Yacht: Viveka

Submit Information on this Yacht


The present owner, Merl Peterson, indicated ‘Viveka’ was used for tracking U-boats in World War II.

Viveka has sailed 1.5 times around the world with Merl Petersen at the helm. She was purchased from Merl by an owner who wants everything to be done to perfection so she was brought to Rutherford’s boat shop for a complete restoration.

Restored in 1992-3.
