The Fort Lauderdale Boat Show is always an exciting time to be a Viking Yacht dealer and customer. At last year's FLIBS, the new 54 Convertible took home the award for 'Best In Show' and was a favorite among everyone who visited the display.
This year, the all-new 64 Convertible comes to Fort Lauderdale with the same enthusiasm, excitement, and expectations. Join SI Yachts for the 62nd Annual 'Largest Boat Show On Earth' from October 27th through the 31st on the sunny beaches of South Florida. As one of the oldest Viking dealers in the world, SI Yachts is uniquely situated near the Viking shipyard and can offer personalized service in the purchase or build of your new Viking. We can also take your existing boat in on trade towards the purchase of a new one.
Viking's Line-Up At The Boat Show:
82 Cockpit Motor Yacht
The Viking brand is synonymous with quality, durability, and cutting-edge innovation. Now you can own the Viking standard that has dominated the sportfishing industry for so long in a luxury cruising yacht platform. The stunning 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht is as versatile as it is luxurious, allowing owners to fish and cruise comfortably all in the same adventure. The 82CPMY is designed with four spacious staterooms, including full-beam master suite with a king-sized berth. Enjoy cruising the islands this winter from the flybridge which features a plush seating, a wetbar, and 360-degree views.
With heart-pounding speed in excess of 40 knots, the Viking 80 Convertible continues to be the undisputed champion in the 75-foot and up luxury sportfish category. The 216-square foot cockpit is loaded down with features that would leave any angler envious including generous amounts of rod holders, fishbox, tackle storage, bait storage, a transom door, an air-conditioned mezzanine for your guests, and so much more. For the ultimate offshore tournament sportfish, it's nearly impossible to beat the 80C.
72 Enclosed Bridge
When the 72 Convertible first made its renowned appearance, it was only a matter of time before the first order for an enclosed bridge version would come in. The 72EB has the exact same layout as the 72C featuring four staterooms, each with its own private head. There is a circular staircase that leads to the climate-controlled upper bridge where the helm is located. The enclosed bridge also serves as a second, elevated salon with a L-shaped couch, cocktail table, refrigerator, entertainment center, and stunning views.
64 Convertible - PREMIERE!
Be the among first to step on board the all-new 64 Convertible. Will the 64C follow in its sibling's footsteps and win 'Best In Show'? "This model will dominate against the competition in this category," said Rich Lucas, Viking brand manager for SI Yachts. "There are a lot of 60-foot plus sportfish in the market, but the 64C is special. Viking continues to innovate in their design and construction, and it all comes to fruition in the 64C." The 180-square foot cockpit is streamlined for serious tournament fishing and has a dedicated space for a Seakeeper 26.
Last year's 'darling of the show' is back! The new 54 Convertible has sold several models, as has its stable mates - the 54 Open, Sport Tower, and Sport Coupe. The 54C features a 154-square foot cockpit that is open for easy maneuvering for the crew when a fish is on. There is a 3-stateroom, 2-head layout with comfortable cabins with ample storage for longer trips.
"The wake slices paths of clean water for good bait presentation, and the hull and running surface are designed using a series of computational fluid dynamic programs to run virtual sea trials that help determine the best performance and most effective use of power and trim. The hull structure is a composite of coring materials and fiberglass with vinylester resin infusion." - Peter Frederiksen, Marlin Magazine
54 Sport Coupe
SI Yachts was thrilled to be the first dealer to sell a 54 Sport Coupe! For those that love the sleek, aggressive styling of an express with a climate-controlled deckhouse, the 54SC is the perfect sportfish. All of the cockpit space and fishing features are the same as the 54 Convertible including the dedicated Seakeeper area. Perfect for running to the canyons in rough seas, the command deck has a water-tight door and incredibly comfortable interior.
The Viking 46 Billfish is, in many ways, the ultimate sportfishing boat for the private owner. Don't get us wrong, there is freedom in having the ability to target fish that require hours of running in a 72 Convertible. The 46 Billfish is essentially a paired down version of these larger yachts, but without as much required preparation to fish hard. Center-console owners love the ability to walk out to their dock, load up for the day, and be off in a matter of minutes. While center-consoles are indeed a lot of fun to own, there are limitations. With the Billfish series, Viking aimed to take the ease of operation of a center-console and combine it with the accommodations, amenities, and fishing capabilities of a sportfish. Now with the 46, Viking indeed has created the optimum toy for the fishing and cruising enthusiast who wants a fast, good handling, comfortable sportfish for a variety of boating options.
