If you’re an avid fisherman, then the Viking Enclosed Bridge Convertible 66 is right up your alley! It offers comfort with fishing in mind since its enclosed bridge protects against other elements as you sail to fishing grounds. The air-conditioned bridge is luxurious with its leather appointments, a sleek cocktail table, a built-in refrigerator, and a flatscreen TV, making it the more comfortable lounge area to relax in after a day of fishing.
The main helm is positioned for good visibility as it’s built forward on the centerline. You can easily read and operate navigation and communication systems located on a raised, ultra-leather dashboard. An adjustable Stidd helm seat can be found in the area to provide comfort and support during long jaunts, along with large companion seats featuring drawer stowage and more visibility for crew and guests. The Enclosed Bridge Convertible 66 also includes Viking’s signature spiral staircase that weaves up from the saloon to the enclosed bridge and has a covered mezzanine aft for safe viewing in the cockpit below.
The Viking Enclosed Bridge Convertible 66 is equipped for overnight fishing trips in many ways. Inside are four staterooms with their own head and private bathrooms for a total of eight guests. As a Viking sportfishing yacht, this model is outfitted with flush rod holders, an in-transom fish bow, and plentiful stowage lockers.
