1995 Viking 43' Express

League City, Texas

$149,000

A serious fishing machine with tremendous eye appeal. The Viking 43 Open was the produced from 1994 to 2002. One of Viking's most popular models and was one the best-selling express fisherman in her class. She has an excellent deck layout - the helm is centered on the raised bridge deck and the steps leading down to the cockpit are offset to starboard. This permits a full set of in-line tackle centers and a center-line access door to the engine room. A fish box is built into the cockpit sole and there is a transom door, as well as a transom live-well. The single stateroom is cabin has wide open salon with a big u-shaped settee (converts to sleep 2) and a roomy galley.

In 2018 "Tres Ninos" the owner had the helm deck seating professionally removed and in its place, there was a custom fish box built in. It is cooled with a saltwater slurry system. At the same time the generator was replaced with a new commercial Kubota 15kw generator.

 

 

 

 

 

 

She is a muscular fishing boat with tremendous eye appealand a good performer with 6V-92TA's. the 550hp engines have proven to be reliable, and a good power selection. This boat sports a custom look with no pulpit, and a custom helm with provisions for the latest electronics. Her light use and meeticulous maintenance make "Playing Hooky" an excellent choice.
