Available for SaleSUMMERTIME BLUES V48' 1987 Viking 

The SUMMERTIME BLUES V is a 1987 model VIKING 48 Convertible as produced by VIKING YACHTS of New Gretna, NJ. She's powered by (2) DETROIT 8V92 TI's that are rated at 735 HP each. This nice VIKING 48 Convertible has the preferred "A" layout with the Guest Stateroom and second Head & the "Galley Down" setup with the Dinette opposite.

The present Owner purchased the SUMMERTIME BLUES V some (15) years ago. Since then, she's been kept locally and lightly-used over the ensuing years. As the Owner's boating plans have changed, this VIKING 48 SF is aggressively offered for brokerage sale. Realistically-priced, viewings and offers are certainly being encouraged as the Owner is "negotiable" and would like to sell her this Fall to a knowledgeable Buyer!.

For more information regarding the SUMMERTIME BLUES V, you can contact her Listing Broker, Randy Altemus of Brewer Yacht Sales (Stamford, CT) at cell 203 512 0847 or by email at "raltemus(at)".
