Why the Viking 70 remains one of the best sportfishing yachts

The convertible Viking 70 is one of the top sports fishing motor boats on the market, offering owners a tried and true design. She was unveiled for the first time by the American shipyard at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October 2010. She is designed to run quickly, fish hard, and win tournaments for her owners. With a length of 21,3 meters, she is lighter, faster, and stronger than many sports yachts in her class and has a four-stateroom layout for extended voyages.

The Viking 70s low angular profile and long, flat foredeck place her in a class of her own, as she was designed to traverse rough and hard circumstances over long distances at great speeds. Her sleek, almost aggressive outward design is intended to break strong waves while remaining stable in open sea. She is the consequence of technology advancements over the previous many decades, offering her owners with superior construction quality. Incorporating carbon fiber throughout her deckhouse, along with traditional materials such as teak wood, she exudes a subtle air of elegance throughout.

Her flybridge features a roomy upper cockpit with space for up to three helm chairs. Additional seating for passengers is provided forward on the flybridge, which offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area. Her aft main deck has outside chairs for viewing the scenery and space for a fighting chain. A hatch in the mezzanine provides access to the engine compartment, where twin MTU engines provide a maximum speed of 42 knots and a cruise speed between 32 and 34 knots. The motorized door to her full-beam main salon opens to reveal an attractive open area with an L-shaped sofa with a day head. It is an island with a granite countertop, under-counter refrigerator, and bar stools that leads into her galley. This configuration adjacent to the four-seat dinette provides options for mingling onboard.

In four luxurious staterooms, the Viking 70 can accommodate up to eight overnight guests with ease. This apartment is located ahead and features a master bedroom with an attached bathroom and king-sized bed. The VIP stateroom with en suite bathroom is positioned in the bow and is nearly as spacious as the master suite, while two additional guest cabins have bunk beds and a shared bathroom.
