“The fashionable sportfisher” – What's inside the new Viking 80

13 August 2021· Tom McGhie

The 24.5-metre Viking 80 was built in the United States and was re-delivered in June 2021 following a generous refit.

Originally penned by her builder Viking, interior designer Patrick Knowles Design took on the refit for the vessel. Here, we get a first look inside the newly-updated sleek grey and white sportsfisher.

She’s described as “modern, stylish and ready to take on the beasts of the sea” by her designer, Patrick Knowles, and has been re-designed in a way that gives her a "stylised personality for her new iteration as a highly fashionable sportfishing boat." Plus, her new design has been curated to appeal to those who enjoy challenging the aesthetics of the sportfishing yacht environment and so, inside, the boat sports a colour palette made up of varying shades of grey and oat tones alongside accents of Hermès orange.

The trendy interior continues with a large collection of pop art and a bespoke carpet featuring a bold stitched detail in a specially curated grey yarn.

Other design traits include concrete Caesarstone countertops with white vessel sinks accented by satin nickel. Plus, python-pattern textiles and hair on hide leather seating all contribute to the state-of-the-art finish.

Viking are also currently overseeing the construction of Viking 92, due to be delivered in September 2021.
