IZTAC a 2003 Viking Sport Fishing Yacht that is new to the market and for sale in San Diego, CA This vessel is professionally managed by one of the best in the industry. Viking Yachts has, embarked on a journey into truly advanced technology, design and construction. Each new model employs refinements gleaned from the last model. So to say that each new boat Viking builds is the best it's ever built is no exaggeration. The company's goal is perfection, and although there's never been a perfect boat, Viking gets a little closer with each new model.
The 65's entire hull is end-grain balsa composite. Even the stringers are now foam filled except under the engines. Amazingly, the new 65's hull weighs a scant 1,000 pounds heavier than the Viking 58s. Styling has changed a bit. You'll see more crown on the foredeck and flybridge, fewer sharp corners and more soft, radius turns. Frameless windows even have a crown in them to soften the lines.

This is truly an amazing Yacht with lots of equipment ready for any expedition or leisurely cruise for additional information on this 2003 Viking Yacht Sport Fisher Convertible or to set up a showing please feel free to contact the listing agent at any time day or night.  This Viking 65 Convertible Sport Fisher Yacht is similar to the Hatteras , Mickelson , Titan Tournament , Donzi , Miller Custom , Newport Offshore , Roscioli , Bertram , Merritt , Nordlund Tribute , Jim Smith , Buddy Davis , McKinna , Ocean Yachts Super Sport , Elliott , Norseman , Ocean Convertible , Rybovich , Striker Sportfish , Blackwell

    Air-conditioning evaporators have been moved from the bridge, where most builders put them, to down inside the boat. This freed up a ton of space for additional rod storage on the flybridge. A big refrigerated drink box assures you'll only need to make one beverage trip per day to your belowdecks storage.
    I like several noteworthy features about this flybridge. First, you could get everyone aboard seated topside for evening harbor cruises and still not be crowded. Second, the helm has plenty of room behind it to move across the bridge to the guest helm seat. Third, a Plexiglas insert in the forward flybridge coaming affords the helmsman a wonderfully clear view of the bow for anchoring and docking.

Engine Room

Engine Room
The Viking 65 not only provides ample width through the cockpit access hatch but full standing headroom in the compartment. The extra cabin between the engine room and the master stateroom provides a healthy noise buffer.
As in the cockpit, the word stark comes to mind in the engine room. Systems that need frequent maintenance are positioned conveniently, as are all switches. Additionally, you'll find plenty of storage space for tools and spares.

Viking's Performance

Fore and aft vision for the helmsman is the best you'll find anywhere on this size boat, thanks to the placement of the helm and the notched cutout in the flybridge coaming forward.
The wheel turns like silk; you'll experience an immediate response, and small, incremental course changes can be accomplished remarkably quickly. However, turn the wheel hard over and the 65 banks gently, scribing a large arc that doesn't decrease your speed.
Backing down at 6.5 knots in total control, I couldn't get any water at all to enter the cockpit through the scuppers, tuna door or over the cap rail. Looking at the scupper from the inside, I have no doubt that any water that might gather in the cockpit wouldn't be there for very long.
To make a boat this size go fast takes impressive power. Our test boat packed twin 16-cylinder, 2000 series DDC/MTUs into the engine compartment. Each engine produces 1,800 hp at the peak of the torque curve. Top speed according to two GPS units proved an impressive 39 knots. But a far more economical 34-knot cruising speed seemed very comfortable while still cooking right along. Looking from alongside, the 65 appears to run with a very modest bow inclination. But as with most high-speed large convertibles, there's actually a fair bit of hull lifting out of the water. At cruising speed, the ocean meets the hull right about amidships.
