Viking 92 sportfish superyacht launched - see video of flagship's first splash
by Risa Merl
US builder Viking Yachts has launched its much-anticipated new flagship, the 28.45m Viking 92 Enclosed Bridge Convertible sportfish superyacht. See the video below.
Viking revealed the 92 last spring, and after two years of design and development, the largest Viking sportfish yacht yet has splashed at the New Jersey-based yard. In addition to being Viking's largest, the 92 is also the largest resin infused convertible sportfishing yacht to be built in the United States.
The Viking 92 Enclosed Bridge Convertible superyacht accommodates 10 passengers in five staterooms, including a full-beam master stateroom, two doubles and two twin cabins, and she has separate crew accommodations for two crew members accessible from the cockpit. Her seven-metre beam allows for spacious accommodations.
The latest Viking combines a fishing pedigree with superyacht-size accommodations and luxurious options. Formal dining inside accommodates eight guests and the main saloon is plush and comfortable. Outside there are dual mezzanine decks – one in the cockpit and one adjacent to the main deck. The latter hosts rear-facing lounge seating and al fresco dining. There is also an outdoor galley and grill.
As with all Vikings, she is designed as a fishing machine and among other amenities has a tuna tower designed and fabricated by Palm Beach Towers, a Viking subsidiary. The new flagship is scheduled to make her public debut at the Fort Lauderdale boat show this October.
