The Viking 64C is a 63-foot convertible sportfishing yacht with a flybridge that was launched by New Jersey-based Viking Yachts in 2021. The newest yacht in the Viking stable, this vessel replaces a previous version of the 64C that was released in 2006, and combines luxurious accommodation with tournament-ready fishing prowess and sportscar-like handling. The latest generation Viking 64 Convertible will debut at the 2021 Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show.
This yacht’s flybridge features a fiberglass walk-around center-console helm station with instrumentation installed by Atlantic Marine Electronics, sitting across from a trio of leather-clad helm chairs. The dashboard features a glazed teak helm pod, flush mounted screens, Bocatech switches, trim tab and thruster controls and the very latest in electronic GPS, touch-screen pads, chart-plotters and more. There is also room up here for a forward seating area with views out across the foredeck, comprised of a pair of side chaise-longues and wide sun-pad that is ideal for afternoon relaxation. The 64C will also be offered as an enclosed bridge model in the future, where you will find an upper salon with an L-shaped sofa, walnut cabinetry and an open-air aft-bridge with rear docking controls. Both of these models can also be fitted with a custom tuna tower installed by Viking subsidiary Palm Beach Towers to transform your vessel into the ultimate fish-finding machine.
One level down and experienced fishermen will delight at the teak-lined, 180-square foot aft-cockpit, where a host of fishing amenities and equipment comes installed as standard. A wealth of flush and mounted rod holders dazzle the eye, while transom fish boxes and a live-well, along with insulated below-deck storage units provide plenty of room to keep your bait and your catch. The cockpit also features essentials such as tackle storage, fresh and salt-water hoses, side lockers and an aluminum floorplate for a fighting chair or a rocket launcher. The cockpit can also be used as an adaptable space for the whole family and comes with a mezzanine level with a four-seater sofa, a freezer, an icemaker, a drinks chiller and integral speakers linked to the yacht’s home entertainment system.
Stepping indoors through an electric door you will find a salon with hand-crafted walnut cabinets, an L-shaped sofa to starboard with a coffee table and room for a 50-inch pop-up HD TV. A few steps forward will take you to a U-shaped dining sofa to port, sitting across from a walk-in galley kitchen with granite work surfaces, a cocktail bar with a pair of stools, Amtico flooring, a four-zone hob, a combination oven, Sub-Zero fridge-freezer units and a stainless-steel sink.
The Viking 64C has room for up to six overnight guests across four en-suite staterooms, including a pair of single berths to port and a double master stateroom positioned towards the bow. The owner’s stateroom, meanwhile, features a queen-sized island bed, maple-lined lockers, bedside cabinets and a bathroom with custom Amtico flooring, granite surfaces and a fiberglass shower stall with a bench.
This sporty yacht benefits from an infused composite fiberglass hull that has been subject to CFD testing to ensure that it runs with superb efficiency in both bluewater and inshore conditions. The yacht can also be fitted with a Seakeeper 26 stabilizer for reduced roll in choppy conditions. Engine options start at a pair of MAN V12 diesels as standard, but optional upgrades include twin CAT C32B 2025MHP engines or a pair of MTU 12v M96X 2002MHP motors. Should you go with the more powerful and more pricey option, then you can expect top speeds well in excess of the 40-knot barrier, more than enough to outpace your pelagic prey.
