The West Solent One Design is a thoroughbred amongst classic racing yachts. Vivacious is one of the 30 built in the UK through the 1920's. She has had a complete restoration by Speed Marine and her owner during 2010 and was re-launched in 2011. The refit included a new rig, hull renovation and modernising her deck layout for two handed cruising as well as classic regatta racing. Her owner has a complete diary of her restoration available. A recent insurance survey gave her a clean bill of health. An excellent and painless way of entering the classic regatta circuit! She must be viewed.
