Here is a very nice example of the 50' Viking Yachts convertible that has benefited from thorough updating throughout the past few years.  Rigged for cruising, it's a rare find to see this level of detail in an updated boat.  Two double berth staterooms and factory original satin interior finish, polycarbonate flybridge enclosure plus a recently new bow thruster, bow rail, and underwater lights.  Exceptionally nice dock presence - looks like a late model boat.  Sincere seller has adjusted the asking price now for the 3rd time February 13, 2018.

Salon and Dinette

This boat is one of the later 50' Vikings of this body style era and was custom ordered when new, thus having some unique features of which most noticeable is the gloss satin finish of the Viking teak cabinetry and doors, plus the countertops throughout the salon and parts of the staterooms have Corian tops.

The soft goods in the salon have all been refreshed to high quality standards.  The main settee was redesigned to form a U-shape arrangement with a cushioned ottoman in the center which has a top that can be inverted to a cocktail table.  The off-white leatherette upholstery is matching to the dinette seating, forward to the starboard side, with a triangular teak dinette table (hi-gloss coated) that is matched with the cabinets. The under-counter refrigeration galley feature is found only in the later model 50' Vikings and the open feeling of the area is inviting. The large flat panel television, visible from anywhere in the salon, is on the forward starboard cabinet above the dinette. The carpeting is a plush textured pile of neutral shade and blends well with the teak & holly galley sole. The Corian topped cabinetry along the starboard side houses the audio components, main electrical panel, and bar storage area (also a small ICOM vhf radio here).  There is also considerable storage beneath the seating areas which have spring lift hinges for easy access.  The  tinted salon windows have Hunter Douglas adjustable Silhouette duet blinds and are framed with custom covered expresso colored lambrequins with a gator-skin texture design.  There is a neutral earthtone canvas carpet runner from the entry door to the galley.  The sliding salon door is fiberglass with wood inside and has a keeper latch when open.  There are ceiling valances with low voltage lighting behind them.  The salon overhead lights have been changed to LED.  There is also an overhead safety grab rail painted to blend into the headliner color.

The Dinette settee is L-shaped and covered in the matching off-white leatherette with hinged storage access beneath.  A triangular high-gloss finished table with sturdy wood base sits in front.  There is a custom tabletop cover that matches the lambrequins & seating.

    The upper transom corners have stainless line hawsers and the scupper drains have FRP covers to prevent cockpit flooding when in reverse.
