I have just taken delivery of the new Viking Seamaster and it is based on the 820. Viking where very helpful and have built a great craft. As I wanted a shaft drive and not loose the berth under the cockpit they fitted a hydraulic drive to save space. Only took delivery this week so have not given it a good try yet. Will let you know how it goes.
