1978 Viking 43 Double Cabin

Midland, Ontario

C$75,000

Turn key and ready to go!

The popular Viking double cabin Motor Yacht layout features the highly sought-after queen-size bed in aft with a private shower and captain's headquarters. The large V-berth has been recently painted, as well as new upholstery, comfortably sleeping two adults. The V-berth also has its own head with a stand-up shower. Lots of storage for overnight or weeks on anchor.

The dual helm layout is great for adding to the large galley and saloon area, which has a newly upgraded custom leather sectional, new galley seating, and window coverings. This is a spacious yacht for entertaining or getting away from the marina with family for prolonged periods.

Mechanically, this yacht has twin Crusaders 454’s. Both engines run flawlessly and are backed by smooth velvet transmission. Four-blade props easily push this beautiful vessel at cruising speeds of 24 mph. With the newly added Raymarine Ev-200 autopilot, she runs nicely at 14mph with autopilot on while taking in all the sites of the Great Lakes. The boat has only seen FRESHWATER for the past 40 years, and it shows.

The exterior boasts a new (2022) complete fly enclosure, as well as all-new fly seating and a captain’s chair. The fly is wired for great sound with its pioneer Bluetooth 4 speaker system.
