Viko Yachts UK arrive from Poland
There’s been a growing trend for Europe's leading yacht manufacturers to look to Poland for boat building skill. Outsourcing to Polish firms delivers high quality work and great value for money. Small independent boat brands in Poland are also gaining recognition for skills and value.
Now in 2015 a Polish Yacht brand is ready to make a big splash in the UK boat market. Viko Yachts have been producing affordable sailing cruisers for some 30 years and currently build around 200 twenty-one to thirty footers per year in a state of the art factory in Poznan.
A new dealer operation has been launched for the UK that will bring Viko Yachts to the attention of the British boating community. VIKO YACHTS UK - a division of Legend Yachts UK Ltd - have acquired distribution rights for the whole of the UK and Ireland.
Four boat models for the UK
Viko Yachts UK will be marketing the new 21, the 25, 27 and the new 30. All models are available with swing, lifting or fixed fin keels so can be berthed economically on drying moorings and the first three models are easily trailerable.
These four boat models have been designed for family comfort and ease of sailing, but it’s expected they will also satisfy the competitive owner on the club racing circuit.
The first Vikos to arrive at the company's Hayling Island headquarters will be a 21 and a 30.
Prices? They are expected to sell with a full specification, and including VAT, at under £20,000 and under £45,000 respectively.
