With even a cursory glance, the Viking 76 Convertible’s profile is reason to pause. The raked stem is aggressive and its mission becomes instantly obvious. Similarities to the 82 Convertible, like its dramatic sheer line, the flush foredeck and a pair of fixed port lights which match lines of the hull are sweeping design statements that merge form and function. The wrap around black metallic mask provides a distinctive and distinguished look, which accents the flowing lines of the flying bridge.

- Entered through an electrically powered sliding fiberglass door, the salon is a surround environment of lush teak joinery in a choice of satin or high gloss finish. For offshore convenience, a day head is immediately to port. Hand built furniture abounds port and starboard with an L-shaped lounge and rod stowage below, teak cabinetry, upholstery and window treatments, a teak cocktail table, wall-to-wall carpeting with lead-lined padding for acoustical insulation, a home theater center with a 50-inch flat screen television on a lift and a Bose Lifestyle 48 audio system. Two plans are currently in process, the basic difference found in the selection of the master suite. One layout offers the full beam master suite, while the alternate arrangement moves the master suite forward, to provide a crew stateroom aft with private access. Either arrangement provides five staterooms and four heads, and in both instances Viking’s attention to detail with regards to opulence, privacy, comfort and stowage is obvious. Forward, a dinette to starboard faces the island style galley to port. Featuring custom granite countertops, the galley with its 360-degree access is professionally designed with three bar stools, undercounter refrigeration and appliances, Amtico premium vinyl flooring and ample stowage. Additionally, two walk-in pantries forward of the dinette and galley provide bountiful stowage for supplies and cruising gear to stay at sea for months on end. Mechanically, the Viking 76 shares a commonality of features found aboard the flagship 82 Convertible. Chilled water air conditioning is built around an eight-ton system comprised of two four-ton units. The system allows individual thermostats for the staterooms and salon for climate management throughout the yacht. A reverse-cycle function provides heat as well. A hydraulic bow thruster is standard with convenient control buttons built into the stainless-steel single lever clutch and throttle handles. A Delta-T engine room ventilation system delivers maximum air for engine operation and also provides water intrusion suppression. Dampers are integrated into the hull side vents as part of the fire suppression system which automatically close to seal the engine compartment from outside air if activated. Viking’s proprietary VIPER (Viking Independent Programmable Electro-Hydraulic Rudder) steering system eliminates the tie-bar for independent rudder operation and it optimizes response and reduces drag at low, mid and high speeds for extraordinary maneuverability in all sea conditions. Viking’s industry famous web-frame structural steel engine beds mounted to transverse intermediate bulkheads ensure drive-train alignment and minimize vibrations for smooth trolling and comfortable high-speed performance. Veem Interceptor S class propellers are quiet and a perfect match for speed and efficient operation. Caterpillar and MTU diesels are offered as power choices and depending upon engine selection, the 76 Convertible will cruise in the mid 30-knot range with a top end approaching 40 knots, based on ambient factors, including sea state, load, bottom condition and other variables. Two 32 kW Onan generators are standard. The 76 Convertible also features a master electrical control system, the Moritz OctoPlex, which utilizes touch screen operation and monitors in the salon and on the flying bridge, as well as manual back-up.
- The 206 square-foot cockpit features Viking’s signature observation mezzanine with aft facing custom Sunbrella cushions. A hinged seat lid lifts to expose substantial stowage for gear. A bait freezer, a refrigerated chill box, a tackle center, an insulated stowage compartment and engineroom access are also built into mezzanine area. In the lower cockpit, there is a large drop in fishbox and a pair of drop in stowage compartments that can be configured as baitwells, icewells, or customized as desired. A transom mounted fishbox also is standard. Port and starboard Glendinning Cablemasters, sea and freshwater outlets, a dockside freshwater inlet, tag stick and gaff stowage also are provided.
