Viking 80 Enclosed Bridge
Like all Viking Yachts, the 80 Skybridge model hones its blue-water DNA from its stablemates. The sleek styling showcases an impeccable sheer line with nine feet of freeboard forward tapering to slightly more than three feet at the stern, a lively reflection of the aggressive profiles of its recent brethren including the 92 and 62 Convertibles. The hull’s sharper entry merges with a higher forward chine designed to divert spray downward when ripping through head seas. Convex hull sections add curvature and form to the refined running surface, while a quad of molded running strakes accentuates lateral tracking and maneuverability. Tumblehome at the corners of the curved transom adds definition and beauty. Deadrise at the transom is 12.5 degrees and the beam is carried well aft providing exceptional volume, buoyancy and balance, a deft combination, which comfortably accommodates additional fuel, and the weight of a gyro stabilizer.
Inviting accommodations of the Viking 80 Enclosed Bridge include five generously appointed staterooms, including a full beam master suite with a king size walk-around bed. The port and forward staterooms have walk-around queen beds. The two starboard staterooms have upper and lower berths, and are surprisingly spacious thanks to the use of sliding entrance doors which maximize interior space.

Made for Anglers Eager to Adventure
Viking has led the charge in the design, development and production of the biggest convertible sportfishing yachts for more than 20 years. Recognized around the world for quality and performance, Viking is often imitated, but never challenged where it counts out in the deep, on the tournament trail, or in the Winner’s Circle. This propensity for ongoing development is the root for building a better boat every day. The 216 square-foot cockpit is equipped for tournament fishing with a transom door, freezer, tackle, and general stowage space, live well capacity, fish wells, an ice chest and a chill box for drinks. But some subtle touches also show that the Viking team never stops sweating the details to make things better. A lengthy list of standard equipment includes a hydraulic bow thruster, a centralize seawater system, dual freshwater pumps, Veem S-class propellers, two 29 kW Onan generators, two Glendinning Cablemasters, Charles PM 100 shore power cord combiner and isolation transformer, and an Octoplex touch screen electrical distribution panel with monitors in the salon and on the flying bridge with manual back-up.
The base of the cockpit compartments, for example, are floating, which leaves room for a toe kick for easier access when opening the lids in a sea way. Another neat idea is that the mezzanine gently folds outward at each end making more foot space available in the cockpit. Finally, the 80 Convertible is prepped at the factory for the installation of the M26 Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, either on the production line or at a later date.
