Viking Yacht Co. released renderings of its newest model, the 64 Convertible. The boat is under construction at its New Gretna, N.J., manufacturing facility, with a debut slated for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in the fall.
This is the eighth model Viking has launched in the 60- to 70-foot class since 2001, with more than 550 built in that range.
“Every new model is an improvement from the last one,” president and CEO Pat Healey said in a statement. “The team that designed and engineered all of those Vikings is the same team that designed and engineered our new 64. We’re very proud of that.”
The 64 will have a 180-square-foot cockpit with mezzanine seating protected and kept cool by a flybridge overhang and optional air conditioning. As with all Viking convertibles, generous tackle storage, a wealth of fishboxes, cooler and freezer space and rod holders are standard; live wells and a Seakeeper gyro are among the options.
The four-stateroom, three-head layout has a starboard master amidships, forward VIP berth and guest and crew quarters to port.
The 64 also will be available as an Enclosed Bridge model.
Standard power is twin MAN V-12 diesels rated at 1,550 mhp, with options from MAN, MTU and Caterpillar from 1,900 to 2,025 hp each. The first 64 will have twin 2,002-mhp MTU 12V 2000 M96 diesels.
