Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show 10/8/2012  
In just a few short weeks, the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show gets under way at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center and once again the Viking Yacht Company will feature a huge and spectacular display of the world's best sportfishing convertible yachts from 42 to 82 feet.

Since 1964, Viking has used the Lauderdale venue for showcasing new models and this year's exposition is no different as the New Gretna, New Jersey, yacht manufacturer will premiere the Viking 55 Convertible. Launched in mid-summer, this will be the inaugural appearance of the exciting 55 Convertible, which already has earned rave reviews from the marine press. With twin V12 MAN 1550 CRM diesels, the 55 rips to a top speed of 41 knots. The three-stateroom, two-head layout provides a superb accommodation plan, and the 151 square-foot cockpit is packed with tournament mettle.

The 55 Convertible will be joined by 12 more Vikings comprising our complete line-up from the 42 Open to the flagship 82 Convertible. Also available for your personal viewing pleasure will be a 76 Open Bridge Convertible with MTU power; and a 70 Open Bridge and a 70 Enclosed Bridge Convertible, both with MTU power. Four Caterpillar powered Vikings will be on display including a pair of 66 Open Bridge Convertibles, and a 60 Open Bridge and a 60 Enclosed Bridge. In addition to the 55 Convertible debuting in Ft. Lauderdale, other MAN powered boats will be a 50 Convertible and a 46 Convertible. A 42 Convertible and a 42 Open each with Cummins diesels matched to the Zeus pod-drive propulsion system will round out the impressive Viking exhibit on D-dock, space 432.

Announcements also will be made by the Viking sales team concerning the new 92 Convertible and 72 Motor Yacht currently in development. In addition to the Viking sales team and our domestic and international dealer principals, representatives from Viking subsidiaries, Atlantic Marine Electronics, Palm Beach Towers and the Viking Yacht Service Center will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about their marine products and services.

The Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show opens on Thursday, October 25 for a five day run. If you would like to arrange a sea trial aboard any of these models, please contact your Viking dealer today as the schedule is filling up quickly. Hope to see you there.
