About this Custom Alan Buchanan Viking Class Sloop


Wooden Ships Comments on this Alan Buchanan Viking Class Sloop Built by the current owner for himself and launched in 1983. The owner is a time served shipwright and completed the boat to a very good standard. In the early 1980’s when the idea of building a yacht had surfaced, the owner remembered the line plans of a Buchanan yacht in one of the magazines. After visiting Buchanan himself and discussing his needs, they settled on the plans of the Viking Class. The boat was built in a purpose made dry shed on the banks of Pill Creek near Bristol, a village steeped in boating history and closely connected to the Pilot Cutters. She has been berthed in Pill creek since her launch, cruised from here around the Bristol Channel, south Wales and West Country. The Viking was a successful design for Buchanan and proved to be a fast and easily handled cruising boat. The relatively shallow draft of 4’7” means she can access areas deeper boats cannot and with a ballast ratio of 43% she is a very stiff and weatherly boat. A well maintained and solid cruising boat, built and sailed by the current professional shipwright owner.   Length on Deck 30’10” Length Waterline 24’1” Beam 9’ Draft 4’7” Displacement 5.75 tons Thames tonnage 9TM     Construction Carvel planked in Scottish larch with nearly all full length planks. Copper rivet fastened to steam bent oak timbers. Seams caulked and payed with white lead. Iroko transom. Fabricated stainless steel strap floors fastened with silicone bronze bolts. External cast iron ballast keel fastened with stainless bolts. 2 bolts drawn in 2005 and found to be in perfect condition. The deck was constructed of yacht laid iroko planking over a marine plywood subdeck. In 1995 the deck was sheathed in epoxy glass cloth and finished with 2 pack paint with non-slip patches. The hull is strengthened with a clamp beneath the beamshelf running from the forecabin to the bridge deck, helping to spread the loads of the rig and the beaching legs when they are in use. Varnished mahogany coachroof coamings with aluminium framed windows and toughened glass. Sheathed plywood coachroof deck on laminated deck beams. Finished externally in 2 pack paint and non-slip Treadmaster patches. Self draining cockpit with laid iroko thwarts. Lifting locker lids into port cockpit locker and aft lazarette. Companion hatch has Perspex washboards with a heavy duty aluminium framed sliding hatch kept in place with heavy dog catches.
