A record number of attendees walking through the Viking display at the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show, which concluded its five-day run yesterday is a solid indication of the drawing power of the Viking fleet. Even marginal weather with famous Miami liquid sunshine could not keep the crowd away. Look for the complete show rundown in Friday’s email.
This new range of technically advanced yachts has already stamped the Princess marque firmly on the 100 ft-plus market.
The flagship Princess 40M is a sublime expanse of interior and exterior living space which can comfortably accommodate up to twelve guests and seven crew in complete privacy. Constructed to world-class standards and with enviable presence, she delivers class-leading levels of luxury and build detailing. She also offers enormous scope for customisation, enabling owners to create their ultimate yacht.
Sleek looks disguise the tri-deck yacht’s enormous interior which offers considerably more volume than many rivals of the same length, whilst great attention has been paid to achieving the highest recognised standards for quietness and comfort. Drop down balconies transform the main saloon into a spectacular area for entertaining and relaxing with a formal dining area enjoying extensive views through panoramic windows.
The magnificent owners suite takes pride of place forward of the main deck and is exceptionally spacious with a palatial bathroom which can be specified as individual ‘his and hers’ if required. It also features expansive walk-in wardrobes and an ante-room which owners can specify to suit their requirements. Space below deck is exceptional and can accommodate up to five additional staterooms with ease.
Attention to detail, and to guest comfort, are evident throughout, in everything right down to the under floor heating in all guest bathrooms. A grand central staircase links each deck from the sundeck to the lower accommodation and the crew can circulate around the boat using their own discrete stairway between decks.
Superb sea-keeping is augmented with an impressive cruising range, achieved through engineered weight reduction and the latest infused moulding technology.
VIKING TO INTRODUCE THE 62 ENCLOSED BRIDGE CONVERTIBLE
Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show gets under way Thursday, February 14, 2013 for a five day run along Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, and the Viking Yacht Company plans to highlight this prestigious international expo with another breathtaking display of the world’s finest sportfishing convertible yachts.
Based at the 4800 block on Collins, Viking will premiere its latest blue-water masterpiece, the 62 Enclosed Bridge Convertible, the stable mate of the 62 Open Bridge Convertible, which garnered rave reviews at Viking’s recently concluded VIP Preview held last weekend at its service center in Riviera Beach, Florida. The four-stateroom 62 EB is an elegant, high-performance luxury convertible with a climate-controlled helm and lounge area easily reached from the spacious salon with a spiral staircase.
In addition to the two 62 Convertibles, our third new model for 2013 in the display is the 55 Convertible. Our 15 boat fleet also will feature virtually every model in the Viking collection from a pair of 82 Convertibles, in open and enclosed bridge configurations through the 42 Open and 42 Convertible.
Caterpillar is offering an exclusive global concierge service for the new Viking 62 Convertibles, as well as other Caterpillar powered Viking yachts delivered after February 2, 2012. In addition, available extended service plans can be purchased to cover Caterpillar engines for up to 10 years. For more information, please click on this link.
If you missed the VIP, don’t pass up the opportunity to join the Viking Yacht family at the upcoming Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show, which begins on Valentine’s Day, February 14 through February 18, 2013. We will be showcasing 15 amazing Viking Yachts from 42 to 82 feet at our display at 4800 Collins Avenue, including our newest arrival, the Viking 62 Enclosed Bridge Convertible, shown here leaving the Viking plant yesterday afternoon. Even under leaden skies, this new Viking lady lights up with heart drumming excitement.
Two days of ideal south Florida weather were the perfect backdrop to Viking’s 17th Annual VIP Preview at the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida. The boats looked and performed great, the vendors were busy and an enthusiastic crowd of 554 strong definitely enjoyed themselves going on 89 sea trials this past Friday and Saturday. In addition to experiencing the Viking Difference, attendees were also brought up to date on the 75 Motor Yacht and the 92 Convertible launching in 2014.
