1999 Viking 47 Convertible Description

This 1999 VIKING YACHTS 47' CONVERTIBLE, "BLUE SKY," represents a tremendous value for fishermen and families looking to get as much boat for their money as possible.

In 1994, when the VIKING YACHTS 47' CONVERTIBLE was introduced, she set a new benchmark for convertible sportfishers. Her combination of fishability, speed, efficiency, layout and quality were best in class. The 47 and subsequent models introduced by VIKING YACHTS began a revolution and eventual take over of the sportfish market. To this day the 47 model holds up remarkably well. The 1999 model BLUE SKY has been part of a loving family for the last 7 years. She has been family fished and cruised throughout south Florida and the Bahamas. During that time, she has been well cared for with meticulous maintenance records available for inspection. The time has come for another family or value-oriented fisherman to take over the helm of BLUE SKY. This 1999 VIKING YACHTS 47' CONVERTIBLE, "BLUE SKY,"is now being proudly offered for sale. Below please find a brief summary of just some of her highlights followed by a descriptive walk though of her layout and features

1999 Viking 47 Convertible Vessel Overview



Standing in the cockpit of BLUE SKY you can really feel her 15' 6" beam and appreciate the 132 square foot versatile space. The center piece of the cockpit is the custom Bluewater marine fighting chair. This could be easily changed to a stand-up rocket launcher or cocktail table if a future owner desired to do so. Some of her additional noteworthy cockpit features include:

  • Athwartship in deck fish box with ESKIMO ICE machine
  • Transom lift gate and tuna door

Facing forward in the cockpit the salon door is just off center to stbd. Upon entering you are greeted by a nice Amtico faux teak sole welcome pad. The rest of the salon has a textured beige carpet which is in great shape. The salon has a large open feel. There is good lighting above and tons of natural light from the four large windows. Hunter Douglas blinds can soften the light and give you privacy when desired. The wood work is a high gloss teak finish in keeping with everything you have come to expect from Viking Yachts. The décor and soft goods are nautical in theme with a mostly beige and navy blue color scheme. To port you have a large L shaped beige ultra leather sofa with storage beneath. There is a high gloss small molded in teak end table forward with a lamp on top and storage drawers beneath. Stbd side aft you have high gloss teak cabinetry that houses your AC DC electrical panels and a cabinet for Audio visual components.

The main deck layout is fantastic. Gone are the days of chopped up layouts, hard full bulkheads and sunken dark galleys detached from the salon. Blue Sky has a galley up arrangement portside just forward of the salon sofa. The bulkhead separating the two areas is waist height and mirrored for a larger deeper feel. Across from the galley to starboard is a navy blue ultra-leather upholstered dinette with high gloss teak table. The seating has great storage beneath. The fwd bulkhead starboard side above the dinette has a cabinet that houses a flat screen TV. The galley features everything a shipboard gourmet would require:

  • Large peninsula style galley
  • Speckled beige Corian counter tops with sea ledge on aft side
  • Deep sink
  • Tremendous storage
  • Full size Kenmore refrigerator and freezer with mirrored face
  • Updated Sharp microwave convection oven
  • 2 burner electric cook top with Corian counter insert
  • Amtico teak pattern vinyl flooring


The centerline walkway between the galley and dinette will lead us down three stairs to the lower accommodations. Immediately to port we find a set of double doors that house the over under Kenmore washer dryer.

Just across the companionway to starboard is the guest stateroom. The soft goods and décor of the guest stateroom are nautical in theme and in keeping with the blue and beige color scheme seen throughout the rest of BLUE SKY. Additional features of the guest stateroom include:

  • Bunk bed arrangement
  • Large cedar lined closet
  • Air conditioning

In stateroom access to a full guest head. The full guest head has a Vacu Flush marine toilet, tile floor, stand up shower, mirrored medicine cabinet, sink with storage below and an overhead hatch/sky light.

If we head back out into the companionway and continue forward, to starboard there is a day head access door to the guest head.

At the end of the companionway all the way forward we come to the master stateroom. The master stateroom arrangement has an Island queen berth, good space, natural light, excellent storage and an en suite head. Master stateroom highlights include:

  • High gloss teak wood work
  • Island queen berth with storage beneath
  • Raised teak cabinetry for storage port and stbd
  • Air conditioning with updated air handler
  • Extra-large cedar lined closet
  • Overhead hatch/skylight

All of this combined makes HMY the best brokerage to help you find the best used Viking or new Viking Yacht on the market while receiving an exceptional client experience.

Viking has become a global leader in the luxury sportfish and motor yacht industry. Founded in the early 1960’s by Bob and Bill Healey, Viking built its vessels much like Carolina builders, assembling the boats on frames at intervals throughout the manufacturing facility. By 1972 they were already working on the first all-fiberglass model, the Viking 33C, and building their way into history as one of the finest yachting brands in the world. Viking quickly grew into a major U.S.-based yacht builder and leader in its industry in less than a decade. In the 80’s Viking acquired Gulfstar Yachts in Florida, whose designs were considered by many to be some of the best in the industry, and incorporated some new innovations furthering their place in the industry. Re-investing with their own money in the early ’90s, the brand has been on top of the world ever since. From a 38-foot sportfishing boat to 93-foot motor yachts with semi-custom fiberglass, advanced flybridges, tuna towers, and impressive outriggers, Viking yachts carry a tradition of excellence, innovative technology, and family history. Most Viking Yachts models are manufactured in house to ensure maximum attention to detail and impeccable quality control in every sport yacht, open bridge convertible, enclosed bridge convertible, billfish, and the open series yacht that is produced.
