Custom Helm Pod!

"Fishwater" is an excellent example of the popular Viking 47' Convertible. She has been a well-known serious fishing contender in Virginia Beach for her entire life.  She has been professionally maintained by Bluewater Yacht Sales (we are the dealer and sold her new), ACE Marine (MAN dealer with an office at our yard), and has always had a professional crew to keep her in top condition.  She is powered with the MAN 800hp engines, and has a full tower which was added in 2003. Also in 2003, a custom helm pod and upgraded electronics package were added, as well as all new soft goods and countertops.  The boat was completely painted from the waterline up in 2007, and the hullsides are an "ice blue".  This boat is a real head-turner wherever she goes.  The love and care that she has received is immediately evident from dockside as well as aboard.  This is one of those special boats that has always been kept "right". The list of upgrades (see full specs) is extensive!  No expense has been spared. She is beautiful to the eye, performs like no other 47' production boat, and has proven herself a fish-raiser.  She must be seen by anyone looking for a quality sportfishing machine which lacks for nothing in the lower $300K range.

**The boat is currently at the yard where she has just received new BOTTOM PAINT and a new 3-SIDED ENCLOSURE!!!  See photos....MAJOR PRICE REDUCTION FOR BOAT SHOW SEASON!!!  SERIOUS SELLER!!!

Vessel Walkthrough

"Fishwater" has the popular two-stateroom, two-head layout with galley up.  The salon and galley are quite large and spacious, and all soft goods and carpeting are fresh and in very good condition.  The galley is forward to port, opposite a beautiful teak dinette (custom sailfish inlay) and updated entertainment center with a Sony 46" flat-screen TV, KVH satellite TV system with two receivers, and a Sony stereo system.  Aft to port is a large and comfortable L-shaped settee with storage beneath.  Three steps down from the salon is the washer/dryer to port, and the guest stateroom is to starboard.  The guest stateroom features wide over and under berths, large cedar-lined closet, drawer storage, and a private entrance into the day head.  The day/guest head offers a full stall shower, vanity with storage, sink, and fresh-water Vacu-Flush head.  The master stateroom is forward and features a centerline queen berth, cedar-lined hanging locker, drawer storage, custom rod storage, overhead hatch, JVC 13" TV with DVD player, and private ensuite head.  The master head includes a large stall shower, vanity with storage, and fresh-water Vacu-Flush head system.  All of the berths include a custom upgraded orthopedic mattress as well!
