Cruiser International Vee Express 267 – Fitted with 2x Volvo Penta Petrol Engines
We have carried out a second Pre Purchase Survey in as many weeks of a Cruiser International V sports boat, the brokers again being the Norfolk Yacht Agency (NYA) Brundall, inspection undertaken at their well equipped Service Centre – where their staff are always on hand to help.
With the help of Tiffany being in command of speed trials we carried out engine performance tests etc and achieved very respectable speeds of 28 mph in the de-restricted zone
This model of cruiser has a long dolphin nose design, being a useful foredeck area for rope handling etc
The steering console is equipped like a performance sports car

View of interior being roomy and comfortable
This boat is designed with a front V cabin and aft cabin under the aft cockpit, as well as the classic push down table to add extra berthing. The helm station offers a good all round visibility and there is a nice comfortable cockpit.
The main findings of this inspection was that the boat was suffering from lack of TLC and equipment corrosion. The steering installation needs attention / servicing but nothing that cannot be fixed for minimal expenditure. As with all engines of this vintage (1970s) we always recommend a mechanical inspection to protect the buyer’s investment
