  1997 Viper #50 for Sale $8,000 OBO aka (Meat Market, Rattler, Clowns and Jokers)

Viper #50 is for Sale! This is a late model Bennett hull with all current upgrades installed and is being actively sailed out of Byc in Marblehead. It's race ready. Post will be updated with photos, feel free to view boat at Byc or reach out.

Viper 50 is a strong viper we've placed midfleet in the boat and it is actively sailed as part of the MRA series. It's a late model Bennett boat so it avoids some of the delamination issues that the earlier models have had and is overall quite a stiff boat. Being a 1997 it does come with it's share of mostly cosmetic gel coat issues and older seals around inspections ports and deck fittings. Boat is dry from the bottom but does ingest water during heavy rains. The class keel template is based off measurements from 50's keel as well so no fairing required.
