The Small Yacht Company is pleased to bring you the Viko S26, a rare combination of lively sailing performance and class leading accomodation in an affordable compact package.
The S26 is a boat which can be ordered to suit your specific sailing requirements, whether that be a light displacement, shallow draught and easy rigged trailable model or a stiffer deep bulb keel version for coastal sailing or racing. Depending on the type of keel chosen the minimum draught starts at a beach friendly 35cm which makes it simple to float off a trailer and thanks to clever integrated mast lifting options the rig goes up in a jiffy. Starting at only 1650kg the S26 is surprisingly light to tow. Even the deep bulb keel Viko S26 variant only tips the scales at 1800kg. You would think that such trailer friendly characteristics would come at the expense of internal space and fittings. On the contrary, the S26 boasts class leading 1.8m headroom in the cabin, a sumptuous interior and a vast range of options to customise this cruiser to the owner’s requirements.
UK bound boats will come complete with a fixed mast support bar on the transom for trailering, a furling genoa with UV protection, a fully battened main sail and a lazyjack stack pack system. You can then opt to make these versatile cruisers suit your own personal sailing requirements with a range of further sailing configurations. So, if you want a dinghy-like boat you might opt for a tiller steered, super-light S26 with an easy-launch swing keel and transom mounted outboard. If you prefer that big-yacht feel you might opt for the deep (lifting or fixed) bulb keel, steering wheel pedestal and in-board electric or diesel engine. Various rig options are available too, including 2 sail plans and a separate bow platform with gennaker.
Viko can deliver absolute cockpit comfort in spades, including a sprayhood and cockpit enclosure, seat cushions and back rests as well as flexi teak on the deck and seats. Luxury and comfort continues in the cavernous space below consisting of a large main cabin, separate heads compartment and rear cabin with giant double berth. Customers can add to this by choosing different galley layouts, a fridge, marine heads, hot water and even heating!
So, there is bound to be a Viko S26 which fits your sailing dreams. With prices starting at £48,500 inc VAT those dreams are surprisingly affordable. We look forward to showing you this innovative boat in the marina at M320.
