PowerBoat Guide Review: “Magnificent” describes the Viking 82 Convertible, a world-class sportfishing yacht from one of America’s most respected builders. Sporting a more dramatic sheer than previous Viking convertibles and offered with an open or enclosed bridge, the massive cockpit of the Viking 82 delivers just over 250 square feet of working space. An observation mezzanine houses bait freezers, freezer, rigging station, drink box, etc., and the open flybridge features a center helm console with electronic engine controls and wraparound lounge seating forward. The 82’s broad 22’4″ beam allows a salon of impressive proportions with hand-finished teak joinery and granite counters throughout. A companionway to port leads to four staterooms plus private crew quarters below including an opulent amidships master with king-size bed, walk-in closets, settee and dressing table. Note the salon day head next to the sliding electric salon door, and the big engine room hatch. Constructed on a modified-V hull with deep prop pockets and underwater exhausts, MTU 16V2000 2400hp diesels cruise at 32 knots (mid to high 30s top).
“The curved transom makes the 82 easy to back down. It’s one of a number of styling cues that set the 82 apart from other Vikings and foreshadow what we’ll see in future models.”
–Power & Motoryacht
