Features

In 1994, when the 47 Viking was introduced, she set a new benchmark for convertible sportfishers. Her combination of fishability, speed, efficiency, layout and quality were best in class.

SALON AND GALLEY MAIN DECK

Facing forward in the cockpit the salon door is just off center to stbd. Upon entering you are greeted by a nice Amtico faux teak sole welcome pad. The rest of the salon has a textured beige carpet which is in great shape. The salon has a large open feel. There is good lighting above and tons of natural light from the four large windows. Hunter Douglas blinds can soften the light and give you privacy when desired. The wood work is a high gloss teak finish in keeping with everything you have come to expect from Viking Yachts. The décor and soft goods are nautical in theme with a mostly beige and navy blue color scheme. To port you have a large L shaped beige ultra leather sofa with storage beneath. There is a high gloss small molded in teak end table forward with a lamp on top and storage drawers beneath. Stbd side aft you have high gloss teak cabinetry that houses your AC DC electrical panels and a cabinet for Audio visual components.

The main deck layout is fantastic. Gone are the days of chopped up layouts, hard full bulkheads and sunken dark galleys detached from the salon. Blue Sky has a galley up arrangement portside just forward of the salon sofa. The bulkhead separating the two areas is waist height and mirrored for a larger deeper feel. Across from the galley to starboard is a navy blue ultra-leather upholstered dinette with high gloss teak table. The seating has great storage beneath. The fwd bulkhead starboard side above the dinette has a cabinet that houses a flat screen TV. The galley features everything a shipboard gourmet would require:

  • Large peninsula style galley
  • Speckled beige Corian countertops with sea ledge on aft side
