Why the Viking 70 remains one of the best sportfishing yachts

Offering its owners a proven design, the convertible Viking 70 is among the finest sports fishing motor boats available today. The American shipyard first showed her off at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October of 2010. She is designed to go quickly and fish hard, and to bring her owners victory in fishing contests. She has a four-stateroom configuration and is lighter, faster, and stronger than many sports yachts in her class, all while being 21.3 meters in length.

The Viking 70 stands apart from other yachts due to her low angular profile and large, flat foredeck, both of which make her ideal for tackling hard circumstances over long distances at fast speeds. Her low profile and fierce appearance help her to ride out rough seas without losing control. She represents the culmination of decades of technological development, giving her owners access to the finest materials and craftsmanship available. Incorporating modern materials like carbon fiber and traditional ones like teak, she exudes an understated air of grandeur.

On her flybridge, you’ll find a large upper cockpit with capacity for three captain’s chairs. Forward on the flybridge, customers can take advantage of additional seating while taking in the breathtaking scenery. There is space for a fighting chain and outdoor seats on the main deck’s aft. She has two MTU engines that allow her to reach a high speed of 42 knots and a cruising speed of between 32 and 34 knots, and the engine compartment may be accessed through a hatch in the mezzanine. Her main salon is a bright, open area with an L-shaped sofa and a day head, and it’s entered via an automatic door. Her galley has a granite-topped island with built-in refrigeration and bar seating. Alongside the four-person dinette, this arrangement provides even more space for passengers to mingle.

The Viking 70’s four spacious staterooms may sleep up to eight people in luxury. The forward-most master suite features a private bathroom and a king-size bed. Two further guest cabins include bunk beds and a shared shower, while the VIP en suite stateroom is positioned in the bow and gives nearly as much space as the master suite.
