New Model: Viking 52 ST

It does not get much better looking then this, Viking launches its awesome 52 ST, these initials standing for Sport Tower. The relentless research and design department located in New Jersey, Gretna continue to pursue new style to offer to the sport-fisher. This 52 follows what Viking presented with the 42 more or less a year ago in bigger package. That is a three sided hard top covering over half of the cockpit deck.  If all year cruising and fishing is in your cards a sportfish yacht like the 52 ST should be high on your cards. The 52 ST also offers an interesting accommodation plan both outside and below. The lower deck presents a three double cabin layout with an owners cabin to fore, and two guest bunk berths located to starboard side. A large C-shape galley is located to port side. The cockpit offers extreme comfort to boast with a central console helm, shared by two companion seats on both sides. To starboard is a C-shape dinette with a wet-bar opposite. Power is twin MAN 1200hp engines which give an estimated 40 knots max speed.
