The Viking 80 Enclosed Bridge Convertible has the handling of a fishing champion with the grace and luxury of a motor yacht. The interior layout has either five or six staterooms, and there is an interior teak staircase that leads from the main saloon up to the helm area in the air-conditioned bridge. The enclosed bridge means the driving and views can be enjoyed in a cool, comfortable environment, and the area equally makes a great lounge at night. There is a 40-inch flatscreen TV, refrigerator and bottle storage, so it’s the perfect place to host cocktail hour as well.
For those who want the best of both worlds – a protected, enclosed bridge with the option of feeling the seabreeze from the helm – Viking offers the custom Sky Bridge option. This custom option is designed and manufactured by the American yard. The Sky Bridge sits above the roof of the enclosed bridge, providing an open-air helm station and forward-facing lounge seat with indescribable views.
The nearly 24-square-metre cockpit is outfitted with everything the fisherman or woman will need. Sit in the fighting chair and pull in that grander, then retire to the stylish saloon and prepare the fresh catch at the spacious galley.
