45' Viking Convertible


Starboard engine with 650 hours since major overhaul 


A Clean and well maintained example of a ruggedly built, offshore fishing machine without the wear and tear of fishing.  "LIQUIDITY" has been primarily used as a weekend cruiser of the San Francisco Bay and Delta but still holds onto it's ability to cover hundreds of miles offshore in quick order with all the right equipment to get you on the bite.  

Knowing the prior two owners I can attest this boat has received exemplary maintenance and care which is evident as soon as you walk up.  From the shine of LIQUIDITY's gel coat to its updated galley, new engine room hoses, "clean" Detroit engines, Garmin HD Radar and plotter, all in one washer/dryer, Three Air Conditioning units and the list goes on.

Whether your in the market for a fast cruising yacht or a serious fishing machine LIQUIDITY deserves your inspection.
