What’s hot this summer? We’ll make that easy for you with this awesome list of must-haves to outfit all your summer fun.  

Awlgrip Awlwash

Turn heads this summer with your stunner. Awlgrip’s Awlwash will make your Viking stand out at the docks. This boat soap does not contain alkalis, acids or abrasives. It is free-rinsing which decreases drying time and contains no materials harmful to the marine environment.

Huk ICON Long Sleeve

The Huk ICON is one of the most popular fishing shirts available. When you wear this comfortable, rugged long-sleeve you’ll be wearing apparel that not only looks great, but is made from state-of-the-art fabrics, durable poly-knit construction and the most advanced materials for protection against the elements.

Floridian Portable Grill

This Floridian Grill brings you the look and feel of the built-in version, with the convenience of portability. It’s a tabletop grill that can be used on any surface without burning the counter underneath. The compact grill doesn’t emit any residual heat from the bottom or sides of the grill so even the thinnest plastic tablecloth will be safe for use with your grill.
Release Marine Teak Deck Chairs & Cockpit Table
Fish to feast! Change your Viking cockpit into an outdoor dining experience in a few simple steps. Release Marine can help you add an extension to your current fighting chair pedestal to accommodate a custom teak cockpit table as seen on Oyster Harbor Marine‘s 52 Convertible. Then add some Release Marine teak deck chairs and bring on the guests!
Dometic Portable Refrigerator with WiFi
Dometic‘s high-tech CFX Series refrigerator/freezers chill or deep-freeze food down to -7 degrees without a need for ice. The CFX models are fitted with heavy duty features like reinforced corners, stainless steel hinges and a robust lining to perform in extreme conditions. This cooler includes WiFi capabilities allowing temperature control and monitoring via its app.
Wolf Outdoor Grills
Everything tastes better al fresco. With Wolf barbecue grills, as with every Wolf product, you can count on quality construction and exceptional performance through years of outdoor cooking. Wolf BBQ grills are sculpted in double-wall stainless steel and precision-welding so they will not rust or hold water. Just imagine the juicy possibilities. 

JBL Clip Portable Bluetooth Speaker

The JBL Clip 2 is an ultra-light, rugged and powerful portable speaker. Completely waterproof, the Clip 2 provides eight hours of playtime allowing you to take your music with you wherever you go. Stream music wirelessly via Bluetooth or plug it into a smartphone or tablet. With its upgraded carabiner, clip it to your clothes or backpack for any adventure.
Siren Marine Boat Monitoring, Tracking and Control Device
The Siren is a boat monitoring device at its core, but expandable to mirror the same concepts as home automation. Monitor motion and entry points on your boat, be alerted if the boat moves out of its designated area, and check battery and bilge levels, amongst other options. Welcome to your connected boat.

Audrey Wall Light with USB Port

Quick Marine Lighting’s Audrey Wall Light is a wall mounted, adjustable reading light in aluminum with either a polished or satin chrome finish available in leather or neoprene. Red colored glass is available.

Popup Charger

Every boat, and house, needs this pop up 110v and USB charger. It is easily installed and stays hidden when not in use but is stylish and convenient when needed.

The Viking Engineroom
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Perhaps no other area of a Viking illustrates our meticulous attention to detail better than the engineroom. From its neatly bundled and loomed wiring, to its bright Snow White Awlgrip finish to its 360-degree access, the Viking engineroom clearly leads the industry in all facets of mechanical quality, functionality and ingenuity.
With Viking Senior Project Engineer Bill Gibbons leading the way, let’s take a look at some of the modern machinery and systems in the engineroom of one of our latest models, the Viking 68 Convertible. Above: Bill points out that the custom Viking exhaust manifold installation on the twin 1,945-hp MTUs arches upward before turning outboard, ensuring access to the generators.
The engineroom’s fiberglass-encapsulated foam stringers are reinforced on top with several layers of carbon fiber. The engines are mechanically fastened to one-inch-thick aluminum saddles that are bonded to the tops of the stringers with a special methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive, says Bill, who has more than 3,000 Viking builds under his belt in 42 years in New Gretna. “It’s a rock-solid installation.”

Proven state-of-the-art systems and machinery lines the engineroom periphery. Outboard of the MTUs, the Delta-T engineroom ventilation system, with its thermostatically-controlled supply and discharge fans, provides fresh air circulation and water-intrusion suppression. Its pneumatically-controlled ventilation dampers can be closed manually but also shut automatically when the fire suppression system is engaged.

Access to Viking‘s custom centralized seawater system with dual pumps and strainers couldn’t be easier- simply remove a panel from the centerline engineroom walkway. Every strainer, pump, filter, hose, connection or any other part in a Viking engineroom is identified with clearly visible and permanent labels.

Left: On the port bulkhead, the freshwater purification system filters along with the port engine LOP (local operating panel) and fire suppression system are in plain view and fully accessible. Right: Bill examines the control box for the centralized sea water system on the starboard bulkhead, which is outboard of the engine’s LOP. Note the easy access to the MTU’s top-mounted oil filters.
 “We’ve set the standard and continue to raise the bar,” says Bill. “That’s what building a better boat every day is all about.”

Viking 48 Convertible
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

With the 48 C, Viking delivers a high-performing sportfishing and cruising convertible with big-boat amenities – three staterooms, two heads, galley and salon – that’s still quite manageable for two-person operation and maintenance. It’s a smart, fun boat with luxurious accommodations from America’s best boatbuilder.
Our custom-designed center console walk-around helm gives the captain 360-degree visibility and a clear view of the cockpit. Flanking lounges and additional seating forward keep guests comfortable. The console holds an expansive recessed and covered area for electronics and dual radio boxes.
Our cockpit design plays an integral role in making the 48 C a hard-charging tournament-winning fishing machine. Coamings are rounded for comfort, toekick space provides safety and balance, a backing plate is laminated into the sole for rocket launcher or fighting chair installation, the radiused mezzanine tooling increases cockpit real estate, and large scuppers make for quick drainage.

The deckhouse contains three main areas – the galley, dinette and salon – that function independently but are also connected in an open, free-flowing layout. The master stateroom’s queen-size walk-around bed with a Handcraft mattress ensures restful nights, and there is plenty of stowage available in the maple-lined hanging locker and drawers.

We can power the boat with twin 900-, 1,000-, or 1,200-MHP MAN diesel inboards. The engineroom is expertly finished and blanketed with Snow White Awlgrip for enhanced visibility and easier maintenance. Like her larger sister ships, the 48 C can be equipped with most Viking mechanical systems, such as a centralized seawater and engineroom ventilations systems, an ice machine, a water maker and a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer.

We’re putting the finishing touches on two 48 Convertibles at our make-ready dock in New Gretna, New Jersey, and another pair of 48 Cs are under construction upriver at the Viking Mullica boatbuilding plant. We invite you to contact your authorized Viking dealer to learn more about this very popular Viking model.

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.

 
For more information about the 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht, or our 75 and 93 motor yachts, we cordially invite you to contact your authorized Viking dealer.

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.
