Project: Viking 68 Convertible

Viking continues its dominance of the sportfishing yacht industry with the introduction of the Viking 68 Convertible, a four-stateroom blue-water convertible with unmatched performance, bulletproof construction, luxury interior accommodations, advanced propulsion, and boat-control technologies.  The 68 Convertible is designed and engineered to function equally as well as a tournament-ready offshore runner and a cruising yacht with all the conveniences and technology that you’ve come to expect from Viking.  The optional Seakeeper gyro stabilizer heightens the level of comfort during both fishing and cruising activities. Anglers do battle in a 12 square meters cockpit, while guests can watch from an air-conditioned observation mezzanine.  Running on Viking’s proven hull shape with a 12.1-degree transom dead-rise, this beautiful battle wagon delivers a soft ride in rough seas, with a 35-knot cruising speed and a top end approaching 40 knots. An aggressively raked stem, gently sloping sheer, swept-back black-masked windshield and flying bridge brow present a powerful yet elegant picture.  Official launching date and presentation for the 68 Convertible is for early 2018 for the Miami boat show.
