ON DISPLAY DURING MIAMI YACHT SHOW FEBRUARY 13-17, 2020
2017 VIKING 72’ CONVERTIBLE DITCH DIGGER was commissioned by a family with multiple new boat builds under their belt. Liberal use of granite, custom appointments, along with upgraded wallpaper, fabrics, and soft good materials, blend to make her a one of a kind masterpiece. This VIKING 72 has been professionally maintained by a full time crew and serviced by VIKING and MTU exclusively. 2017 VIKING 72’ CONVERTIBLE DITCH DIGGER is seriously for sale now as the owner's new VIKING is coming shortly.
The layout of the 72 VIKING convertible is the envy of the industry. She features a four stateroom, four head layout below, with an extremely functional galley/dinette/salon on the main deck and a handy day head aft in the salon. Some highlights include access to the crew stateroom through the engine room, large pantry storage, walk around galley counter, concealed laundry center, a pullman berth in the guest bunk stateroom, mirrored ceilings in the heads, full salon, and companionway runners, and custom burl wood tables in the salon and at the dinette.
