The ideal sports fishing yacht: the Viking 74

    Those on the market for a sports fishing boat would do well to discover the Viking difference with the Viking 74. One of the most popular models from the family-owned Viking Yacht Company, the Viking 74 remains unique among luxury convertible yachts. Focusing on design, performance, and engineering, her beautiful lines and exceptional capabilities ensure she is the standard for convertible fishing yachts in her category.

    Measuring 74 feet in length, she features a fiberglass hull with a beam of 19′ 9″ and a draft of 6′. Rest assured, no expense was spared when the team at Viking created her cockpit. Available in both an open and enclosed bridge configuration, the Viking 74 is a favorite among both recreational fishermen as well as tournament anglers. Offering 218 square feet of workable space, her open bridge configuration has plenty of room for live wells with hatch bottoms, food, and bait freezers, tackle and gear stowage, and an electric gearbox. The raised helm station offers unobstructed views of her stunning surroundings with three pedestal seats and remains easily maneuverable. 

    Her enclosed bridge includes a raised lounge, complete with a state-of-the-art helm station, wet bar, entertainment system, and additional seating. A small space located aft includes live wells and food and bait freezers. A spiral staircase leads down to the main deck, which features a wide-open interior that is similar to larger Viking convertibles. A salon with L-shaped seating with a table is located aft, and the galley and dinette forward, with a day-head for convenience. The U-shaped galley completes the casual and formal dining area located opposite with wraparound seating. The galley features two refrigerator and freezer units and granite counters, and the salon includes a 50-inch pop-up TV.

    Her lower deck is also configurable with either a four or five-stateroom layout, including crew quarters with direct engine room access. Each stateroom includes an ensuite bathroom, while the owner’s suite offers king size bed and L-shaped lounge as it takes full advantage of the Viking 74 19′ 9″ beam. 

    Powered by twin MTU 16V2000 diesel engines, she has a cruising speed of 30 knots, with a top speed of close to 39 knots.
