2005 Viking 56 Convertible offered by Galati Yacht Sales in Destin. Diane Kay, a former Galati Demo build, spent the bulk of her life under a covered slip and has been professionally captain-maintained from day one. She just also happens to have one of the most stunning interiors of her time. Granite, fabric and teak upgrades and accents are eminent throughout. The beauty of the 56 Viking, which makes it a true tournament contender, is that it has the speed, ride, and range of many of its modern-day siblings for a fraction of the price. With upgraded MAN CRM 1550’s the 56 will comfortably cruise at 32 plus knots and top out close to 40. The upgraded fuel capacity brings the total to 1720 gallons, range is not an issue. Diane Kay is an excellent example of a true tournament rigged 56 Viking with, the preferred VIP forward stateroom Crossover layout. There are many key features to Diane Kay but some of the more notable are, extra fuel capacity, 3rd sub-zero unit in the galley island, custom Viking Gulf Coast style XL fish box, 1200 GPD Sea Recovery watermaker, Eskimo ice chipper, 3000 GPH live well pump and separate Pentair 3hp powder-coated Tuna Tube supply pump, Release Marine Helm and fighting chair upgrade including a polished stainless pedestal and custom teak cockpit deck.
