General Details

One of the most Custom Vikings Available!!

Viking Motor Yachts have always been considered a well built and sea kindly motor yacht.  To begin with, the 43 has a distinctive profile.  The sheer line profile is of the unmistakable “sportfish” with a high reverse sheer forward, dropping down to a straight and nearly even line aft in the region where the sportfish cockpit would be in the conventional sportfishing design.  Above the sheer; however, the profile shows little if any of its sportfishing influence.  The deck house not overly high on itself is set towards amidships on top of a fairly high and very extensive trunk.  The aft cabin is well crowned and extends over the full beam of the yacht.     The 43s were been built with a full teak interior and all fiberglass construction.  The 43 Double Cabin qualified as a commodious cruising yacht be almost any standard.  Large interior volume allows a much larger feel.  


And spaciousness is indeed the key word.  The companionway leads from the aft deck to a very large salon, measuring about 9 ½ x 11 ½ feet.  Cabinet space abounds, on both the port and starboard side.  The main salon is equipped with a couch along the port side, facing forward and a coffee table.  There is a flat screen TV for your viewing pleasure.  Access to the aft cabin is via a passage to starboard of the companionway, down three steps. There is a door that separates the main salon from the aft cabin.   If the salon is considered spacious, the aft cabin in enormous, measuring 11 ½ feet and extends fully across the full beam of the yacht.   The cabin offers a centerline queen size berth.   A full size head compartment with separate shower stall occupies the forward port corner of the stateroom.  With shelves to port and starboard, combined with a large locker to starboard and a hanging locker under the companionway, plus storage under the berth-storage capacity is quite large. Forward of the salon, neatly railed off and dropped three steps is a most convenient expanded galley and office space to port and galley area to starboard.  The galley is “U” shaped, fully equipped, and fitted with convenient stowage for associated galley gear.  The three-hatch foredeck arrangement provides separate opening hatches for the extended galley, office space and galley areas allowing excellent natural ventilation and light.  Going forward again, a short passageway provides access to the forward stateroom.  The forward “V” berth arrangement is well laid out giving the cabin a much larger feel.  A full head occupies the port side between the forward bulkhead of the office space and the port V-berth.  Access into the head can be made from the passageway (day head use) or from the cabin.   A large vanity and cabinet completes the starboard side of the forward cabin while yet another locker opens off the starboard side of the passageway heading back to the galley.  Topside the deck arrangement is as pleasing as the interior.  The aft deck is high and wide and is enclosed with isinglass panels. Easy and complete 360 degree maneuverability around the yacht by way of wide side decks.  Steps onto the fly bridge which has a complete enclosure with aluminum supported soft canvas top and isinglass with zippered panels, a centered console, and pedestal mounted helm and mate seats.  Forward of the helm is a settee for seating guests.
