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.

She’s All That April 5th, 2018

68 Convertible
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Running on Viking‘s proven hull shape, the 68 Convertible‘s eye-pleasing profile is apparent from every angle. New photos of the four-stateroom blue-water thoroughbred, which debuted less than two months ago at the Miami Yacht Show, reveal why she’s captured the attention of not only Viking enthusiasts but boating and fishing fanatics around the world.


The optional 1945-hp MTU Series 2000 V12 M96L diesels push the 68 C to a 40-plus-knot top end and a 35-knot cruise. With these powerful yet efficient powerplants and a fuel capacity of up to 2,423 gallons, the boat has great range. The Seakeeper 26 gyro enhances stability so you can always enjoy the ride or stay on the bite.

The captain has superb 360-degree visibility from Viking‘s pioneering flybridge center console walk-around helm. The helm and flanking companion seats are joined by port and starboard lounges and a seat forward of the console. Store an abundance of bait or food in the forward top-loading freezer.

The deck design maximizes the space under the 176-square-foot cockpit’s sole. Our shipwrights laminate an aluminum backing plate into the deck for rocket launcher or fighting chair installation. Port and starboard hatches lead to storage for an in-deck fish box, optional live well tub and dunnage box.

Relax in the salon’s port L-shaped lounge while taking in a movie on the 49-inch HD TV (that silently rises from the starboard walnut cabinetry with the push of a button). The galley, with its convenient island counter, is only a few steps away. Facing the galley, the raised starboard dinette seats four comfortably. The midship master has a queen walkaround bed, two hanging lockers, a pair of credenzas, under-bed storage, end tables and a full-size private head with separate shower. 
The 68 Convertible is also offered with an enclosed bridge, which boasts a forward console station, a pod-style aft docking station, a lounge and a custom stainless steel spiral staircase that joins bridge and salon. For more information about either model, we cordially invite you to contact your authorized Viking dealer.

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.
