47' Viking Convertible Sport Fishing Cruiser 1999

With a $300k refit in 2017, this Viking 47 Convertible Sport Fishing Cruiser is a great value offering. Engines received major overhauls by Performance Diesel in Houston TX in August 2017. New Onan generator and engine room cleaned and readied for new motors. Her house was recently painted, forward deck and cockpit painted. Vessel has new carpet, new Eisenglass on bridge, and a new windshield on the bridge. It is quite rare to find a 47 C Viking with the optional 800 HP MAN motors with low hours and a vessel as clean as "Reel Madness". A recent survey gave her an above average condition rating!

The Viking 47 rides on a revised hull design with a deepened forefoot for head-sea handling and additional flare at the bow to reduce spray.

The master stateroom is huge and both heads have separate stall showers. Viking interiors have always been an elegant blend of grain matched teak cabinets and designer fabrics. Outside, the tournament level cockpit comes with an in deck fish box plus a molded tackle center, transom door, and direct access to the spacious, well engineered engine room.
