A True Fishing Machine
The 47’ Viking replaced the 45 Convertible in 1994.
The 47 Viking rides on a revised hull design with a deepened forefoot for improved head sea handling and an additional flare at the bow to reduce spray.
The two-stateroom layout on the 47 is the desirable plan because the salon, galley and dinette is on the same level.
The master stateroom is huge and both heads have separate stall showers.
Viking interiors have always been noted for their elegance of their grain matched teak cabinetry and designer fabrics.
Outside, the tournament level cockpit comes with an in-deck fish box as well as a molded tackle center, transom door and direct access to a well-engineered engine room with the upgraded 800HP Man. engines.
The large flybridge has a huge helm console and seating for a small crowd.
