Just two weeks after UYS broker John Blumenthal listed the Viking 64 Convertible 'LAVISH PLEASURE' for sale, United Yacht Sales is proud to announce that 'HUMDINGER', a 2018 Viking Yachts 80 Enclosed Bridge, has been added to the market just in time for Spring by Greg Graham. "I'm excited to have the HUMDINGER listed for sale and don't expect it to last long on the market," said Greg. "The way boats are selling right now in this environment, with the excellent condition that it's in, and with the global reach of United's marketing efforts, we expect this Viking 80 to sell before summer." Greg also recently sold "MOLLIE K", a Viking 60C, and "WEHR NUTS", a Viking 64C.
For more than 20 years, Viking Yachts has been at the pinnacle of the industry for the production of large convertible and enclosed bridge sport fishing yachts. The Viking 80EB represents the very best of what the New Gretna shipyard has to offer for the bluewater angler that wants to compete in serious offshore tournaments. Built by a very knowledgeable owner, HUMDINGER has raised many fish and no expense was spared in maintaining her for the last 3 years. With similar replacement vessels being two years or more out, HUMDINGER is an excellent opportunity. It's current asking price is $7,700,000 and she can easily be toured in Key Largo, Florida. For more information, contact Greg Graham at 1-305-522-4739.
Designed and constructed with the best quality materials, HUMDINGER is capable of fishing anywhere in the world. Every Viking features the very best in equipment, electronics, and interior accommodations. There is no doubt that the Viking 80 gives you and your team a competitive advantage in tournaments. The MTU V16 M96L 2,635HP engines will leave your competition in your wake. They have low hours and are under warrant through 12-21-22 or at 3,400 hours. Currently they have 1,728 hours and the warranty can be extended.
HUMDINGER also features the Seakeeper 35 Gyro Stabilization System, the biggest Seakeeper possible for an 80-foot yacht. HUMDINGER can reach speeds over 40 knots and cruises comfortably in the high 30 knot range. An optional fourth fuel tank has also been added for extra range.
The cockpit is bathed in beautiful teak that is in excellent condition. The fighting cockpit measures a whopping 216 square feet and is loaded down with features that will impress the most discerning fisherman. The air-conditioned mezzanine offers a comfortable place to watch the action unfold and is slightly shaded from the bridge overhang. Some of the fishing features found on the cockpit of this Viking 80 include:
- Transom door for pulling in big fish on to the cockpit deck
- Live-well in transom box and in the deck
- Recessed in-deck fish box
- Release Trillion teak fighting chair
- Upgraded teak aft bridge helm pod
Whether fighting Marlin or watching the action in total comfort, the cockpit on HUMDINGER is designed to accommodate everyone that wants to be a part of the action. Your crew will appreciate the extra space to move around while fighting a fish.
The custom Palm Beach Tower is everything you'd expect from the Viking subsidiary company that is world-renowned for their towers. The tower helm station offers incredible elevated views to spot birds, moving fish, or weed lines. The captain will enjoy the complete set of communication and navigation equipment on the tower, including the single-lever controls.
The enclosed bridge (seen above) offers a climate-controlled interior living space high above the water. The views are extraordinary and my owners use this space for entertaining. There is a 5-6 person sofa portside along with a high-gloss coffee table. The upper helm station in the bridge features a STIDD captain's chair in front of a clean, well-organized control center. There has been more than $300,000 spent on the premium electronics package giving the owner another advantage during tournaments. Additional STIDD chairs around the helm provide extra seating for guests who want to ride in the bridge during the trip out to the fishing grounds.
Heading through the salon door, you're immediately greeted by a beautiful living area that is bathed in high-gloss Walnut. Whether retreating from the sun or entertaining guests back at the dock, the salon on HUMDINGER offers an amazing layout that is full of space, seating, and incredible views. The galley has everything needed, including ample storage, to feed a hungry crew. The salon seating and dining area adjacent to the galley are great socializing areas, as is the raised bar with stools.
The salon flat screen television (seen above) is subtly hidden in the cabinetry and is electronically raised. The U-shaped leather couch offers an excellent spot to watch a movie after a long day fishing in the sun. The staircase to the upper enclosed bridge is found aft and starboard.
Accommodations on HUMDINGER, include a 5-stateroom layout, plus crew, that features a master suite (seen above) that stretches the full beam of the boat. It has a king-sized berth with nightstands on both sides and an abundance of closet space. Each stateroom has its own bathroom complete with full-sized shower stall. All of the mattresses and soft goods on HUMDINGER are upgraded. The VIP suite is nearly as nice as the master and features an island queen-sized berth.
The engine room (seen above) is clean and well-maintained. The generators on HUMDINGER have been upgraded to 34kW Phasors which keep all of the equipment and electronics running on board. There is a 1,800GPD Dometic water-maker, as well as an upgraded fuel conditioning system. All of HUMDINGER's service records have been kept by its original owner and are available.
