Delivering unparalleled performance under the most challenging of sea conditions, Viking’s new 52 Sport Tower is sure to be the new powerhouse in the fishing tournament circuits. Providing excellent visibility, her streamlined design includes a climate controlled, three-sided fiberglass deckhouse with a raised command bridge helm station. The 142 square-foot cockpit is sized and equipped to meet the high standards of the most experienced crews. Outfitted with twin mezzanine seating with built-in freezer and stowage space, engine room access, a step box cooler, tackle stowage, recessed in-deck fish boxes, and a walk-through transom door with lift gate, the cockpit is both roomy and accommodating.
Below deck, the three-stateroom, two-head layout is comfortable and generous. With a 17’ – 6” beam, the master stateroom forward includes a walk around queen-size bed with a private head and shower. A combination salon and galley complete the interior plan with comfort and room to spare.
Powered by twin MAN 8V 1400 CRM 1,200 mhp second-generation common rail diesels, the 52 has a cruise speed in the mid-30 knot range, with a top end around 40 knots, depending on load, sea and environmental conditions.
Set to debut at the annual Viking Yachts Dealer Meeting in September 2014, the 52 ST will join Viking’s world-renowned fleet of luxury performance sport fishing and cruising yachts. Call a Viking specialist today to hear all the details.
