Galati Yacht Sales Anna Maria is excited to announce the sale of Ragin Cajun”, a 2013 55 Viking Yacht Convertible. This 55 Viking, newly named SARCO, closed on June 28th with the help of Galati Brokers Team Hirshberg, representing the seller and Galati Broker Randy Bright, representing the buyer. This meticulous vessel was only on the market for a short period of time, selling in under 8 weeks. The Galati team extends congratulations to both the seller and buyer of this beautiful Viking Yacht.
“Ragin Cajun” is unique and specially equipped with a SeaKeeper, custom Kingston Gray Paint, Bad Company Edition Tower (By Palm Beach Towers), to name only a few of her special features. Being fully tournament rigged and always maintained to the highest standards, she didn’t disappoint. A proven tournament fished boat, with the luxury, seakeeping, and quality Sport Fishing Yacht you come to expect from a Viking Yacht. It’s no wonder why she sold so fast! Also, the seasoned captain of this 2013 55 Viking Convertible “Ragin Cajun” kept extensive detailed logs of every outing on the boat and detailed service logs and records. She had 850 HRS and a new SeaKeeper installed by an authorized SeaKeeper Dealer/Installer.
