Viking has launched new motor yacht Viking 93


American yard Viking has launched new motor yacht Viking 93.



Viking 93 is the largest model from the New Jersey yard in more than a decade.
The largest yacht from this yard is only 
 the 32 metre Starter Kit.

This in-house design features a fast planing hull and builds on the success of the yard’s existing Viking 75 Motor Yacht and Viking 82 Motor Yacht series.

This tri-deck motor yacht features a beam of 7.41 metres and a maximum draft of 1.8 metres.

Accommodation is for up to ten guests split between five cabins, including a master suite, VIP cabin, a double and two twin rooms. Tthe crew quarters allows for a staff of up to three people.



Power comes from a pair of 1,920hp MTU V12 2000 M96L engines, which Viking estimates will propel the 93 Motor Yacht to a top speed of 27 knots and a cruising speed of around 24 knots.

Viking yard is going to showcase the Viking 93 Motor Yacht at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Project Antares, also known as YN 18455, has been sold to American client.    



Project Antares is a 
55 metre fast displacement motor yacht that can accommodate 12 guests in six luxurious cabins.

contemporary Italian design with the ingenious engineering typical of this Dutch shipyard.

Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Project Antares offers a maximum speed of 16 knots and frugal fuel consumption, resulting in a remarkable range of 4,500 nautical miles at 13 knots.

Marketing director at Heesen Yachts said that the one of the most interesting features on the boat will be that she’s being set up to act as a sort of mothership to the owner’s fishing boat — he’s a keen sportfisherman so he wanted a much bigger yacht to base his operations from. 

She will be delivered to her owners in November 2018.
