General comments by vendor

New engine 18 months ago and a recent repaint. Viceroy is as good as new and is a delight to cruise in. We have really loved being on Viceroy these last five years, sharing with friends and family.

We've made some magical memories, and we would thoroughly recommend seeing the boat to any prospective new owner.

Our priorities have changed and as we live in Norfolk, we've decided to cut down on travelling, and buy a boat for cruising the Norfolk Broads.
