Double debut: The new Viking yacht, powered by mtu's latest Series 2000 yacht engine.
room purrs with twin powerhouses at the ready, the Viking 92’s main salon and staterooms resemble a floating luxury penthouse, with all the features buyers have come to expect in their own homes. Curved doorways, exquisite custom woodwork and other designer touches are in abundance at every turn. The yacht is equipped with eight TVs, many of which rise from teak cabinetry at the touch of a button. All countertops feature custom selected granite. Eight guests can dine in pure style in an air-conditioned dining area. And the galley is appointed with top-of-the-line appliances and a pair of walk-in pantries.
Below deck, there are six spacious staterooms, each with its own private head and shower. The master suite features a king-size bed, walk-in closet, dressing table, his and her bathrooms, and a 65-inch TV. The master suite was designed to share similar dimensions and features with those commonly found in 130-plus-foot megayachts. Just like larger motor yachts, the Viking 92 accommodates a separate area for the crew quarters and galley. With the yacht’s spaciousness, comfort and 4,000-gallons of fuel capacity, the vessel is perfect for long-range travelling.
Making a big splash
Instead of simply building a bigger boat, Viking Yacht Company has built a bigger, better, more luxurious and more cutting-edge boat. After the Viking 92’s introduction at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, it’s no wonder that buyers have taken the bait.
