    Default One beautiful well laid out boat

    A lot of you guys will disagree with me but this is one of the nicest rigs i've seen in a long time.

    It is a beautiful boad but I need twin screws on any boat that size. I live in SoCal (Newport Beach) and would love to have that style of boat around hear. It would def turn some heads. Rarely see that type around here.

    If I had 200k to invest in a boat, it'd be a lobsta boat. They have such beautiful lines.

    Because on a boat that big a kicker doesn't make sense and a single screw, IMO, could be single trouble if it were to go down.

    Nicest boat I have been on was a custom 47' Buddy Davis Sportfish my buddies and I chartered out of Key West in '93.
    It better be a nice bost for the $1.5 mil price tag though!! :O

    no where near the boat that northern bay is and its powered with a engine that parts are no longer available for. He's trying to cash in on the "wicked idiots" fame and find some sucker to overpay for that boat.

    Steve, what kind of fuel efficiency and speed do these boats get?

    depends on what they are powered with ?? I'd bet that boat i posted will go 16-18knots @ 12-15 gal hour. Thats a guess you'd have to talk with the owner(not the broker) what the real numbers are. My 29 H&H does 16knots@ 8 gal/hr and it will run in just about any weather at that and be a comfortable ride, no pounding. I'm easy on my boats my boat does 26 at WOT so i guess i could get a bit faster cruise if i ran it harder & put more fuel through it. I can run at 10knots and burn 5gal/hr. Boat will do 4 knots at idle! Big slow turning wheel does the trick.

    When I was in Seward last June this dingy was in the slip next to the boat we chartered. Not sure if it is still there or for sale but it sure was nice. It's how the other half live.

    I don't think you could get it to seattle for 6100 bucks if you can let me know. Are you going to take a look ??

    I just saw Strider out by Montague last weekend. That is a lot of boat for the money.

    I can just about guarantee that you'd never have to slow down for weather in this rig. I'd think it would be a nice halibut charter boat. Reduced to 189K

    That boat will have MTU diesels, most likely the 2000 V-16 models.
    Total HP just over 4K.

    Viking's are beautiful craft. Had the pleasure of working on a couple in the mid 50' range.

    I think I could live with it, but not the fuel bill. Not sure why they don't have more in the ad, but it is pretty impressive. As I recall from talking to the captain at the fuel docks once it has pretty similar numbers to my boat, with a 26kt cruise and a 35kt top end. I do believe that it burns a bit more fuel than me though.
