Brokers Comments

A great example of one of the most popular small convertibles ever built. Powered by the work horse Caterpillar 3208 T motors with low original hours. Currently enjoyed by her third owner she has full maintenance logs and has always lived locally here in Saint Petersburg. 

This is the first year production of this second generation 35 Viking Convertible. There are many improvements to the original model and "Sea King" is worthy of your consideration.

If your desire is to own a high quality, well kept, classic convertible, with a great set of engines, a brand new epoxy bottom job, and a proven ownership history, for very little money, then this is a must see boat.
