1978 Viking 43
- Stock #104247 -
Beautiful and Spacious! Diesel Powered!
The PowerBoat Guide had this to say:
Viking's first fiberglass motor yacht design, the 43 Double Cabin is essentially a Viking 40 Convertible with a full-width aft cabin. The floor-plan of both boats is the same from the salon forward, and the Double Cabin shares the same proven modified-V hull as her convertible sister-ship.
The two-stateroom, galley-down interior of the 43 Double Cabin was originally configured with twin berths in the aft cabin.
The dinette converts into a double berth, and both heads have separate stall showers. The aft stateroom is quite large and includes a pair of hanging lockers.
Topside, the after-deck is a fine lounging area and only a couple of steps down from the bridge with its aft helm and seating for six.
A very popular boat, over 250 Viking 43 Double Cabins were sold during her production run.
This two cabin model provides very comfortable accommodations for the owner and guests and features a galley and dinette down layout that is open to the salon.
Boarding this yacht can be accomplished on either the port or starboard side just forward of the sundeck or onto the swim platform and up a ladder on to the sundeck. Once on the large sundeck an entrance to the salon is just off center forward and molded steps up to the flybridge are to starboard. The large foredeck can be accessed by walkways on either side of the boat. Once in the salon, the master cabin companionway is to starboard aft and the lower helm is starboard forward in the salon. Forward of the salon and down, the L-shaped dinette is to port and U-shaped galley is starboard. Forward of the galley is the boats laundry facilities with the guest head to port. The guest cabin is all the way forward in the bow.
This yacht can sleep eight comfortably and features a full beam master cabin with centered queen berth aft and a comfortable second cabin forward in the bow. Additionally, the dinette converts to a double berth and the sleeper sofa in the salon pulls out to a double berth as well. The master cabin features an ensuite head and a second guest head is forward.
The large salon on this yacht is at the bottom of the companionway from the sundeck. The salon is primarily on the port side of the boat with the lower helm and companionway to the master cabin to starboard.
The large L-shaped dinette is forward and down to port from the salon and can comfortably seat four or sleep two once converted. The dinette table can be pulled out for meals or when used as a berth can be slide completely into the bulkhead for storage. There is storage under the dinette, behind the port side cushion and above in the bulkhead. A single portlight and overhead hatch provide natural light and ventilation to the space.
The forward guest cabin features a traditional V-berth configuration with filler. Each side of the berth has under bunk storage drawers and a large hanging locker with additional drawers is aft of the starboard bunk. Each bunk features a reading light and a large shelf and access to the chain locker is forward. A portlight on each side with curtains and an overhead hatch with cover provide natural light and fresh airflow to the space.
The full beam master aft cabin is spacious and features a full, centered queen berth with nightstands and lamps on either side. Storage space includes a large hanging locker upon entering the space, storage cabinets and drawers along both port and starboard bulkhead, drawers in the nightstands and another large hanging locker at the foot of the bed. Two large rectangular portlights with curtains are on either side of the cabin and an additional portlight/escape hatch with curtain is above the headboard.
From the sundeck up a set of molded steps you arrive on the flybridge. The helm is aft and a large padded bench seat with storage is forward of the helm and another padded bench seat with padding is along the starboard side of the flybridge. Two captains chairs are behind the helm. The helm is fully enclosed with canvas and Isinglass which are in great condition.
She is powered by twin Detroit Diesels.
