In a yacht market where listings are starting to become scarce, United Yacht Sales broker John Blumenthal landed the nicest (and newest) Viking 64 Convertible that's on the market today in the U.S. LAVISH PLEASURE is the 2009 Viking 64C that should be on your short list if you're in the market for a luxury sportfishing boat.
"Less than an hour after marketing team shared the walk-through video on social media, I had a call to schedule a showing," said John. "With this being a seller's market at the moment, I have no doubt that we will sell LAVISH PLEASURE quickly and for top dollar for my client." Blumenthal just recently closed on EURYBIA, a 2018 Jim Smith 60 Express.
LAVISH PLEASURE is currently located in North Miami, Florida and has an asking price of $2,250,000. If you'd like to schedule a showing on this Viking 64C, please contact John directly at 1-772-215-2571 or by email at John@UnitedYacht.com.
Viking Yachts has continued its dominance as the leader in semi-custom convertible sportfish with many boats of the same year and model being slightly different from the rest. Additionally, the continued upgrades of electronics, systems, and more, as well as the overall condition of the yacht, can really pay dividends when it comes to keeping the sales price high. LAVISH PLEASURE is the most expensive 64 Convertible on the market today, but it's also the newest and in top condition. This 64 Convertible has been captain-maintained since new and it shows.
Here is a list of just some of the notable upgrades since 2019:
- New Garmin 8612 GPS unit added in mezzanine wall
- New Garmin radar scanner
- All new fridge/freezer galley sub-zero gaskets
- Four new cockpit fridge/freezer compressors
- New cockpit, bow, and flybridge speakers
- New water-maker pump
- The entire engine room and motors have been spray painted
- Complete hull painted
- Teak transom clear coated
There are several other improvements made in the last two years. For the full list, please review the listing of this Viking 64.
The cockpit, like all Vikings, is designed and built for serious business. Made for serious bluewater offshore fishing tournaments, the cockpit on LAVISH PLEASURE has everything you need to compete or to just enjoy a day on the water fishing with friends. The custom teak deck, covering boards, and coaming create a rich look and feel, particularly after the latest clear coat. The Release Marine fighting chair is the focal point and is complete with rocket launcher, bait tray, and offset pedestal so the chair can be moved depending on where the battle takes the angler.
The mezzanine seating is a comfortable place to enjoy the action and no one does the mezzanine area better than Viking. The sofas are ultra-leather fabric, there is shade overtop from the flybridge overhang, there are multiple drink holders, and a refrigerated drink box.
Other cockpit features on this Viking 64 Convertible include:
- Refrigerated bait box
- Transom livewell with lights and a glass window
- Freezer storage under mezzanine seat
- Split lid for cockpit fish box with dividers
- Garmin 8612
- Ice machine that is plumbed to the cockpit sole box
The flybridge on LAVISH PLEASURE is a captain's dream with comfortable seating, great visibility of the cockpit, and all of the controls needed in an ergonomically-friendly helm design. "The great thing about the flybridge on this 64C is all of the seating," continued John. "Everyone has a place to sit and enjoy the view when riding out to the fishing grounds. There are two Release Marine teak helm chairs." And of course, the flybridge is outfitted with air conditioning, upgraded bolstered cushions, and a EZ2CY enclosure for your comfort.
The captain on board this 64C will appreciate these features:
- Large coffin freezer
- Refrigerated drink box
- Drop-Down overhead electronics box
- A remote for the Eskimo ice machine
- Double teaser reels overhead (Miya Epoch #8 and #9)
- Upgraded Triple Spreader Pipewelders Outriggers
The common living area in the interior of LAVISH PLEASURE is similar to most Vikings in that it has a spacious, open concept, and is bathed in high-gloss wood (teak and holly). As you walk through the electronic salon door, you are immediately greeted with a bright salon with multiple seating options. Portside is a large L-shaped sofa that has custom Dewberry storage hinges. There is a teak cocktail table, a Danby wine cooler, a 42" plasma television with BOSE Lifestyle System, and more teak accents throughout.
The galley consists of everything you need to keep your crew fed and happy during a multi-day tournament. Your supplies will be stored in four SubZero refrigeration drawers, two SubZero freezer drawers, and many cabinets for extra storage. Other features include granite countertops, Kenmore dishwasher, watermaker remote control, and bar stools near the galley island.
LAVISH PLEASURE features a four stateroom layout with the optional cross-over VIP stateroom placed forward. There are three heads including two that are en suite. The master suite features a queen-sized berth with upgraded #3 mattress, two night stands, and plenty of storage. The master bathroom has a granite countertop, beautiful accents, and lots of room.
The VIP cross-over arrangement has the queen berth placed starboard, while a single berth is portside. This allows for extra guests to come on board and have a place to sleep. There are orthopedic mattresses on both beds. The forward stateroom head is similar to the master. There are two additional starboard side staterooms that include over/under bunks in one, and side-by-side bunks in the other. The starboard mid and forward staterooms share a bathroom.
LAVISH PLEASURE's engine room is in incredible shape and very clean. The twin Cat C-32A 1,825HP engines are an upgrade from the standard power package and have just over 3,800 hours. There are two generators on board, one Onan 27.5kW and an additional Onan 21.5kW. Other equipment worth mentioning includes the Delta-T ventilation system, Sea Recovery 1,400gph watermaker, cockpit misters, and more.
