Rolling down the line at Viking Yachts

 

With all this snowy weather, let's turn up the heat and take a peek at two white hot boats moving down the line at Viking. This is 52905, a 52 ST (Sport Tower) rolling on Line 3. The boat is built with our popular 52 Convertible resin infused hull, which also incorporates Aramid and E-glass fiberglass along with strategically placed foam and end-grain balsa cores in its lamination process. The three-sided fiberglass deckhouse delivers sport coupe style, and keeps the command bridge center stage and close to the 142 square foot cockpit with its twin mezzanine seating and transom fishbox.

The 17 ft. 6 in. beam affords ample room for a center helm with electronic stowage in a raised pod forward, three helm chairs, U-shape seating around a table, and to port, a molded console with stowage and refrigeration. The deckhouse is molded from two parts and designed with two sizeable overhead areas to stow fishing rods and other bulky tackle.

Following 52905 is hull number six, showing the makings of the master stateroom forward, and the forward starboard stateroom. Depending upon the owner's plan, two and three stateroom layouts are offered, and either version provides two heads, a spacious salon with a galley, and a laundry center.

Before the molded, composite command deck/engineroom ceiling is installed, this aft view showcases a pair of MAN V12 1400 CRM engines, which deliver a high 30 knot cruise and a top end of 40 knots plus.

An example of Viking's legendary attention to detail, bronze seacocks, sea valves and strainers for all thru-hulls below the waterline are finished in bright Awlgrip white.

Beat the Clock
When will the ice melts

 

This freezing weather is even worse than hearing Vanilla Ice rap his "Ice, Ice, Baby" folly. So we have created an Ice Challenge of our own. Out on the water in our frozen basin we have a video cam observing a clock that will stop when the metal object sinks into the water signifying we are ice free. Click on this link to check it out!


 

Now here is your part: be the first to send us the date and time you guess the ice will be melted and you will win a Viking tee-shirt, with a second random winner chosen from all who enter. Send your guesses to marketing@vikingyachts.com.
