Linssen Yachts BV began building in the Netherlands in 1949. By the 1970s, Linssen established their reputation and became known as a yacht builder that builds sophisticated, comfortable, and reliable yachts. The Linssen style of building completely unique yachts with recognizable style gathered momentum and in recent years, seventy new Linssen Yachts are built each year.

Boarding this Linssen Yacht from the built in swim platform is convenient. The large transom door opens centerline to the aft deck and the entire transom folds down to connect the aft deck with the water. The teak aft deck is complimented by varnished cap rails and the teak door which leads up to the yacht’s bridge deck. There are two large storage lockers beneath the teak deck that provide access to the steering gear and aft bilge spaces. Engine room access is adequate and found below the bridge steps.

The teak fordeck features three storage areas plus the electronic controls for the windlass.
A robust teak door separates the aft deck from the bridge deck of this Linssen Variotop Express. The teak door drastically reduces noise when cruising along at 24+ knots. This Bridge Deck has a dedicated A/C Unit to ensure this area remains cool enough or warm enough for the day.

The Helm is equipped with a full suite of navigation electronics including a newer Garmin 6212 and Bow Thruster.

If you are considering a two-stateroom express yacht, please call me to discuss the virtues of this Linssen Variotop. I have been at the helm of VIVACE in various conditions and I can report this boat has a sea kindly hull. When cruising at hull speed she makes minimum wake, yet push the throttle down and she leaps onto plane. If conditions really get nautical, you may take spray right over the hardtop but there is no need to worry because the helm is completely protected from the elements. To make long days at the helm even more luxurious, the bridge deck has Air Conditioning and Heat plus there is a comfortable L-shaped settee with table located next to the Captain’s Helm Seat. VIVACE is not only a super vessel, she is being offered by her original owner who is MOTIVATED to sell now!
VIVACE is conveniently located in Fort Lauderdale and this boat is available for inspections any day with appointment.
