SIMPLICITY was refit with an open check book approach. This was not only a cosmetic refit but included machinery, hotel systems furniture and electronics. First impressions suggest that this classic US built motoryacht has nothing in common with any other Viking 72.

Vessel Overview


SIMPLICITY is a classic flush deck motor yacht that combines pilothouse, galley, day head, salon and aft deck all on the same level.  The original Viking design separated the galley from the main salon; the aft bulkhead has been removed and it is now an open, fully modern space will all new stainless galley appliances.  All cabinetry has been replaced and upgraded.  The lower deck includes four staterooms: owner’s stateroom is aft with its own stairway and is nothing short of grand.  

Entering SERENITY from either of the two pilothouse doors, the upgraded electronics package, woodwork and fabrics in the pilothouse is immediately evident. Proceeding aft, the salon / galley space is stunning in a moderate contemporary style with a nice blend of wood and fabrics. The color scheme is neutral, the impression is one of elegant and refined good taste. What was originally a constricted space with a narrow galley is now wide open The aft deck is furnished with high quality exterior furniture, it may bethe most inviting and popular space on the yacht.  From the aft deck the cockpit is a few steps down. This space serves as a beach club with excellent access the water.  

Fly Bridge

The fly bridge is accessed via a stairway from the salon. Originally the access was up a ladder which was common on these yachts in the 90s. The ladder was removed and a stairway was installed. Seating is plentiful around a built-in settee and table. With the tender launched, lounge chairs are easily positioned in that space. The upper command station has three Captain's chairs, new electronics and 360 degree visibility for easy operations. Space for a tender is aft on the bridge deck and launching with the davit is straight-forward. Space also allows for one jet ski.  With a little reconfiguration one could also add a hot tub.
