Vizanya : For Sale, Autumn 2016
The above photograph of Vizanya shows her unique feature; a cockpit at the stern rather than amidships. The photograph is from the Woodenships website where she is For Sale for £9,950 (August 2016). The sales pitch explains, “This is a very rare aft cockpit 9 ton Hillayrd, there were very few built with this cockpit arrangement and we believe only one other in this size. The very large, comfortable and deep cockpit is superb for coastal cruising, offering a lot of space to move around and sit in comfort. The main cabin is still very similar to the centre cockpit version, although there are two excellent pilot berths forward of the saloon which is not seen in other Hillyards. An interesting yacht which has been in long ownership”
