Viking 68 Convertible by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy Viking brings out their best with the new 68' Convertible Sportfish. Every sportfisherman who sees this sleek and savvy yacht will immediately hanker for not only a taste, but a full serving of this front-running fish seeker. One of the most hallowed names in the boating business, Viking gained its momentum just after WWII, and has been one of the brightest stars in the yachting firmament ever since. Co-founders Bill and Bob Healy – now joined by Bill’s son, Pat – have made their firm into a world-wide leader in sportfishing. Yet, Viking also delivers the comfort and livability that big time tournament buffs and cruising yachtsmen/women treasure. This latest model, the 68 Convertible, combines the best of its earlier 65 and 74 convertible successes, in a yacht that sparkles with ingenuity, innovation, and amenities.
