Alan Hill designed the Vivacity 24 for Russell Marine in 1969, offering better accommodation in a higher-volume hull with good sailing performance. Russell Marine had a long production run into the early 1980s. They offer good accommodation for the size, with about 5' 7" maximum headroom in the saloon. Yachting Monthly described the Vivacity 24 as a genuine family coastal cruising boat with reasonable cruising performance, good seakeeping and some nice safety features.

The inboard engine is inoperative and the cockpit engine controls are in very poor condition but the Vivacity 24 was designed and fitted to be powered by an outboard motor. The boatyard clearance at Northwich, Cheshire, does not allow time for preparation for sale. Craning and road transport are available on site.

Accommodation: The saloon has a dinette to starboard, with a table which drops to create a smallish double berth. Galley opposite with a moulded unit for cooker, sink and icebox. Aft of the galley is a deep quarterberth. The interior has a neat moulded headlining.

A louvred door separates the saloon from the heads and the focsle.

Offered as seen, lying at Weaver Shipyard, on the River Weaver at Northwich, Chshire. CW8 1LB
