Viking 62 Convertible Yacht Description
Viking Yachts has done it again with its Feb. 2013 release of the all-new 62 Convertible. The composite cored hull is resin infused with a high modulus of Dupont’s Kevlar, carbon fiber and knitted fiberglass laminates selected to reduce weight while increasing the overall physical properties of the structure. Staying in line with this thought process (weight and strength), the 62 Convertible’s interior stateroom and hanging locker doors, as well as cabinet fronts throughout the yacht incorporate honeycomb coring for further weight reduction.
She also has recessed engine cooling water pickups, refined propeller pocket entry to enhance flow to the five-bladed wheels for reduced noise with better traction, and modified architecture to the struts and rudders adding to an efficient and slippery running surface delivering speeds in excess of 42 knots with a pair of Caterpillar C32-A engines rated at 1,925mhp. The unbroken sheer sweeps gracefully bow to stern. The Viking 62 Convertible presents eight feet of freeboard at the bow along with the gentle crown on the flush foredeck is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, and increases the headroom in the forward stateroom. A newly designed engine room vent fascia with longitudinal fins give the boat the illusion of speed even at rest, while keeping the machinery space dry and supplying a rush of combustion air. From look to performance the 62 makes a statement on any dock.
The 62’s salon is a delight to the senses and your first impression will be that you are aboard a much larger yacht. With nearly 19 feet of beam, the expanse resembles a stately great room, lush with individually chosen planks of random, natural teak each one featuring a tight, fine grain that defines the area with sense of richness and custom appointments. She also has a home theater system that includes a 46-inch flat screen television, which rises from the teak cabinetry and an audiophile Bose system.
The serving island, a Viking 62 Convertible innovation, is topped with custom granite, as are all of the counters in the L-shaped galley. The island is ideal for prepping meals at the dock or under way, and allows more freedom of movement throughout the area with two egress points. Drawer-style under counter refrigeration and world-class appliances will bring smiles to even the most demanding chefs.
Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the luxury and comfort of the Viking 62 Convertible yacht.
