The 2021 80 Viking Yacht Convertible's 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. 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.
Mechanically, the 80 Convertible shares a commonality of technical features proven time and time again for reliability and practicality at the thousand-fathom line and beyond.
The salon is a forest of satin walnut joinery and leather appointments, created by the team of the William Bales and Company. The 21 ft. 5 in. beam and the use of the vertical space is immediately apparent creating a free-flowing movement with the ambiance of a great room. Inviting accommodations include five generously appointed staterooms, including a full-beam master suite with a king-size walk-around bed. Every stateroom has a large head and fiberglass shower stall. A washer and dryer are located in the companionway.
