Viking Yachts launch 92' Enclosed Bridge Convertible Sportfish Yacht

Viking Yachts, mainly a manufacturer of sportfish type yachts have launched their largest yacht to date, their flagship 92-foot Enclosed Bridge Convertible Sportfish. Not so long ago, many experienced tournament skippers and anglers felt a boat over 70-feet was on the cusp of being too large to effectively compete on the tournament trail. But the Viking 74 Convertible launched in May 2004 proved differently. Fast forward to the fall 2008 when the launch of the 82 Convertible continued the upward trend. 

The brand new 92' hit the water on May 20th, 2014 at the company's New Gretna, New Jersey facility. She also now represents the largest resin-infused built convertible sportfish yacht in the United States. She is spacious featuring a 23-foot overall beam and the yacht's master suite takes full advantage of that. There are five other cabins for guests to utilize making an overall 6-suite layout on this large sportfish. Each of the rooms have their own private head and shower. 


LOA: 93' 4" (28.45 m) 
BOA: 23' 5" (7.03 m) 
Draft: 5' 10" (1.77 m) 
Gross Weight*: 195,000 lbs. (88,450 kg) 
Fuel Capacity: 4,000 gals. (15,141 l) 
Water Capacity: 450 gals. (1,703 l)

As to how far along in construction she is, the yacht has been having furniture installed as well work on the bimini and deckhouse windows. All interior furnishings plus the wood trim for overheads and soles was made at the woodshop owned by Nautor Swan. Accommodation is likely in four cabins all on the lower deck.
