Well-Designed Engine Rooms, by Capt. Richard Thiel (continued)
Viking 74 Motoryacht
The Boat: The builder’s only motoryacht, and not surprisingly, Viking employed many of the same strategies it uses in its sportfish line.
The ER Design : Finished in brilliant white, even on the saddle tanks and CATs, the 74’s ER is accented by a wide, uncluttered walkway covered with black non-slip flooring. It’s elevated to enhance engine access, and beneath are two crash-pump valves. Lighting is recessed, and the ventilation system employs fans and demisters. An aft bulkhead separates the gensets from the main space.
