The Viking 66: Yes, another winner for the New Jersey builder, and perhaps the company’s most beautiful convertible yet, with more freeboard forward, a steeply raked windshield, and absolutely no sharp edges. But have no doubts: This beauty is a pure battlewagon, designed to go fast and catch fish. The Viking 66 has a totally new hull; the company’s first that’s completely infused, and it’s much flatter aft, with only 11 degrees deadrise. With optional twin 2,000-horsepower MTUs, top speed is 42 knots. As one of our editorial judges remarked, “This may be the best boat I ran in this category in 25 years.”
An epic introduction at the yard brought the eyes of the boating world to the MCY 80. The latest launch from this builder brings style and sophistication in a gleaming package.
