A true find! Major Price Reduction! Thanks for viewing what we feel is the absolute best 35' Viking on the planet! "Rock Solid" is a fine example of an older quality built Viking that has been well maintained, updated, and improved by a caring owner. While most sportfish boats in this catagory are outdated looking, tired and fished hard, this one is just the opposite!
Legendary Viking 35 Hull, built like a tank and in outstanding shape. If you ever dreamed of owning a Viking, this may be your best chance at a price that is affordable for such a high quality boat with Cat Diesel engines.
Looking for great fuel economy? Her Cat 3208 Naturals are the perfect combination of power and economy. She will cruise between 19-20 knots, and burn less fuel than any turbo diesel out there. This is the same engine that has proven itself in trucks that go over 1 million miles before an overhaul. The engine hour meters register 775, but we can't confirm except to say that the hours are very low for these type of engines. Recently "Rock Solid" had her engines removed, oil pans replaced, new risers, gaskets, pumps, new belts, new exhaust, all new motor mounts, new cutless bearings, 4 new trans cooler lines, new battery charger, 1 new starter, 2 new fuel lines, new head gasket, and more serviced and or replaced. Her fuel tank was also removed, clean, polished and tested. There are 2 new 8D batteries, new wiring, recent Air Conditioning service, newer hot water heater and Westerbeke Generator. As far as we know, everything in this boat works great except for possibly the anchor windlass which will be serviced this winter.
The interior of this boat has had an extensive update. The beautiful wood teak wood trim was restored, and her walls received new wall treatment. There is a brand new headliner, lighting, valence, and new interior carpet. Her galley was remodeled to reflect a more updated and newer look. Cabin is very spacious and affords the comfort of over nighting. There is a spacious forward berth, a pull out sleeper couch, air conditioning/heat and spacious galley. Her head is also large and boasts a fully enclosed shower.
Her decks are "Rock Solid" and her windows do not leak! The bridge has a full enclosure that was installed in 2008 and is in nice condition. There is a newer GPS/Fish Finder Combo unit from Garmin (2010C Color). Radar, VHF, Sitex Fish Finder and more rounds out the electronics.
Vikings have always been "top of the line" and her ride is exceptional. She is built like a tank and can handle most sea conditions with ease. These boats have stood the test of time, and still look great with those graceful lines and perfectly sized bridge.
We are proud to offer this boat for the person who recognizes an opportunity to own a legend at an affordable price. There has been much more put into this boat than the ask price and we believe that if you know your boats, you will recognize a great value here! A must see in person! Smaller late model trades would be welcome! Thanks for viewing this listing, and please feel free to call with any questions. Cell phone is best! Thanks. Mike.
