JUNE 29TH, 2021, THE VIKINGYACHT COMPANY HAD ANNOUNCED THEIR NEW 64’ CONVERTIBLE. VIKING IS THE LEADING MANUFACTURER OF 50’ TO 70’ YACHTS IN THE MARINE INDUSTRY. VIKING CONTINUES TO DEVELOP CUTTING-EDGE NEW MODELS DRIVEN BY THEIRMANTRA TO “BUILD A BETTER BOAT EVERY DAY”.
The 64’ Convertible will debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this October. Following the success of the award-winning 54-convertible, the 64’ will continue to impress. The Four-stateroom, a three-head fishing vessel is predicted to be the new standard in luxury accommodation, comfort, and another best-in-class superstar on the tournament circuit.
The 64’s unbroken S-shaped sheer flows gracefully from bow to stern. The swept-back black-masked windshield, pronounced hull, and deckhouse feature lines and distinctive hull-side vents give the 64 an unmistakably Viking profile that is recognizable and revered around the world.
The hull is built with an engineered composite of fiberglass fabrics and coring that’s vacuum-infused with vinylester resin. Great stiffness and strength are brought to the structure while minimizing weight utilizing a calculated resin-to-fiberglass ratio. The structural bulkheads and fuel tanks (which are customized to the shape of the hull) are also resin-infused, and the hull-to-deck is through-bolted every three inches and fiberglassed from inside for a rock-solid union.
The 180 square-foot cockpit is built to maximized space, with easy access to service and storage areas. The bountiful equipment list includes:
The flybridge mirrors other new-generation Vikings with a space-saving streamlined walk-around center console. The beautifully crafted fiberglass module neatly holds a recessed black acrylic panel for flush-mounted all-glass electronics displays. The helm is also equipped with:
The port-side dinette comfortably seats four adults. It sits on a raised platform that provides rod storage underneath while also enhancing the view out the tinted salon windows. The dinette faces the feature-packed starboard-side galley with:
The 64 will also be available as an Enclosed Bridge model, featuring our signature design that includes a complete forward control station, its own luxurious salon with walnut cabinetry and HD TV, stairs from the salon to the bridge, and a docking station on the aft deck.
Twin MAN V12 1550CRM (1550 MHP) diesel serves as the standard power, with several options ranging from twin 1900 MHP to 2025 MHP powerplants. Hull No. 1 of the 64 Convertible will be powered with a pair of MTU Series 12V 2000 M96X (2002MHP) engines.
Bottom Line: The newest ground-breaking champion in the history of the world’s largest and most revered manufacturer of convertible sportfishing yachts.
