Viking 82'

I realize this is not the largest sportfisherman, but I thought they were cool pics. The last picture is of a 64' versus the 82'. I know it may be hard to tell but the 64' is on the right.

Rampage,

These posts have been moved to the Viking forums. The last pic was accidentally deleted while re-sizing. If you want to add it again, feel free, but keep images under 640 pixels.

It looks like these shots were taken at the Port of Palm Beach (aka Lake Worth Inlet)... ?

The bridge of the 64' is as high as the bow of the 82'

Rampage,

I re-sized the pic for you. Please adhere to our image size rules; no larger than 640 pixels in width.

Thanks.

This picture reminds me of when I brought a client's 68 Sunseeker down to Lauderdale. I kept warning him that his boat was going to shrink (On Long Island it was an eye catcher). We pulled through the 17th St bridge and saw another Sunseeker. He asked if it was a 60 and I had to tell him that no it's about an 80.

I was out fishing the day those pics were taken- I was the only boat out beside the Viking 82. I drive the 65 Donzi "Sea Deuce" that the from the floating dock are taken from- yes it was Lake Worth inlet- Sailfish Marina, the charter dock to be precise. It was "Donzi" weather that day as several of us Donzi captains jokingly call it. I stayed out for an hour- the Viking came in after less than an hour- but I doubt they were fishing- I'm sure they went on a rough seas sea trial as many folks were on the boat including Pat Healy if my vision was not fooling me. The 82's bow is a monster- much larger than the 74. I have not been aboard yet, but it certainly looks like an impressive vessel.

The smaller SF in front of the 82' really looks like a 61' Viking to me. I am almost positive of it. The 64' has different lines on the side of the house

And why WOULD we trust the guy who was there taking the pictures anyhow?

Because I ran a 2006 61 Viking SF, that looked EXACTLY like that one and there is a good chance that is the boat. Teak Transom, stbd side bridge ladder, same tower, mezzanine deck, same color. They did away with that ledge/angle a foot underneath the house windows on the sides of the house and the bow is higher on a 64. I may be mistaken though. But that really looks like the older 61. They made the boat sleeker and took away the hard angles of the 61 so it looks similar to the 82' and others.......

I didn't take the pictures so I don't disagree. Actually after further analysis the 61 has more of a curve in its bow and this has that slight curve.
