This 2019 68 Viking Convertible is offered by Galati Yacht Sales in Destin, FL. When viewing Lyon's Pride, several phrases come to mind: truly astounding, dialed in to the highest degree, a pleasure to show, better than new, how a sportfish vessel of this magnitude should look and be maintained. The latest addition to Viking’s convertible fleet, this one being an October 2018 delivery, the 68 is a true crowd pleaser at all levels. It offers the smoothest, quietest and driest of rides in the Viking family.
Propelled with MTU 12V 2000 M96L’s, Lyon's Pride offers a comfortable 34-knot cruise and 40-knot barrier top end. The true attraction of the 68 still lies within its spacious salon with raised dinette and open galley island arrangement. View the pop-up TV to starboard from any vantage point or the second TV mounted above the dinette, finished and trimmed in solid walnut. The large walk-in pantry forward of the galley is a favorite for all who view the vessel. Her accommodations below offer a 4 stateroom, 4 head arrangement, of which the generous crews’ quarters accesses the engine room aft.
After leaving VYSC, an additional Seakeeper was added in October 2019. There is an optional second Octoplex control system located in that stateroom for convenience of captain or crew to control any system on the vessel. Lyon’s Pride, with the latest in build and technology, boasts all the benefits of a production vessel built with the design and look of a custom convertible sportfish. Lyon’s Pride is sure to please and has everything in its build that one would need in a tournament rigged vessel, including custom tuna tubes and sonar. Owner has had a change in his current plans allowing for this very special opportunity.
