Hung all over the walls of the Viking Yachts factory in New Greta, New Jersey is the company mantra, “Build A Better Boat Every Day.” It’s this saying that’s instilled in everyone employed at Viking and its why every model splashed is considered best of its class. This is no different with the Viking 62 Convertible which showcases the innovation, performance, and style that the engineers in New Gretna have built a reputation. The Viking 62C is a stellar example of what it means to be a Viking – sexy, powerful, safe, fast, fishing machine - yet comfortable enough to include your family. It is a showpiece for the traditional Viking sportfish and hardcore, big game anglers rejoice in its simplistic, yet distinguished, achievements. The Viking 62 will win billfish tournaments and the hearts of your family at the same time.
The sexiness of the Viking Yachts 62 Convertible is drawn from the unbroken sheer that runs from bow to stern. The eight feet of freeboard at the bow not only creates beautiful, eye-catching lines, but also allows for a lot of extra headroom in the forward stateroom. The 62C is full of well-planned details that dual-purposes. For example, the 62 has recessed engine cooling water pickups and a refined propeller pocket entry that enhances the flow of water to the propellers as well as modifications to the struts and rudders. The result is a smoother, quieter ride that also results in a better fuel efficiency. And with speeds of over 42-knots powered by twin Caterpillar C32-A diesels with 1,925hp each, owners will need enjoy the extra fuel efficiencies to extend their days a little longer.
Sticking with the Viking tradition of a comfortable interior for everyone on board, owners have a choice of choosing between a three or four stateroom layout, with the three stateroom layout giving owners their own private head and shower. In the four stateroom layout, there is a shared head between the portside staterooms. The master stateroom boasts a queen-sized walk-around bed with upholstered headboard and a 32-inch flat-screen television. The extra room in the salon and staterooms is a result from the 62’s 19-foot beam which gives extra space in all important areas on the boat.
You can’t forego talking about the Viking 62 Convertible without mentioning the cockpit. After countless discussions with owners who fought fish from a Viking cockpit, the designers at the New Gretna factory decided on a bi-level 172-square foot cockpit. The upper observation mezzanine is a comfortable place for guests to watch the action as they can stay cool with outside A/C and not worry about getting wet from the boat backing down due to the bridge overhang. The lower-level cockpit is an angler’s dream with an abundance of rod holders, fish box, tons of tackle and bait storage, and fresh and salt-water wash down systems.
