What to Buy?

Hello there, 

I am interested in purchasing a Viking/V-King this fall or next spring and I would like to know if there are any model years I should specifically avoid.  I would also like to know if there are specific things I should look for (related to boat's structure) on any Vikings I might potentially buy.  Do you have any advice? 

Thanks in advance, 




Just about any V-king is good just make sure the floor and transom are not soft or rotten. A good well kept boat should be a good buy but stay away from ones that have been exposed to the elements. The YT hull models are not my favorites as a good v-bottom always runs better.  

                                              Hope this helps,
