From The Powerboat Guide: Introduced in 1987 as the Gulfstar 55 Motor Yacht, this spacious
motor yacht was considered a breakthrough design in the late
1980s for her sophisticated engineering and high-tech construction.
Gulfstar was a technology-driven company when Viking acquired it
in late 1987, and the 55 was among their most advanced designs.
Built on a fully cored hull with moderate transom deadrise, the
55 is noted for her good performance, excellent interior space
utilization and woodwork, and—unfortunately—a somewhat
noisy master stateroom while underway. Her standard four stateroom
layout (three with double berths) has the main salon/
dining area separated from the galley and pilothouse. Notable
features include a salon staircase leading up to the flybridge (a big
improvement over the normal wheelhouse ladder) and a separate
utility room with washer/dryer and workbench. Originally designed
with walkaround side decks, the full-width salon layout became
standard in 1989. Standard 735hp 8V92 diesels
cruise the Gulfstar/Viking 55 at 19–20 knots (20+ top). A total of
40 were built.
This boat is priced low to reflect some items that need repair.
- One engine has one turbo that needs rebuild or replacement. Estimate is $1,500 (according to the owner).
- The aft air conditioning needs work as it pops the breaker when activated.
- Port side exhaust tube at the stern needs fiberglass work.
