Brokers comments:

It has been said that few yacht designers manipulated the Universal and International Sailing Rules to greater advantage than Frank Paine. Perhaps best known for the J Class YANKEE (1929) and Bermuda Race record holder HIGHLAND LIGHT (1931), his main body of work was in the 6 and 8 Metre (International) and Q and R (Universal) Rule classes. VIVEKA’s lines more than hint of her origins as a smaller YANKEE.

The current owner has embarked on what can only be described as an immaculate restoration, the structural aspects of which are now complete. This is a unique opportunity to finish this project; the owner free to select her inventory and define her final specification.

VIVEKA hits that sweet spot at 72 foot – comparable with the Fife designed HALLOWEEN and LATIFA; large enough to offer substantial accommodation but without the need for a large crew – indeed her former owner sailed her round the World – much of it on his own !
