1997 Viking 43 1997/2008 Vessel Overview

“BLUE DAWG” is a one-of-a-kind 1997/2008 43 VIKING EXPRESS, being one of only two 43’ VIKINGs built with 10 cylinder 820hp MANs, making her one of the fastest 43’s on the water. At 1900 RPM she runs an easy 30 knots. She was also owned by a member of the VIKING YACHTS family and spent 2007 and the winter of 2008 out of the water, in the VIKING factory, for a major refit. The refit included: a complete paint job on topside and hull, re-wiring of many systems, new generator, new pumps, all systems in Engine Room (other than the engines) were replaced, the interior got new Galley appliances, new teak and holly sole, new headliner, new soft goods, new wallpaper and much more. Her new Seakeeper SK6 has improved the 43 VIKINGs stable platform giving you and your guest's the ultimate ride while fishing and cruising. 1997/2008 VIKING 43’ EXPRESS “BLUE DAWG” is ready to go cruise the Bahamas or fish the canyons immediately.
