Viking Sportfish Yacht Bandit for Sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 25.43 sportfish yacht Bandit has been listed for sale by Dave Meyer at HMY Yacht Sales.
Built in GRP by US yard Viking Yachts, she was delivered in 2010 as a Viking 82’ open flybridge model. An interior in neutral colours with black granite accents accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and port and starboard twins, all with entertainment centres, flat screen television sets and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, two crew are accommodated in an en suite twin cabin aboard this yacht for sale.
The saloon has comfortable seating on custom settees, a bar and liquor cabinet with three stools and an entertainment centre featuring a 50 inch flat screen television set. Forward, the galley offers a granite-topped banquette table for casual snacks.
The flybridge comes with a Stidd helm chair, an L-shaped sofa and a 37-inch pop up television. Aft, on the mezzanine deck, are no fewer than 10 rocket launchers. The aft cockpit is fully equipped for fishing, with a live bait well, freezers, an ice chipper, six rod holders and an offset fighting chair. The Skybridge has a Rupp hydro rigger system and eight rod holders welded to the rail.
In autumn 2019, her main engines were thoroughly inspected and a top end overhaul was completed as well as a 1000-hour service. Her top speed is 30 knots and her power comes from two 2400.0hp MTU 16V2000M93 diesel engines.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Bandit is asking $4,295,000.
