THE ONLY FEDERALLY INSPECTED COMMERCIAL VIKING 55' CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET.
What does this mean? The boat was built from the factory to a higher specification standard in order to comply with USCG regulations. Several safety, and structural items such as motor mounts, bilge pumps, and fire suppressant systems are accounted for in this process, and are listed within.
If you will be using your yacht privately, these safety features will be appreciated. If you choose to use your yacht commercially, not only is this regulation mandatory, it would allow you to entertain more than six paying guests aboard your boat at once, and allow you to sell your catch commercially.
This is a rare and valuable feature. If you were to take a standard Viking 55', and bring it into compliance, it would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Having a federally inspected yacht of this size will minimize your depreciation, and assist you in retaining a higher resale value.
Everything on this boat has been updated. The boat was just relaunched after an extensive refit. A full list of her upgrades and features to come.
