Broker Comments: If you are looking for a high quality yacht for extended cruising or to liveaboard, this is truly worth a look.  She shows much newer than her age and is one that you can hop aboard and go cruising, no refitting or yard time needed.  The layout is incredibly spacious and comfortable with all the amenities of a condo, the aft deck area offers incredible water views on 3 sides and is the most popular lounge spot, enabling you to relax in full air conditioning.


Aft Deck


With its unique split-level accessibility, the huge aft deck is just a few steps from both the flybridge and the salon. This spacious living and entertaining area offers excellent visibility and plenty of fresh air with large tinted sliding glass side windows.

Additionally, this fully air conditioned space features a full furniture set including sofa, love seat, end table, 2 chairs, coffee table and dinette table.

Overlooking the stern is an EZ2CY enclosure that has mesh screens to keep out the sun and heat when desired. 

Also on the aft deck is a full wet bar with icemaker, sink, 40" flatscreen TV and a ton of storage space for drinks.



For the ultimate onboard living and entertaining versatility, the salon layout places the galley and dinette on the same level while making good use of the generous 17'5" beam. Included are a galley with all the modern amenities, a nearby dinette and a large L-shaped sofa. A large T.V. located above the dinette hides away behind rich cabinetry. Expansive tinted windows make for an open feeling and great visibility.

Reflecting Viking's attention to detail are features such as lounge seats with hinges for easy access to storage. Electrical panels are at eye level for convenient operation and the entertainment center is wired to individually controlled speakers throughout the yacht with a Crestron remote control linking it all together. The exquisite woodwork is accented by designer fabrics.



This GALLEY will please the most discerning eye. It's equipped with a full size, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with icemaker, microwave-convection oven, dishwasher, recessed cooktop, trash compactor, instant hot water and cabinets full of storage space.

Additional Broker Comments

Yellow Rose is truly an incredible yacht and a pleasure to show and see.  Viking did an incredible job with this model, packing her full of amenities to make her really feel like your home away from home.

In addition to the model itself being the perfect long term cruiser, Yellow Rose has received the best of care and consistent updates throughout her life and it shows.  The pictures you see really depict the condition of the boat without anything to hide or cover up.  Both cosmetically and mechanically she is top shelf.  The fact that she was a seasonally used Northeast boat until 2014 really helped slow the aging process.

If you or your client is considering a yacht in this range, I would highly recommend you take the time to look at Yellow Rose.
