If you consider yourself a classic yachtsman, your family will love the Viking 61's interior. Teak varnished to a high gloss simply cannot be beat. As you enter through the cockpit automatic door you are welcomed by theu00a0spacious main saloon that features a C-shaped sofa in the aft port corner that will seat six to eight people in great comfort around a hilo table, a U-shaped galley to port forward, a dinette for four people to starboard (directly opposite the galley for ease of serving meals), and a stunning sweep of low lockers in the starboard aft corner.

The galley has multiple Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezers under granite countertops. Thereu2019s still loads of stowage left over below, some of which may be given over to Miele dishwasers, trash compactors, and stoves. Deep under-mount stainless steel sinks, perfect for stashing coffeemakers in a seaway or soaking a bouillabaisse pot after dinner, are standard, as is a microwave/convection oven and an electric range. Overhead lockers on the forward bulkhead are abundant.

Belowdecks, the 61's biggest gains in the master stateroom. It has a king-size berth and a cross-bulkhead hanging locker that's thoughtfully positioned to shield sound from the machinery space. The standard three stateroom/three head arrangement is the preferred choice.u00a0

Cockpit / Fishing / Crusing

The 61's 170-square-foot cockpit is uncluttered and businesslike. A freezer, a drink box, a tackle center, a sink and engineroom access are hidden neatly in the molded-in bulkhead console. A 53-by-20-by-20-inch fish/stowage box is recessed in the sole and flanked by twin stowage wells that can be converted to live wells. Fresh- and saltwater washdowns are fitted, and Glendinning Cablemasters (port and starboard) allow easy shoreside hookups without snaking shore cords about the cockpit.Mezzanine cockpit seating

Exterior / Ground Tackle

While the 61's styling and exterior are groomed to tournament standards, her interior layout is generous compared with many custom offerings. This is in part because of the volume afforded by her 18-foot, 2-inch beam and her moderate forward sections. This is typical for Viking, whose design approach favors interior accommodations and respectable head-sea performance.

Below Decks / Machinery

As is typical from Viking, the 61's engines are mounted on steel I-beams that span the engineroom and are fastened to the bulkheads, in an effort to transmit engine weight and thrust more evenly to the hull. Fiberglass tanks, molded separately from the hull, carry a total of 2,100 gallons of fuel.

Standing headroom in the 61's engineroom is a delight. Sea chests and auxiliary systems are segregated in an adjacent machinery compartment forward. To reduce clutter, bulky internal seawater strainers are replaced with wedge-style external strainers. Also, plenty of AC power from the upgraded twin ONAN generators.

Flybridge / Tower

There's a clear view of the cockpit from the tournament-style helm control pod, and a clever notched windscreen design improves visibility across the foredeck. Side-mounted, single-lever controls and power-assisted hydraulic steering deliver pinpoint accuracy to make charging through an inlet or backing down on a blue marlin a snap. Electronics are built into the curved console and protected by hinged, acrylic doors. Fore and aft bench seating is to starboard, and an L-shape settee is forward of the helm-both with space beneath for rod stowage. The bridge console also includes a built-in chill box and accommodates an optional top-loading freezer. A new hidden mounting system (no exposed screws) for sub-moldings, such as the console, enhances the bridge's clean appearance.

Hull Construction

Her molded fiberglass hull is laminated with a blend of knitted multidirectional reinforcement, polyester resin and a modified epoxy skin coat. Balsa coring is hand applied in the topsides and vacuum-bagged in the bottom. Viking has had success coring the bottoms of its 65-foot and 72-foot convertibles and believes the weight savings found and stiffness gained are necessary for performance. Coring is substituted for additional reinforcement in way of the through-hulls, and at the keel and chines. The hull is supported with cored fiberglass bulkheads and a network of fiberglass stringers. The superstructure and deckhouse are molded in one piece, and coring stiffens the decks and house sides.
