The Viking 72 Enclosed Bridge Convertible (72’8″ LOA, 20′ beam) is a replacement for the veritable classic Viking 70 Convertible and offers the sleek profile and tempting raked stance of its new generation siblings with an aggressive entry designed for offshore runs through head seas. Structurally, the resin-infused hull includes Baltek end-grain balsa and Airex foam cores with carbon and E-glass hybrid fiberglass laminates. Also offered with an Open Bridge, the 72 is roomy and fashionably equipped. The four-stateroom, five-head layout also includes private access for the crew. The flybridge features a center console helm station outfitted with the VIPER steering system, and the 209-square-foot cockpit with an observation mezzanine is tournament proven. Powered by twin MTU Series 2000 V16 M96L diesel engines, the 72 Convertible runs to a top speed of 45 knots and cruises at 36.3 knots for a 306-nm range. vikingyachts.com
