The “Ditch Digger” is a 2005 48 Viking Convertible powered by the desired smooth and reliable 1100hp CR MANs. Complete MAN service was completed in July of 2022. She offers a spacious three stateroom/two head layout along with many other options, including a full tuna tower, Garmin Electronics, Ice Chipper, and Water Maker. The 48 Viking is much larger than her length would tell you due to a beam only 10 inches narrower than a 60 Hatteras. If in the market for a quality production sportfish in this size range, this is a boat you should take a look at.
