Arvor 20, 'Viking', Oostende
Arvor 20, 85hp Nanni diesel engine with shaft drive, semi planing hull, trailerable
Arvor 20s offered many design features that were quite ahead of their time, featuring fully enclosed hardtops that are now everywhere. Over the production run Arvor released Series 1, 2 and 3, originally with the 85hp, five-cylinder turbo 2.5L Nanni diesel delivering 19-20kt wide-open throttle and an efficient planing cruise of around 14-15kt burning 10L/h. At trolling speeds you get four to five litres per hour, making the package a fuel efficient long-range contender with its 80-litre fuel capacity, combined with all of the advantages of longevity and safety provided by the diesel.
The cockpit of the Arvor 20 is huge and freeboard is quite reasonable, making it an ideal day boat for fishing, diving or cruising. The smallish berths allow limited overnighting and the cabin is a little compact due to the full walk-around decks either side. However, all these features combine in an excellent and very workable package that is especially suited to mooring.
