82 Cockpit Motor Yacht
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

You’re looking at the second Viking 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht, a three-deck enclosed bridge luxury yacht fisher with the performance DNA and tournament-tested cockpit of our legendary convertible sportfishing boats and more interior space and accommodations than any other boat in its class. She’s a beauty, right? Our shipwrights are just finishing up and fine-tuning the 82 CMY for its owner.
As a semi-custom builder, Viking is able to satisfy our customers far beyond their expectations. Special requests are met with a smile and assurances that the job will be done correctly and completed on time. The owner of this 82 added several personal touches to the boat, including the orange bootstripe.
The 150-square-foot teak-planked cockpit is accessed from dual staircases, each flanked by perfectly-placed handrails inboard and outboard. A showcase of intelligent design, the cockpit and after deck serve as an inviting arena for fishing, diving, paddle boarding and other fun water activities. The large centerline hatch provides easy access to the diesels. This boat is powered with a pair of CAT C32A powerplants (1,925 MHP); MTU and MAN propulsion packages are also offered.

Both our 82 CMY as well as 75 and 93 motor yachts can be built with open or enclosed bridges. Our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics will take care of all your electronics and audio/visual needs in custom installations. Dual wing stations with slide-out engine controls give the captain excellent sightlines and flexibility when docking.

Stainless-steel-framed sliding glass doors lead to the open and spacious salon. The side windows balance form and function, providing ample natural light in a design that complements the yacht’s modern profile. You have more flexibility when it comes to the galley area, which is offered in both an open (shown here) or closed arrangement.
Below, four stunningly appointed staterooms illustrate Viking‘s ability to balance elegance and practicality. The master and three guest staterooms each have a private head with walk-in shower. The forward VIP (above) has a queen walk-around bed and a foredeck skylight.

Our construction methods and materials lead the industry. The hull and deck are resin-infused for great strength in an efficient build. With Dave DeVerter,

Supervisor of 2nd Stage Assembly and Finish Carpentry, overseeing the process, our shipwrights through-bolt the two structures every 3 inches and fiberglass the joint from the inside. Dave is one of the legions of Viking team members who settle for nothing but the best in their efforts to build a better boat every day.

Viking 92
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Your family wants a large and luxurious motoryacht with big staterooms, spacious gathering areas and all the latest conveniences and technology. But your dream boat is a bad-ass battlewagon of a sportfisherman with the performance, fishability and accommodations that will put you in the winner’s circle. No worries – you can have both with the Viking 92. 

We offer the 92 in three different models – Open Bridge, Enclosed Bridge and Enclosed Bridge with Skybridge (pictured above). The enclosed bridge is ideal for long-range cruising with its comfortable second salon and protection from the elements, and the skybridge provides the height and visibility benefits of a traditional tower. The cockpit is immense at 238 square feet, and the raised mezzanine is the best seat in the house for watching the fishing action or taking in the sunset.

The luxurious midship master spans the beam, with ample space for a king bed with storage below, a starboard desk/vanity, a port lounge, his and her heads, a 65-inch TV with credenza below and a starboard walk-in closet. The master’s his-and-her head has a shared walk-in shower with separate vanities, heads, sinks and access from the stateroom.

The large wraparound galley includes engineered stone countertops with seating for five, deep-drawer under-counter refrigerator and freezer units (with walnut faces) from Sub-Zero, and an optional corner wine cooler with access from the salon.

On the skybridge, the captain sits in an Ultraleather helm chair aft of a Release Marine teak helm pod with single-lever controls and bow thruster. The MTU Dynamic Positioning joystick is nested in a starboard recessed radio box along with other controls.

Viking’s Demo Boats
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

68 Convertible Running Strong
With the 2018 tournament season ramping up, we take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of our demonstrator boat program and the critical role it plays in building you a better boat every day. Let’s start with this video, which shows our winter demo, the new 68 Convertible, tearing through Palm Beach Inlet on her way home after fishing the Gold Cup earlier this month. 
Each year Viking runs three demonstrator boats – one in the winter and two in the summer. Hands-on experience leads to innovation in all aspects of boat design, from performance, to fishing equipment and features to interior accommodations and comfort. 

Building boats – and using them in the real world – has fueled Viking excellence for decades.

Consistently running, fishing and maintaining the demo boats allows us to showcase our products in the environment in which they were designed to perform. A Viking 68 and a Viking 72 will serve as our demonstration boats this summer.

The leaders of our company are also the guys who fish our demo boats. Director of Design & Engineering Lonni Rutt (left) bumps fists with Sales Manager Mark Waldron after releasing a white marlin aboard the Viking 62 during the MidAtlantic last summer.

Innovative designs, such as our flybridge center console walk-around helm, are often born from on-the-water experiences. 

“Each demo boat is an engineering tool, a design tool, a marketing and sales tool, and a customer service tool,” says Ryan Higgins, Viking Southeast Sales Manager and Demonstrator Program Manager. “With our demos, we can show a level of commitment to our customers that you’ll only find with Viking.”
 
See the 68 C demo boat and the entire sportfishing and motor yacht family at our invitational 22nd Annual VIP Boat Show Preview February 2nd and 3rd at the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida. Please feel free to contact your authorized Viking dealer for more information.

68 EB Coming Soon
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Viking has been the pioneer in the design and development of the enclosed bridge for decades, and the latest example of our prowess in this facet of boat building is our new 68 EB. 

Captains and owners appreciate being comfortably out of the weather in the climate-controlled command center of our enclosed bridge boats. The wraparound windshield provides excellent visibility in all directions. Plus, our enclosed bridges (the 72 EB is shown above) are large enough to hold a luxurious second salon. The enclosed bridge option is offered with our sportfishing boats from 62 to 92 feet and our 75, 82 and 93 motor yachts.

The 68 Enclosed Bridge will follow the introduction of the Viking 68 Convertible, an open bridge model in a Shimmering Blue that will make its world premiere at the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue February 15 through 19.

The open and enclosed bridge models of our 68 Convertible share the same four-stateroom, four-head layout. Notice that the crew quarters are discretely located, accessed via a separate set of steps off the companionway.

The incredible 68 C will be shown at our invitational 22nd Annual VIP Boat Show Preview, February 2-3, 2018, at the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida. For more information, contact your authorized Viking dealer.

Viking 44 Open
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube
Our new 44 Open not only appeals to families ready to take the next step into the Viking lifestyle, it’s also a logical choice for owners of outboard-powered center console boats looking for more comfort, conveniences and weather protection.

Because of its efficient use of space and larger-boat  amenities, the 44 O also gives seasoned owners who are looking to downsize the opportunity to continue experiencing Viking quality and performance.
The command deck of the 44 Open shares many of the practical and notable aspects of its larger siblings, including our signature centerline forward helm station on a raised platform for enhanced visibility. A table accompanies a four-person L-shaped lounge (with storage underneath) outfitted with comfortable padded seating. The port console holds refrigeration and stowage that includes tackle drawers. 
Just steps away from the command deck, the 119-square-foot cockpit is tournament-ready with flush rod holders, a transom live well, and a transom door with a lift gate, tackle stowage, step-box coolers and in-deck fish and stowage wells. Guests can take in the fishing action from the observation mezzanine’s aft-facing lounge seating (which has freezer storage underneath).  
The starboard-side galley includes teak cabinetry, expansive Corian countertops, an electric range, separate under-counter refrigerator and freezer units and a microwave/convection oven. Other notable amenities include a stereo system with a 24-inch flat screen TV.
A sliding companionway door and a large set of stairs with a starboard-side vertical handrail lead to the climate-controlled salon. With its 16 ft. 4 in. beam, the widest of any boat in this class, the salon is a spacious social area for relaxing and entertaining.
In the climate-controlled forward master stateroom, the island queen bed with mattress has a lift-up top with gas pistons and maple-lined storage underneath. Additional storage includes teak cabinetry and a maple-lined hanging locker. 
Left: A one-piece molded Corian countertop with rounded edges, a sink with satin nickel faucet and custom Amtico flooring are just some of the highlights in the head. Right: With its two-person berth, the aft guest stateroom can accommodate another couple and makes for a nice hideaway for the kids.
 
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is less than a month away, so make plans to come and see the 44 Open, which will be part of Viking‘s 15-vessel display at the November 1-5 event. For more information, please contact your authorized Viking dealer.
