Galati Yacht Sales— Anna Maria is proud to announce the sale of a 2020 68 Viking Yachts Convertible. Galati Yacht brokers Chris & Ron Hirshberg had the honor of assisting their buyer of this new Viking Yacht, close the deal on November 1st, 2019. GYS extends congratulations to the new owners of this brand new 68 Convertible, and welcome to the Galati Family.
The 4-stateroom, blue water convertible is acclaimed best in class with unmatched performance, luxurious accommodations, and advanced propulsion and boat-control technology. The 68 Viking Yacht Convertible was designed to function equally as a fierce tournament-ready contender and cruising yacht. Coming from a long pedigree, the 68 impresses at the dock, and of course in the blue-water arena.
The 2020 68 Viking Yacht features the attributes of all the larger Viking Yachts and delivers the handling and efficiency of a smaller vessel. Running on Viking’s proven hull shape with a 12.1-degree transom deadrise, the Viking 68 C delivers a soft ride in rough seas. With a 35-knot cruising speed and a top end approaching 40-plus knots. An aggressively raked stem, gently sloped sheer, swept-back black-masked windshield and flying bridge brow presents a stunning visual that will have heads turning wherever you go.
The 176-square foot cockpit provides plenty of maneuverability for the tournament angler. While the air-conditioned observation mezzanine keeps guests comfortable when watching the action below. The four stateroom, four head layout provides the utmost privacy; and will also be sure to please the most particular yachtsman and tournament angler. The Viking 68 Convertible uses the 19’ 2” beam to the max, with an expansive salon that is the perfect combination of intelligent use of space and function. The open galley arrangement is spacious with plenty of natural light making this the perfect space for socializing.
The master stateroom utilizes nearly the full beam of the yacht and features convenient storage space, queen-size walk-around bed, a maple-lined hanging closet with walnut doors, 32-inch HD TV and ensuite head with separate shower. The forward stateroom features a walk around queen bed with cavernous stowage compartments. Both the starboard and crew staterooms showcase the upper and lower berth arrangements.
