Viking 47 Convertible

The “In XS” our sport fishing charter boat.

The Viking 47 Convertible is where luxury, speed and comfort meet tournament fishing capability. The “In XS” was designed and built to fish hard and be very comfortable doing it. Every day we leave the dock on our fishing charters we are tournament capable and ready. 

She is a 1995 Viking 47 Convertible sport fishing boat. This hull is well known for its speed and ability to raise fish. This hull from Viking was widely used in tournament marlin fishing throughout all the major fishing destinations in the past 20 years.  

She has gone through many upgrades and refits that are bringing her back to “good as new”. She is the fastest over 40ft Sportfishing full time charter boat in Key West with a 24kt cruising speed. 

Enjoy the dual air conditioned salon with all the comforts of home on board our 47Ft Viking.

The main room has full wrap around leather couch seating and dinette table with a full kitchen that includes microwave, garbage disposal, refrigerator and freezer. Stand alone ice maker 

There are 2 bathrooms. One in the guest quarters and the other in the master bedroom. Both are fully enclosed and also have full on stand up showers. 

Go fishing without leaving your house..  

Powering our Viking 47 convertible are two very powerful twin turbo mechanical 680hp MAN Deisel engines. Meticulously maintained. They push the “In XS” to a cruising speed of 24kts and a wide open speed of 33kts or 38 MPH. 

October 2020 these engines had a complete major over haul. Balanced and blue printed turbos and all new exhaust from the manifolds back on both engines done by the MAN experts at Scott Marine Power an engine shop in Ft Lauderdale FL. 

No Smoke, no vibrations no issues. Just smooth operation.

Our DAIWA Saltist Reels are on our light spinning rods that  round out the compliment for reef fishing for yellowtail snappers, bailing dolphin and other fun fish.  

The outriggers are the best in the industry made by RUPP outriggers. Designed to troll right and pull teasers. 

The fighting chair is a Murray Brothers Popanette. Brand new and custom made for the “In XS” in 2020.
