When you step inside the cockpit of the 65 Viking "Engage", you quickly realize the level of vessel you are aboard. The cockpit is huge with a raised mezzanine seating area and observation deck overlooking the fighting chair and tournament rigged cockpit. There is engine room access from the center line forward hatch, salon access to stbd through an electric sliding door and flybridge access from the stbd side ladder. For shade and sun protection the cockpit has a custom made aluminum frame sun shade.
Entering the salon you get a great feeling of space thanks to her wide beam. There is a U shaped sofa to port with storage beneath and a large ottoman also with great storage beneath. Across the salon, "Engage" has a custom wine chiller added. Unlike most Vikings of her vintage, the interior high gloss teak wood is in excellent shape. Her color tones are neutral with a great deal of natural light from the large salon windows.
One small step up from the salon is the galley and dinette level. The galley is to port and features everything a shipboard gourmet would require for dinners aboard. She has a full-sized refrigerator freezer, great counter space, ample storage and a walk-in pantry! The U-shaped dinette is right across the galley to stbd. She has a high gloss teak dining table with a plastic protective cover to save the wear and tear. Above the dinette on the fwd bulkhead is a large flat screen TV.
At the top of the staircase leading down to the lower accommodations there is the walk-in pantry to port and a walk-in laundry room to starboard.
At the base of the stairwell, we have the first of three heads immediately to stbd. There is both hallway day head access and stbd guest bunk room access. Just forward of the head is the bunk bed guest stateroom. This guest room has private climate controls and a high gloss teak hanging locker.
Across the hallway to port is the master stateroom. It is certainly worthy of the description as an owner’s suite. In addition to the island king size berth, it features an en-suite head and a sunken private lounge. The versatile lounge has a fixed desk, large closet, a sofa, bookshelf and flat screen TV.
In the forepeak of "ENGAGE", is the third and final VIP stateroom. The bunk arrangement has a lower port side berth and an elevated stbd side berth. Both berths have storage beneath. Additional features include a cedar lined hanging locker, private climate controls, high gloss teak woodwork, a flat screen TV and natural light provided by an overhead hatch.
Back up in the cockpit, the stbd ladder will take us up to the large flybridge. Flybridge highlights include:
- STIDD helm and companion chair
- Aft bridge rail with rod holders
- Large bench seat to stbd
- L shaped seating in front of the helm
- Deep refrigerated drink box - fwd of helm
- Deep freezer - fwd of helm
- Air-conditioned fly bridge (no isinglass enclosure presently)
- Updated Furuno Chart Plotter (other electronics are original, dated or non-operational)
Engine room access is easy through the centerline cockpit door and hatch. In 2023, both MTU main engines were rebuilt with sea trials and testing completed summer of 23'; Details and paperwork can be supplied. She has a single ONAN 17 KW gen set to port. A second smaller back up generator was removed at some point in the past. There is room to add a second generator if anyone ever wanted to. (Plumbing and wiring exist)

Viking Yachts has become a global leader in the luxury sportfish and motor yacht industry.
Founded in the early 1960’s by Bob and Bill Healey, Viking built its vessels much like Carolina builders, assembling the boats on frames at intervals throughout the manufacturing facility. By 1972 they were already working on the first all-fiberglass model, the Viking 33C, and building their way into history as one of the finest yachting brands in the world. Viking quickly grew into a major U.S.-based yacht builder and leader in its industry in less than a decade. In the 80’s Viking acquired Gulfstar Yachts in Florida, whose designs were considered by many to be some of the best in the industry and incorporated some new innovations furthering their place in the industry. Re-investing with their own money in the early ’90s, the brand has been on top of the world ever since.
From a 38-foot sportfishing boat to 93-foot motor yachts with semi-custom fiberglass, advanced flybridges, tuna towers, and impressive outriggers, Viking yachts carry a tradition of excellence, innovative technology, and family history. Most Viking Yachts models are manufactured in-house to ensure maximum attention to detail and impeccable quality control in every sport yacht, open bridge convertible, enclosed bridge convertible, billfish, and the open series yacht that is produced.
