92 C 4/14/2014  
The development and construction of the Viking 92 Convertible, our new flagship and the largest yacht in our 50 year history, is well under way. The first hull has been molded and the deckhouse will follow shortly.

Clearly, the time has come for a 92 Convertible to rule the seas. Viking is the worlds leader in the manufacturing of large sportfishing convertible yachts. The Viking 74, which premiered in 2004 made tracks to the Winners Circle on the tournament trail dispelling any notion that its size made it less effective to compete with smaller fish boats. The Viking 82 Convertible, which launched in the fall of 2008, continued the trend and its success, both as an open bridge and enclosed bridge makes the 92 Convertible a natural addition to the world famous product line.

The Viking 92 Convertible is breathtaking in style, with gorgeous lines as you would expect from Vikings talented design, engineering and production teams. Beautifully proportioned, a number of design cues reveal whats beneath the surface. The raked stem with its aggressive entry will deliver a smooth ride in rough seas. The flush foredeck provides exceptional headroom in the forward staterooms. Longitudinal air vent fins complement the salon window lines. Vikings signature black metallic windshield mask is framed between molded features lines in the deckhouse and flying bridge.

Elegance and luxury are the hallmarks of the interior and with a 23 ft. 5 in. beam space is put to excellent use with the full beam master suite and five additional staterooms, each with its own head and shower. The salon also benefits from the sizeable beam with lounge and wet bar areas, a formal dining table for eight on the port side and to starboard, a spacious galley with granite countertops, bar stool seating, world class appliances and a pair of walk-in pantries. For convenience while fishing, a day head also is on the salon level. The interior will abound with hand-finished walnut joinery rich in texture with our unrivaled signature craftsmanship.

All Viking yachts feature a cockpit mezzanine, but the 92 Convertible moves the design up several notches with a second mezzanine at the salon door entrance level, with additional seating and a teak table for al fresco dining. An outside galley and grilling area add convenience and ambiance.

The first 92 Convertible will have a climate-controlled enclosed bridge, a virtual second salon. Viking pioneered the development of the enclosed bridge convertible decades ago and the 92 will highlight our commitment to excellence in the evolution of its design with outstanding sightlines, an ergonomic helm station, plush seating, professional electronic and entertainment system installations, and refrigeration. Propulsion choices include engines by Caterpillar and MTU. Vikings sister companies Atlantic Marine Electronics and Palm Beach Towers will supply the communication, navigation and entertainment packages and tuna tower and other custom accessories respectively.

With a late summer 2014 launch planned, the Viking 92 Convertible will have its world premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show October 2014.
