Sports Fishing Boats 2008 Viking Enclosed Flybridge & Skybridge

Off Market since Aug 30th 2018

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

Although this Viking 68 has never fished, in 2014 new Rupp outriggers and Bluewater fighting chair were added to make LOST TEXAN ready for a fisherman! She features a highly functional (and factory optional) Skybridge with a custom hardtop that was designed and installed in 2014. The hardtop was specially designed to flow with the streamlined lines of this boat. Her gelcoat is exceptional and her owner had Viking South paint her hull (originally blue), to match the superstructure in 2014. The interior of the boat also seems as fresh as the exterior. The salon couches are very unique, as the backs and bottom cushions are one unit and come up together giving much more access to the storage areas under the seating. The master suite is a double, split level room and creates a grand owners cabin, not common on sportfish. The 12 cylinder C32As (with only 700 original hours) provide a comfortable 30 knot cruise with a 36-37 knot top speed. Also, CAT diesels allow for substantially more space in the engine room. These features, and more, combine to make the Lost Texan a very special yacht.
