The Vivacity 24 was designed as a small family cruiser by Allan Hill and built by Russel Marine Ltd. The first Vivacity 24 was built in 1969. The boat was built in both single keel and bilge keel although the bilge keel version was much more popular.
The boat has 2 cabins and will sleep 4 people in comfort, 5 at a push. On board is a toilet and small cooking area and sink. The table in the main cabin converts to a double berth. The fore cabin contains a double or two single berths. The cockpit is spacious with plenty of storage. Almost all Vivacity 24 were powered with an outboard motor.
In conclusion the Vivacity 24 is a small solidly built small cruiser offering good safe coastal crusing with reasonable performance and well laid out accommodation for her size.
