|Viking has led the industry in both sportfish and motor yacht design for 50-plus years, so it's no surprise that we've raised the boatbuilding bar again for luxury and seagoing excellence with the 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht, offered with either an open or enclosed bridge.
The Viking 82 CMY seamlessly transitions from an opulent cruiser to a blue-water yacht fisherman, creating the ideal platform for tournament fishing one day and heading on a three-week vacation the next. With the cockpit space of a large convertible, the 82 MY has the real estate you and your comrades will need to fish all day long. There's plenty of room for relaxing, too, in this versatile deck design that features an observation mezzanine and aft-deck dinette with U-shaped settee.
The nine-foot wide lounge molded into the mezzanine features a trove of useful amenities. Port and starboard stowage compartments serve as tackle and gear wells. An engineroom access door is built into the mezzanine backrest. A companionway leads into the crew quarters. Chill boxes for drinks and bait are located in the port and starboard staircases. A molded transom fishbox doubles as a convenient stowage bin for masks, fins and other gear. A walk-through transom door with a lift gate complements the molded teak-planked swim platform.
On the main deck, styling merges with sociability. Forward and aft deck lounges capture the outdoor spirit. Inside the yacht, eight tons of chilled-water air conditioning provide a climate-controlled environment where a lavish walnut salon, formal and casual dining areas, and a world-class galley set a festive mood. Engineered-stone countertops, under-counter refrigerator (2) and freezer (1) units, high-gloss walnut cabinetry and a starboard-side pantry are some of the standard amenities in the low-profile open galley. We also offer a closed galley design.
Below, four stunningly appointed staterooms illustrate Viking’s ability to balance elegance and practicality. A king bed anchors the full-beam master suite, and natural light streams in through the large hull-side windows. Smart storage solutions, such as twin maple-lined hanging closets and drawers under the bed, can be found throughout. A 49-inch HD TV faces the berth. The master head includes a walnut-faced vanity with an engineered-stone counter and twin sinks; a separate shower with a glass door and satin nickel fixtures; and linen storage. Each of the three guest staterooms has a private head with walk-in shower. The forward VIP has a queen walk-around berth and a foredeck skylight with hatch and an Ocean Air screen shade system.
The open bridge layout is all about the great outdoors with a centerline helm forward flanked with casual seating areas. Abaft the helm, a family size dinette, and a wet bar with refrigeration, a sink and an electric grill get the party started. Farther aft there is a sun pad, room for lounge chairs, and a teak planked staircase to the lower after deck. The climate-controlled enclosed bridge gives you the convenience of a second salon, with plush seating and an entertainment center, and the utility of an upper command station with full weather protection. A sliding glass door opens to the aft deck with available lounges and a wet bar.
Outfitted with custom designed navigation and entertainment systems provided by Viking's subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics, the 82 CMY can be delivered turnkey ready. This new Viking motor yacht awaits your inspection and command. We encourage you to contact your Viking dealer for more information about these exciting additions to the Viking fleet.
