1986 Vista 48 Fishing Boat in Port Charlotte, Florida

Stock #155914

Vista Yachts are large, roomy vessels designed by Kha Shing boat builders of Taiwan and made for cruising and sport fishing adventures. These stunning, intelligently designed vessels were first imported to the United States in 1984.

This Vista 48 Sportfish is a beautiful vessel with an amazing layout for fishing as well as entertaining. This beamy, well-built vessel is not only spacious, she is loaded with amenities. Equipped with economical & reliable Detroit diesels, you can run to your favorite fishing spots with confidence and without breaking the bank. With some TLC, this will be one amazing, head turner once again.

This boat has a TON of potential and a TON of life left in her. Health forces sale. This beauty has not been used for a few years and is said to be formerly owned by Francis Langford and celebrities like Bob Hope and Sammy Davis Jr have spent time on the vessel.

Information On Condition

I was not able to see the boat run, but of course, a full survey should be done prior to taking ownership. Vessel needs a good cleaning and deck needs refinishing. Bottom needs to be detailed.

2017 Survey put the value of the vessel at $130,000.

Safety features include 3 bilge pumps in the aft (cockpit), engine room, and the generator room.

There's an auto CO2 system in the engine room, a with 4 Kidde Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers

Rupp double spreader outriggers

This boat was very well maintained prior to owner taking ill. Priced below market value in order to sell. Boat has been sitting for a number of years.

Eisenglass on bridge enclosure replaced 11/16 New covers on bridge controls and cockpit controls 12/16 Acolgriped entire exterior topside

Water pump impellers changed every 2 years per inspection report 3/17 Shaft log packing, rudder packing, and cutlass bearings checked or service...
