Making Progress: The Viking 82 CMY


Viking’s newest addition, the 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht is making its way down the construction line. The first 82 CMY is expected to be delivered late March.  Boasting a 108 square-foot cockpit with transom door and fixed swim platform, as well as a mezzanine she is fit for fishing and water sports. Its interior will share similar accommodations to her sister, the 75 MY.


The first 82 CMY is an open fly bridge model. The bridge will feature multiple lounge areas, a family sized table, and a wet bar and grill.  The bridge will also showcase a hydraulic davit for stowing and launching the yacht’s dinghy.



Much like the Viking models before her, the Viking 82CMY is sure to be a head turner and crowd pleaser.

Bobby and Robin Lipson Said:

I want your family to know how impressed I am about your company, the first time I met Jim Nelson, I thought he was an honest hard working representative of Galati Yachts. Jim has to be one of most impressive salesman I've come across, and we have 250 in our company. He is believable and classic. I have met many of your sales staff, people make companies, I can now understand why Galati Yachts sales is so successful. The culture of a company is formed from top and sets its standard.

I'm not one to embellish or over state what's expected, Jim Nelson has to my first exception. He represents integrity, honesty, class, and most of all he is believable.

Galati Maritimo Muster in Key West For Super Boat Races

Galati Yacht Sales and Maritimo Yacht owners rendezvoused at the Superboat World Championships in Key West, FL to cheer on the Gold Coast Maritimo Offshore Racing team.


Festivities started Thursday with a kickoff party aboard GYS M58 and M64 Yachts at Stock Island Marina. Throttle man Ross Willaton made a guest appearance. Fans were able to take photos and raise their glasses to wish Ross and the rest of the Maritimo Race Team good luck in the upcoming races for the weekend.

On Friday, race fans boarded the Maritimo Yachts and headed out to watch the races.  Siting at turn one, guests were able to enjoy the energy and excitement. Unfortunately, for the Maritimo team, a blower belt to the supercharger failed during the start of the race.


Friday night Team Galati and Team Maritimo attended the Boat Parade on Duval Street and the VIP cocktail party at Lik Art Gallery.


Saturday, the Maritimo mechanical team rushed into action and had the boat ready for final day of racing on Sunday. Team Galati and Fans took the opportunity to tour Key West and join in camaraderie of the festivities around town.  All in our matching race shirts!


Sunday is Final Race Day! Race fans met at Stock Island Marina for lunch on the docks and then headed out to the races! 

Maritimo was running neck and neck with the boat that ultimately won the world championships when a blown steering hose ended their hopes.



 The boat was traveling at more then 120MPH when the failure occurred and the vessel was sent spinning around and slammed stern first into the water breaking a tunnel tab completely off. “They were neck and neck with the CMS Offshore Racing boat that ultimately won and had it not been for the steering hose mishap things would have been very different,” say Greg Haines, Maritimo Sales and Marketing Manager.


Everyone was safe and the race fans still had a wonderful time despite the mishap and plan to attend the Maritimo Muster with Galati Yacht Sales to cheer on Team Maritimo next year!
