The Viking 80' Convertible sleek styling showcases an impeccable sheer line with nine feet of freeboard forward tapering to slightly more than three feet at the stern, a lively reflection of the aggressive profiles of its recent brethren including the 92 and 62 Convertibles. The hull’s sharper entry merges with a higher forward chine designed to divert spray downward when ripping through head seas. Convex hull sections add curvature and form to the refined running surface, while a quad of molded running strakes accentuate lateral tracking and maneuverability. Tumblehome at the corners of the curved transom adds definition and beauty. Deadrise at the transom is 12.5 degrees and the beam is carried well aft providing exceptional volume, buoyancy and balance, a deft combination, which comfortably accommodates additional fuel, and the weight of a gyro stabilizer.
Mechanically, the 80 Convertible shares a commonality of technical features proven time and time again for reliability and practicality at the thousand fathom line and beyond.
The salon is a forest of satin walnut joinery and leather appointments, created by the team of the William Bales and Company. The 21 ft. 5 in. beam and the use of the vertical space is immediately apparent creating a free flowing movement with the ambiance of a great room. Inviting accommodations include five generously appointed staterooms, including a full beam master suite with a king size walk-around bed. Every stateroom has a large head and fiberglass shower stall. A washer and dryer are located in the companionway.
