by Malcolm MacLean
Built by US yard Viking Yachts in GRP and delivered in 2013, she is one of the yard’s popular Viking 82 series. The 255 square foot cockpit has an observation mezzanine with plentiful tackle and gear stowage, a custom designed deep freezer for bait, easy, wide engine room access, a refrigerated drinks box, flush rod holders, multiple insulated wells for the catch of the day, a transom box and a transom door.
On the flybridge there are three pedestal helm chairs behind the console and plenty of room for guests on the port and starboard loungers, as well as an intimate dining table area forward. Rod stowage, a freezer, a chill box, a sink and air conditioning are just a few of the many features.
In the saloon, a 55 inch television rises from the cabinetry on an electric lift and a Bose Lifestyle surround sound system deliver a spectacular home theater atmosphere. There is accommodation for up to 10 guests in five cabins and twin 2,400 MTU engines power her to a maximum speed of 37 knots.
Lying in West Palm Beach, Florida, the Viking 82 was asking $7.8 million.
