Is Viking still making the 92’ sportfish yacht? After much success with the Viking 92 sportfish comes a new heir to the throne – the 90 Viking – set to debut at the 2023 Viking VIP, followed by the Miami Boat Show. The 90 Viking will replace the 92 Viking sportfish yacht in response to the IMO international mandate (Tier III, which has been delayed until December 2023) that ultimately set the company on a course to design, engineer and build a game-changing 90-foot luxury sportfishing yacht. Drawing from their experience with the 92, Viking set out to redesign a sleek, fast luxury sportfish yacht with enhanced performance – featuring advanced propulsion systems and weight-saving building materials – unmatched fishability, and world-class accommodations. Although the 92 is no longer in build, you can still get your hands on one of these battlewagons by shopping pre-owned.
The Viking Yacht Company outdid itself with the inception of the 92 Viking in 2014, one of the most desirable large sportfishing yachts ever built and the most technically advanced of its time. Anglers received the best of both worlds, as she flourished as a fierce tournament contender and luxury motor yacht, raising the bar in sophistication, design, and engineering. The 92′ sportfish yacht was available in the Enclosed Bridge, Sky Bridge, and Open configurations, with a hull designed for speed and enhanced handling.
The stunning 92 sportfisher includes many motor yacht cues aside from spaciousness, including dual mezzanine decks, one in the cockpit, and one on the main level aft deck. Plus, alfresco dining on the aft deck with an outside galley area and grilling station. And a 24’ 1” beam accentuates an expansive interior that showcases an opulent salon with a custom-designed home theater system, commanding views, and an abundance of lounge seating.
On the business end of the 92 Viking, the expansive 238-square-foot cockpit boasts a large mezzanine and a raised viewing area to stay close to the action. Plus, built-in refrigeration and freezer space, ample storage, and insulated fish wells below the main cockpit sole. The helm station affords superb visibility, ample seating, and plenty of rod and electronic stowage.
Below deck, six luxurious staterooms combine traditional and modern elements, each with a private head and shower. For added convenience, a day head is situated in the salon, and an aft crew quarters offers separate access from the cockpit, with a full head and shower, a compact galley, and a second laundry center.
The comfort and elegance of a motor yacht with the fishability and performance of a hard-core sportfisher perfectly describes the 2020 Viking 92 Skybridge “Another Day In Paradise.” This 92 Viking comes highly customized, providing an incredible platform for fishing or cruising with unmatched amenities. Her striking profile, extended list of options and features, and luxury interior appointments make this sportfish yacht highly desirable for even the most demanding owner.

An international emissions mandate, initially adopted in 2015, ultimately led the sportfish manufacturer to cease production on the 92 Viking and redesign a yacht that complies with the IMO Tier III standards — hence the introduction of the 90 Viking. Although delayed until 2023, the Tier III emissions mandate comes from the International Maritime Organization (IMO), which aims to reduce nitrogen-oxide emissions 70% more than the Tier II standard for all vessels with a load-line length greater than 78 feet. Tier III specifically targets the NOx gasses that contribute to smog and acid rain, deplete the planet’s ozone layer, and aggravate asthma in humans. All yachts that fall under this category must install Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems in engine rooms that scrub emissions using urea. Unfortunately, the technology to develop SCR systems small enough and practical enough does not exist for yachts of modest size.
When still in production, the 92′ Viking had a price range between $9-12 million depending on custom features, options, and add-ons.
The 90 Viking, the new flagship, has a base price of over $11.6 million.
The 92 Viking has a standard fuel capacity of 4015 Gallons (15,198.43 L).
The largest Viking Yacht ever made was the 93 Motor Yacht, followed by the 92 Viking Sportfish Yacht. The 90 Viking is the largest yacht currently in production.
With the MTU Series 2000 / V16 M96L diesel engines, the 92 Viking can hit speeds of 35 knots and a cruise speed of 31 knots.
Viking Yachts are priced at top dollar amounts simply because they are the gold standard of sportfish yachts. You are paying for quality yachts constructed 90% in-house, accentuating engineering and design excellence. Viking Yachts is arguably the best sportfishing manufacturer in the world.
The 92 Viking has a gross weight of 205k pounds.
