The beautiful 2020 68 Viking Yacht Convertible graced the docks of Anna Maria, Florida this past week, and might we say she is stunning. This 2020 68 C is immediately available by Galati Yacht Sales and is ready for her new owner. 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 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; while also 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. Standard amenities in the cockpit also include a fresh and saltwater washdown system, a refrigerated chill box in the salon entrance step so you can stay close to the action throughout the day, a walk-through transom door with a lift gate, a molded nonslip fiberglass sole with aluminum plate reinforcement for fighting chair placement, flush rod holders, tackle and gaff stowage, in-deck fishwell with a macerator pump discharge and stowage compartments for gear, an available circulating livewell, and much more.
The Viking 68 Convertible uses the 19’ 2” beam to the max; with an expansive salon that creates the perfect combination of intelligent use of space and function. From the electrically operated salon door to the pop-up 49-inch HD TV to the engineered-stone countertops in the galley, the 68 Convertible flows with luxury conveniences and amenities for comfortable onboard livability. Plus, a day head is tucked just inside the salon for added convenience. The open galley arrangement is spacious with plenty of natural light and uninterrupted views; making this the perfect space for socializing and/or relaxing.
The four stateroom, four head layout provides the utmost privacy; being sure to please the most particular yachtsman and tournament angler. The master stateroom utilizes nearly the full beam of the yacht. Featuring 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.
