boat on the hard for 5 months, we'd bring it home and look after it. Note that in late 2012, early 2013, it's almost impossible to cruise the Thames due to iffy conditions and lock closures.

In a nutshell, if you don't mind the grief of launching and recovering for a day trip or one overnight or have a smallish trailboat, then trailing's fine. Our previous boat was a Mayland Maestro 18 footer which was a doddle to launch & recover due to it's light weight but had no headroom, no space, no heating, no gas, no hot water. Great as a day boat but nothing more.

However, all that said, our disabled daughter is moving to Wales this year so nearly all of our leisure time will be taken up travelling to and from Wales and no time for the boat. Alas, the boat makes no financial sense for the forseeable future and we'll need the money to finance our daughter's future.

HTH.

Many thanks for that. You have confirmed my thinking. I love the Shannon/Erne but whilst there are countless motor cruisers for hire there are very few sail.
I hope you get a quick sale and good luck.
