Viking 72-671 Build Update

Viking 72-671 Build Update

By Kimberly Smith   April 17, 2024

Following the completion of HMY’s 68-055, 72-671 (Hull #71) will be completed in mid-June. 72-671 is a 72 Convertible Open Bridge with a Nardo Grey Gelcoat Hull Color. The 72’s power is apparent on the hard as she is being prepped for her custom gap tower from Palm Beach Towers. Powered by the ever-popular MTU 16V2000 M96Ls rated at 2635MHP a piece, along with a CJR running gear package and black widow bottom paint, this hull can be expected to cruise in the high 30-knot range, and with a WOT speed into the low 40s.  

To manage the power in close quarters, HMY decided to option 72-671 with a hydraulic bow thruster, which is becoming more popular among captains who are running larger Viking Convertibles. On each stock Viking, HMY works with AME (Atlantic Marine Electronics) to pick the best electronics package for that model and tries to specify one with the latest electronics in the industry. For 72-671, HMY and AME chose items such as three Seatronix 19” MFD (Multi-Functional Displays) at the helm, a control for the optional Furuno Omni Sonar system under the helm and an additional Garmin 8612 MFD overhead in the powered actuated drop-down radio box. The décor onboard 72-671 will be no exception; with a combination of Greys and Whites throughout, the décor is designed to continue the grey color scheme based on the exterior gelcoat hull color, but help the boat stay light.
