The Viking 93MY is a 93-foot luxury motor yacht with a 24-foot beam that was launched by New Jersey-based Viking Yachts in 2018. The 93MY is the largest yacht ever built by Viking, not to mention the most luxurious, and is of course something of a departure for a company famed more for their agile sportfishing vessels. Yet this is as stylish and sleek a design as anything you will see floating on the Mediterranean and boasts signature Viking design motifs such as ample space, an enclosed bridge, a superbly balanced, Michael Peters-designed planing hull and that elusive, Made-in-America craftsmanship that sets Viking apart from its competitors.
The enclosed bridge on this model is one of the largest you will ever find on a yacht of this class, and features a raised helm station that has been custom-made by Atlantic Marine Electronics for peerless navigation. The dashboard features Garmin touch-screen instrumentation, a ZF joystick, bow and stern thrusters, power-assisted steering and CCTV screens across from three leather-clad Stidd helm chairs that enjoy gin-clear visibility through wrap-around mullioned windows. Elsewhere on the bridge there is a large L-shaped sofa, a glazed retractable sunroof, glossy walnut cabinetry and a convenient day-head. Transparent sliding glass doors in bulky stainless-steel frames fully open up to lead out to an exposed aft-sun deck on the flybridge level, featuring a low-slung, U-shaped leather sofa and an angled wet-bar with Caesar-stone worktops, an icemaker, a sink, four bar stools and an outdoor Kenyon Grill.
The main deck is similarly well-appointed and includes a sprawling foredeck area with a Portuguese Bridge-style sofa and a marina-facing leather sunpad that can accommodate up to five sunbathers. At the rear there is a sheltered aft-deck lined in durable teak with yet another walk-in wet-bar, a transom dining sofa with a table, and side steps down to a hydraulic swimming platform. You will also find the transom garage down here where you can store a pair of water toys, though this garage is large enough when fully opened to transform the swimming platform area into a fun aft-beach club.
Internal main deck spaces have been crafted by WBC Design, and impress with your choice of teak, walnut or maple surfaces in high-gloss or satin finishes and durable Avalon flooring. There is a curved staircase to the bridge to starboard, while to port you will enjoy relaxing on the huge U-shaped leather sofa with room for up to 8 guests. Positioned centrally is a formal dining table to port and, to starboard, a floor-to-ceiling double glass door that leads to a cutaway-bulwark cocktail terrace. At the front of the main deck cockpit, you will find an open country-kitchen galley that is larger than many studio apartments. A four-zone hob, a 7-foot-tall Sub-Zero fridge-freezer, a microwave, a convection oven, a central island, a double-sink, a breakfast bar, a day-head and a U-shaped forward sofa are all to be found in this incredible family-sized kitchen.
The front half of the lower-deck features three en-suite staterooms plus a snug bunk berth for up to 8 guests, and rooms benefit from large porthole windows or knife-insert windows. Positioned amidship, however, is possibly the largest owner’s stateroom ever to be found on a yacht of this class. This full-beam suite benefits from two trapezoidal hull windows, a private staircase, a king-sized bed with bedside tables, a walk-in dressing room with hanging closets, a work-desk, a breakfast table with two seats, plenty of hidden storage and a bathroom with two sinks and a shower cubicle. Located up against the engine room, meanwhile, is a crew quarters with sleeping space for up to 3 members of staff that comes with its own dinette and bathroom.
No expense has been spared in equipping this mammoth yacht with the most powerful engines available. Buyers can choose from standard MAN V12 twins, a pair of CAT C32Bs or top-of-the-range MTU V12 M96X 2002MHP diesels for top speeds of almost 28 knots. The Viking 93MY can also be fitted with a Seakeeper SK 35 stabilizer for reduced roll in choppy waters, while a pair of pop-up wing helm stations in the cockpit prove helpful when docking. Thanks to this yacht’s durable hull, crafted for bluewater conditions, and a fuel capacity of 2,007 gallons, this is a superb long-range luxury yacht that can take you all the way to the Bahamas.
