Since 2014 when the Viking Yachts 62 Enclosed Bridge first debuted, serious tournament anglers looking to run a 60-foot plus sportfish on the circuit have chosen the 62EB time and time again. This hardcore fishing machine is 95,000 pounds of the highest quality materials and cutting edge technology on the water today. As with every Viking, the designers strived to “Build a better boat every day” and the result was nothing short of spectacular. The showcase of the 62EB’s strength is in its composite cored resin-infused hull which is stronger and lighter than others in its class, resulting in an overwhelming improvement in performance and fuel efficiency. And with a cruising speed in excess of 42 knots with twin Caterpillar C32-A 1925hp engines, owners waste little time in getting to where they want to go.
With a beam of 19-feet, Viking designers reimagined the salon into a much larger living room with much of it built with a beautiful teak. A 46-inch flatscreen television is the center of the home entertainment system which can hide within a teak cabinet when not in use. Viking’s signature serving island with custom granite countertop has bar stools for extra seating around the L-shaped galley.
From the salon, travel down the companionway to the private staterooms. The Viking 62 Enclosed Bridge has the ability to have both a 3 and 4 stateroom configuration depending upon the needs of the owner. The master suite is place amidships and boasts a queen-sized walk-around berth with a night table on each side along with ample storage and hanging locker. The optional VIP layout features a suite with another queen-sized walk-around berth or the option exists to instead have crossover bunks. Each stateroom has its own private head and fiberglass shower.
Most important to the angler on board, the fighting cockpit is well equipped with lots of fishing features. At 172-square feet, the size of the cockpit may be its best asset as it provides for ample room for crew to move around when a fish is on and the frenzy during a tournament ensues. The observation mezzanine is shaded and kept dry thanks to the overhand from the enclosed bridge. Additionally on the cockpit, fishing enthusiasts will feel they have died and gone to heaven between the flush-mounted rod holders, fresh water wash down, fix box, storage areas for gaffs and tag sticks, and an amazing stereo system to give the angler that extra bit of inspiration when in the fighting chair for extended periods. Owners wanting the optional Seakeeper Gyro Stabilizer will appreciate the fact that Viking has a dedicated space beneath the cockpit for its installation.
