2001 Viking 47 Convertible

  • 47 ft
  • Convertible Boat
  • Essex, CT, US

Yacht price :



The Viking 47 rides on a proven hull design with a deep forefoot for impressive head sea handling and substantial flare at the bow to reduce spray. The two-stateroom layout of the Viking 47 is unusual in that the salon, galley, and dinette are on a single level, rare in a modern convertible under 50 feet. The master stateroom is large, and both head compartments have separate stall showers. Viking interiors have always been an elegant blend of grain-matched teak cabinetry and designer fabrics, and the 47's accommodations are plush indeed. The tournament-level cockpit comes with an in-deck fish box in addition to a molded tackle center, transom door, and direct access to the spacious, well-engineered engine room. The flybridge is large with a superb helm console and seating for six. Optional 800hp MAN diesels can cruise this Viking 47 near 30 knots with top speed over 30 knots. "WATERINGHOLE" has been thoughtfully maintained and relatively lightly used by her current owner. The engines had recent service and the entire boat was recently painted at the Viking facility in New Gretna. This boat provides a solid platform for the avid fisherman or cruiser seeking speed and exceptional seakeeping.
