This 57' Viking is a nice looking boat which has benefitted from a complete paint job in late 2009 to the current Viking white. Having been a northern boat for much of her life, she has very reasonable original hours on her Detroit Diesels and the interior shows minimal wear. A spacious 3 stateroom and 3 head layout, with satin finished teak cabinetry. The Galley and Dinette on the same level is comfortable and practical. Her large flybridge with hardtop and EZ2CY enclosure are accommodating. Freshly bottom painted in September '13. Seller has a smaller boat in mind and is ready for a change. Boat is easily shown in Delray Beach, FL.

- Hull and Deckhouse
- This boat has had a complete paintjob which was done in late 2009 at the Palm Beach Yacht Center. It was painted the newer Viking white and the original deckhouse striping was removed giving this boat a fresher appearance. There is a navy blue boot stripe. The deckhouse windows are dark tinted and the flybridge windscreen was removed to the benefit of the vision from the helm. There is no exterior teak with exception of the helm chairs and fighting chair. Non-skid is in good condition throughout. White poly rubrail with a polished stainless steel strike plate is an attractive accent. Anti-fouling paint was refreshed in September 2013.

- FREE SPIRIT has had only 2 owners since new and has been well cared for. Having spent most of her life as Northern boat, it has low original hours and shows light usage especially the interior. A full exterior paint job in late 2009 gives the boat a fresh appearance. Seller is interesting in down-sizing and will be receptive to offers.
