Precious few boatbuilders lay claim to the kind of success enjoyed by Viking since the Healey brothers purchased the company from Petersen-Viking Yachts back in 1964. They reached a high level of success by consistently making significant improvements to each successive design, rather than simply filling size gaps in their lineup. True to this tradition, the company's new 60-foot convertible incorporates all of the proven Viking innovations, while moving forward to set new benchmarks in performance and style.
Borrowing a page from the megayacht playbook, Viking now allows you to transfer fuel from one tank to the other from the flybridge helm station. Not only a convenience for long ocean crossings, shifting fuel from the aft tank forward allows you to make up about five inches of draft - a real boon in some shallow-water slips in the Keys, Bahamas and elsewhere.
One thing Viking now does on every new boat is fine-tune the props quickly and inexpensively to optimize performance. Historically, getting the right prop for a boat involved equal parts science and voodoo. Builders just kept changing props until the right rpms and loads were reached. It often took weeks.
Now, thanks to a company called Veem Propellers, anyone can adjust the pitch of their props by sliding in a composite strip along the prop's edge, without having to haul out. This also works terrifically for those who take their boats on long cruises - like down to the islands or over to Mexico. You can adjust your prop for all the added weight you have to carry on the crossing and then readjust for optimum fishing performance.
As you'd expect, this 60 sports a mezzanine in the cockpit - perfect for watching the baits in high style and comfort. However, I did find it a bit of a chore to access the engine compartment through the mezzanine since you need to lift the seat back and remove the seat cushion before lifting the hatch.
A refrigerated box does away with any on-deck portable coolers. You can carry a day's worth of rigged baits in several layers. I never understood spending millions on a fancy boat and still needing an ugly cooler sliding around the cockpit.
Customers dictate the cockpit layout, and chose the placement and position of livewells, fish boxes, refrigerators, freezers, barbecue grills and so on. And you'll find plenty of room for all of it - this cockpit can accommodate a game of half-court basketball.
Viking really excels at the effective use of what could be considered dead space on most boats. In places that you can't even access on many boats (such as under side walkways), Viking provides stowage for gaffs, mops, wet chamoises and other cockpit necessities.
