As always, a new Viking starts with a freshly designed hull to take full advantage of the available power so as to perform to our formidable standards. The 75 Motor Yacht has a convertible running surface to not only utilize the available horsepower to its best advantage for speed and efficiency, but also for ease of handling and sea-keeping ability. These elements are major differences between our 75 MY and other motor yachts of similar and even longer LOA. The first boat, delivered with a pair of C32-A Caterpillars developing 1,925 mhp each. With a 30 knot cruise and a top end in the mid-30 knot range. With this kind of speed, longer distances can be comfortably covered in a day’s run opening up new cruising areas and expanding opportunities for traveling in motor yacht fashion.
The Viking 75 Motor Yacht is filled with special features and spacious accommodations. The tri-level layout demonstrates an intelligent use of space with accents on family comfort and usability. Twin molded fiberglass staircases lead from the teak planked swim platform to the aft deck with its U-shape lounge and table, a perfect invitation for al fresco dining at the yacht club, or on the hook in Nantucket Harbor. A glass door slides open to the salon and you are greeted with the warmth of hand-finished teak joinery, and the rich textures of designer fabrics and soft leathers balanced with natural lighting that feeds in from the salon windows.
A custom made sofa and cocktail table on the port side faces teak cabinetry with a built-in entertainment center and flat screen television, which rises on an electric lift. Moving forward, the center area combines a formal dining area with seating for six, and a galley capably equipped to turn out anything from a shrimp cocktail to a 20-pound roast.
A lower helm station is complemented with an electronic navigation and communication package provided by Viking sister company Atlantic Marine Electronics. The helm area features a pair of leather seats and additional seating is available at the port settee. Lounge seating also is provided forward on the main exterior deck, along with a large sun pad making this a most versatile area at the dock or under way.
Below, accommodations include five nicely proportioned staterooms, each with its own head and shower, including a full beam master suite and crew quarters with private access from the stern.
