Viking 92 Update

Palm Beach Towers Rises to the Occasion                 Like us on FacebookFollow us on Twitter


Viking 92

While the Viking 92 Enclosed Bridge Convertible is the largest Viking yacht built so far in our 50 year history and among the many highlights of our continuing 50th anniversary festivities, still another milestone was reached on Friday, when our subsidiary, Palm Beach Towers, set the yacht’s custom tuna tower in place.



Once the crane had the tower airborne, it was maneuvered over the enclosed bridge roof, a painstaking process requiring multiple steps and numerous hands, while carefully protecting the yacht and the tower.



Getting closer inch by inch, side by side, the moment of truth arrives with another perfect fit.



Secured with a handful of strategic fasteners and several upright stands, the tuna tower, which extends nearly 40 feet from the waterline to the top of the fiberglass sun shade roof, is sufficiently stable so the yacht can be removed from the water, and the rest of the tower work completed on land.

Another New Viking


Viking announced a return to the luxury motor yacht segment during its dealer meeting last June, and in typical Viking fashion, the new 75 Motor Yacht is right on schedule for its premiere at the 2014 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The first boat of the new series will be the 75 Enclosed Bridge Motor Yacht, and an open fly bridge version also will be available. Although the 75 MY is a work in progress, the renderings clearly demonstrate a sleek exterior profile with a number of style cues from our convertibles including the teardrop salon windows and distinctive molded feature lines in the hull and superstructure.


The tri-level layout will provide five staterooms, including a full-beam master suite and privately accessed crew quarters. A spacious main deck will highlight living, dining, and entertainment areas, while the command bridge level, accessed from both the salon and the after deck provide multiple lounges, a wet bar, and grilling area. Preliminary calculations with a pair of 1,925 mhp Caterpillar C32A engines indicate a cruise speed of 30 knots and top end in the mid-30 knot range.

We encourage you to contact your Viking dealer to learn more about this exciting new motor yacht.
