With much experience from prior builds, "Team Galati" put together some incredible ideas and specs to build this demo. The 55' was a newly introduced model when much thought went into what was necessary to build an incredible fishing machine. The team wanted this 55' to be a fast, extensively equipped great looking demo. She was one of the first hulls to be built with “stars and stripes” blue paint and that set her apart from other Vikings on the water at first sight.
TEAM GALATI was built for extensive travel and serious fishing. She has MAN 1800s so you'll enjoy the ride getting where you're going at 39 knots (cruise) and 43 knots (top end). She has 3 spacious and elegant staterooms, 2 heads and a state-of-the-art Atlantic Marine Electronics package.
For fishing, other great equipment on board includes 2 generators (one 21 KW and one 13.5 KW), a flush mounted bow well, 4-rod rocket launchers, teaser reels, EXTRA storage for 30 rods and reels, a full custom live well system with 8 tuna tubes in transom box, and an in-deck live well flush mounted under the fighting chair.
At the dock she's still awesome. At night you will enjoy the underwater Ocean LED lighting, which creates a dramatic show of patterns and colors that illuminate the bottom and hull sides, as well as the recessed tri-color lighting that enhances the tower, bridge and cockpit.
TEAM GALATI was delivered in August of 2013. She started her debut fishing tournaments in the Northeast and then headed to Cabo. From August last year to this September, TEAM GALATI has caught 371 billfish! This total includes 304 striped marlin, 47 white marlin, 9 blue marlin, and 11 sailfish. TEAM GALATI is still in Cabo where she is getting ready to fish the Bisbee.
