Viking Yachts launches second 82 Cockpit sportfish yacht
by Miranda Blazeby
US sportfish manufacturer Viking Yachts has launched its second 25.4 metre 82 Cockpit motor yacht. The three-deck semi-custom yacht is the second in the series following the delivery of Marybelle last year.
Both feature a number of customised features chosen by their owners. The second hull sports an orange bootstripe and enclosed bridge, while Marybelle has an open bridge.
The second hull also boasts a 150 square foot teak planked cockpit which can be accessed by dual staircases. The cockpit, along with the aft deck, can be used for fishing, diving and other water sports.
Stainless steel sliding glass doors lead to the spacious main deck saloon while the side windows enable ample natural light to shine through. The galley is offered as both an open and closed arrangement.
Accommodation is split across four staterooms comprising a master and three guest cabins. Each has a private head with walk-in shower. The forward VIP has a queen walk-around bed and a foredeck skylight.
Power comes from a pair of CAT C32A 1,925 powerplants while both MTU and MAN propulsion packages are also available. A large centreline hatch provides easy access to the diesels.
