Viking’s legendary reputation for building peerless sportfishing yachts continues to wave its reign as we introduce the impeccable 72 Convertible. A family owned and operated company, Viking’s commitment to excellence began in 1964 when brothers, Bill and Bob Healey, opened the doors to a small factory on the Bass River near Atlantic City, New Jersey, with a singular goal amplified grit and resolve to build a better boat every day. This unyielding mission embraced by our talented shipwrights for more than half a century and supported by our domestic and international dealer network has made Viking a world’s leader in the marine industry with an ultra-modern plant that designs and manufactures nearly 90 percent of what goes into every Viking yacht from 42 to 92 feet. This new 72 Convertible is the latest edition of this fabulous story offering ground breaking blue-water performance, style, and engineering.
The Open Bridge accommodations layout includes four staterooms each with a private head, a J-shape sofa in the salon, a U-shape galley with custom granite countertops, crown molding on upper cabinetry, a large walk-in pantry forward, and a queen berth in the forward stateroom.

I represented the owners during the initial purchase. I firmly believe that she's a better boat today than when she was delivered new in 2019. In my 50 years in the business, I have met and employed many competent marine professionals. The captain and engineer that manage this exceptional 72 Viking are the best I have ever worked with. She has been completely debugged and perfectly dialed in for the next owner. With only 615 hours, extended warrantees on the engines and Seakeeper stabilizer Leslie Ann is an exceptional offering.
