|Opilio, a 1982 44 Viking Motor yacht in pristine condition, is on the hunt for a new owner. She is currently in the water at Cape Ann Marina in Gloucester, Mass. She is the perfect boat for a Grand Looper, East Coast cruiser, Live-Aboard or just someone who enjoys the feel of a well-maintained strong seaworthy vessel. She has been prepped for the summer and is ready to go. All the canvas for the flybridge and aft deck is brand-new, the bottom paint is in excellent condition, she comes with 2 recent surveys (one done in April, 2017) and she is newly waxed top to bottom. This is just one of those boats that when you get on you know she has been well taken care of all her life and all records and system guides are available.
The interior of the boat is in impeccable condition and unlike many on the market she is not dated. The wood work is in like-new condition with updated seating and carpeting. The galley is open and user friendly adjacent to the dinette. The salon is inviting and the same is true for the upper aft deck. The full beam master stateroom is a beautiful retreat with lots of drawers and closets as well as a private head and shower. The bow stateroom shared a head with shower with the main salon and features a full-size bed with plenty of storage. In fact, this boat has tons of storage, many hidden gems. At the helm, you have full command of the boat with (2) helm seats and guest seating beside and in front of you making for a fun trip on the water.
Hull Design and Construction: Viking Yachts are well known for their outstanding offshore performance. The foundation for the 44 model is her variable dead rise, modified V-Hull configuration which features a deep fore-foot at the bow and 15.5 degrees of dead rise at the transom. Aggressive reverse chines do a remarkable job of keeping spray off the boat. There is a low profile directional keel for improved tracking. The boat is constructed of modified polyester resin for superior blister protection, E-glass woven and knitted fiberglass cloth and numerous coring materials including end-grain balsa, synthetic foam and marine grade plywood. The hull has a solid fiberglass bottom, below the waterline, for rugged service and balsa cored hull sides for exceptional strength and lighter weight. The main stringer system is of fiberglass encapsulating a marine grade plywood core for outstanding shock absorption and rigidity, while the engine beds are a Viking proprietary steel I-beam arrangement, which creates the most rigid foundation possible for the engines. The deck structure is of similar cored construction as the hull with balsa used to core the deck surfaces. Vikings reputation for quality construction is renowned.
Summary: She is ready for her next home, she is a boat that needs to be used and our next year will not provide the time for that. She is currently at Cape Ann Marina in Gloucester. We have tons more photos and the 2 surveys.
