The Viking 70 Convertible shares a family resemblance with the larger Viking 76 and 82, and she is also an able performer like her larger brethren. She has an aggressively raked stem and cuts through the waves with ease. The 70C utilises Viking’s proprietary VIPER (Viking Independent Programmable Electro-hydraulic Rudder) steering, which reduces rudder drag at all throttle settings for excellent handling.
The saloon is inviting, appointed with designer furnishings, and fishing rods and gear can be stored beneath the L-shaped couch, which faces a 50-inch flatscreen TV. The galley has granite countertops, under-counter refrigeration, three bar stools and is adjacent to a dining area that seats four guests. The day’s catch of fresh fish can be prepared and enjoyed in this beautiful, air-conditioned space. The four-stateroom, four-bathroom layout includes a spacious master suite, and in addition to the accommodation for owner and guests is a private crew quarters.
