Viking Yacht’s latest creation in the 80-foot sportfish category combines heart-pounding acceleration, hardcore fishing options, and a cockpit made for fighting angry Marlin. Step through the door into the salon however, and you are greeted with satin walnut joinery, leather appointments, and a convenient day head just to the left. The J-shaped lounge and hidden 60-inch flatscreen t.v. provide an excellent area to take a break from fishing. A dinette is built-in and sits slightly above the rest of the salon because it doubles as rod storage with the ability to hold 80-pound outfits. And for the captains that like to cook, everyone will appreciate the size of the walk-in pantry in the galley which is literally the size of an extra stateroom.
Outside on the cockpit, which measures 216-square feet, everything is rigged for the serious tournament angler. This fish-focused area includes a transom door for pulling in your catch, tackle storage, freezer, live well, fish boxes, and an ice chest. And of course, looking down onto the cockpit is the custom tuna tower from Palm Beach Towers that includes all electronics and equipment already installed.
The Viking 80C has five staterooms on board including a luxurious full-beam master suite that boasts the full king-sized walkaround bed just like her bigger sibling, the 92 Convertible. Each stateroom on board has their own private head and shower in true Viking fashion.
All that boat can reach 40+ knots? Powered with tier 3 MTU Series 2000 V16 M96L engines each pushing over 2,600HP launches the 80C right out of the water and can hit max speed in no time with a comfortable cruise in the mid 30 knots. There is plenty of power on board as well to run the A/C with two 29KW Onan generators so you never have to worry about fishing in the heat.
