Occupying the first slip along the make ready dock this week is the new Viking 62, which will serve as a company demo this summer and winter for upcoming tournaments and boat shows. This year’s edition sports a shimmering blue hull, a custom Palm Beach Towers’ tuna tower, and teak decks for a truly one-of-a-kind sportfishing yacht
Twin Caterpillar C32A diesels rated at 1,925 mhp each will deliver top speeds in excess of 42 knots, and there is ample room around the engines for accessibility to various ship systems and for ease of maintenance.
Viking’s legendary attention to detail can be seen throughout the yacht. The random teak joinery accents the lush grain of the wood and the high-gloss finish complements tone and color. The mappa burl dinette table and custom granite countertops in the galley add final touches of elegance.
The forward VIP stateroom features a queen-size walk-around bed with an innerspring mattress. A crossover berth arrangement also is available.
