Description: Buchanan Viking 31 Huon Pine sloop
Katandra has the famous Buchanan heritage. The Buchanan Viking class was another successful design from Allen Buchanan, one of the UK's most highly regarded naval architects years ago. The Viking was designed as a fast cruising yacht with a relatively shallow draft making her ideal to access shallow waters. To enable her to stand up to her canvas she has a healthy ballast ratio with a 2.18 tonne external ballast keel, and a most remarkable hull shape midships with a big belly and a sharp turn to the bilge giving her the distinctive brandy glass shape. This not only gives the hull tremendous buoyancy making her a stiff boat in a breeze, but also gives the saloon a vast amount more space than a comparable yacht of her era, when aboard it is hard to believe she is only 31' on deck.
