Commitment to Excellence…
Aboard the Viking 64 Convertible the cockpit boasts 180 square feet of working space, including a mezzanine deck. The mezzanine actually enhances the cockpit and makes it feel larger because every important detail is built in and then some. Bait freezers, for example are under-mounted to increase capacity. A step to the salon lifts to expose a cavernous drink cooler.
The mezzanine is especially desirable on a yacht this size because it creates an upper and lower cockpit; spectators are close to the action, but never in the way of the angler or wireman, and never obstruct the captain’s view of the cockpit.
In addition, the mezzanine provides an excellent place to relax at the dock or enjoy welcome shade during the mid-day troll. For a very special touch, misters can be added to the underside of the bridge overhang, which emit a refreshing mist of water to cool the area. Standard amenities include a one-piece anodized aluminum ladder to the flying bridge, a molded nonslip fiberglass sole with aluminum plate reinforcement for fighting chair placement, stainless-steel hardware, walk-through transom door with lift gate, an in-deck fishwell with a macerator pump, flush rod holders, gaff, tag stick and mop stowage, fresh and salt water washdown systems, engineroom and lazarette access. For dockside convenience, there are port and starboard Glendinning shore power cord reels. Experienced anglers also will appreciate the increased transom shape, which provides better maneuverability in reverse to help gain line and outgun big fish.
Cruising yachtsmen will appreciate the wide-open space afforded by the 64 Convertible’s cockpit for entertaining and dockside versatility. And with the available climate-controlled enclosed bridge, they will enjoy what is essentially a second salon. A spiral staircase from the salon to the bridge also is available.
The resplendent interior of the Viking 64 Convertible is especially spacious thanks to the yacht’s generous 19-foot 2-inch beam. The sheer volume also allows a variety of interior plans to suit an array of owner requirements. In the salon, for instance, there is a choice of either an L-shaped sofa with a pair of plush bar stools at the galley counter, or a U-shaped sofa. Both arrangements include a custom hi-lo table and provide superb viewing of the 40-inch plasma television screen framed in teak cabinetry above the dinette. An electrically operated door simplifies egress to the salon from the cockpit at the touch of a button. Teak valances conceal air conditioning registers for maximum cooling and reduced noise levels. High gloss joinery throughout the salon and rich designer fabrics and appointments abound.
The U-shaped galley is on the same level as the salon and is designed for maximum efficiency. Convenience and practicality merge throughout the galley with Sub-Zero under counter refrigeration, an electric cooktop, trash compactor and custom grade Corian countertops. Whether prepping gourmet meals at the yacht club dock or making snacks for the nightshift 100 miles offshore, the galley keeps every amenity close at hand. Stowage is both bountiful and easy to reach. Premium Amtico teak and holly flooring is beautiful and durable for life at sea. Opposite the galley, the dinette seats four comfortably.
The Viking 64 Convertible is available with three or four staterooms and three heads. To provide maximum flexibility and accommodate virtually any fishing or cruising assignment, the forward stateroom can be outfitted with crossover berths in lieu of the standard queen berth. The master suite is an elegant stateroom with an athwartship queen bed that lifts to expose
