Why the Enclosed Bridge Viking 80 is an authentic fishing yacht

The Viking 80 is an unmistakable fishing machine and one of the best motor boats produced by the American shipyard Viking. This model, designed in-house by Viking’s Design and Engineering Department, is unparalleled in terms of fishing, luxury, and adventure. This sports motor yacht offers the ideal combination of both worlds, combining the enhanced visibility of an open model with the weather protection and comfort of a Viking enclosed bridge yacht. Sharing many of the characteristics and features of the Viking 80 convertible flybridge model, including a sleek low-profile console with an optional raised teak helm pod, flanking radio boxes with split lids, and a large recessed and protected area for multi-function displays, engine and steering controls, and electronics controllers, the enclosed bridge has gained popularity in recent years. FGI Yacht Group is currently offering for sale a pristine Viking 80, the ideal vessel for a family fishing trip over the weekend.

In 2017, the Viking 80 enclosed flybridge motor yacht was delivered to her original owners and is still in impeccable condition. She is 80 feet long (24.38 meters) and has a composite hull with a beam of 21′ 4″ (6.5m) and a draft of 1′ 7″ Her streamlined design is influenced by the aggressive profile of her sister models, the Viking 92 and 62, which feature a sharp hull and a higher forward bow. Her interior layout features four staterooms that can accommodate up to eight overnight guests in the utmost luxury, making it ideal for spending time with family and friends while exploring the Caribbean.

This includes her main saloon, which features a seating area, a galley with a sit-down bar, and an informal dining area opposite the galley and her skybridge. Designed for tournament and deep-sea anglers, the skybridge enhances her fishing potential by housing a power-operated drop-down electronics box and a teaser reel box. The skybridge offers ample seating and additional amenities, including a forward insulated cooler and freshwater sink, as well as storage under the lounges and within the console.

Enclosed on the flybridge is the primary helm station, which features a state-of-the-art center console command station with optimal views while underway. The enclosed flybridge’s climate-controlled air conditioning and U-shaped sofa with table make it ideal for socializing.

Her inviting accommodations are located on the lower deck and include a master suite with a walk-around king-size bed. The port and forward ensuite staterooms are furnished with queen walk-around beds.
