Biggest Sport Fishing Boats Ever Made

 

 

 

 

 

Viking 92 Convertible

” The largest Viking to date in its 50-year history is its new 92 Convertible.

  It launches late summer 2014. The first boat will be an enclosed-bridge model, and this will be followed by open-bridge versions. The project was handled by Viking from design, the building of the molds in-house with the aid of a pair of five-axis profiling milling machines and all of the construction aspects. 

  The 23-foot beam not only opens the salon, but transforms into a living room with built-in furniture and appointments like a 60-inch flat screen television that rises on a lift out of the teak cabinetry. An L-shape island in the galley complements the work area and all countertops feature custom-selected granite. A pair of walk-in pantries and a full day head are forward and characterize an excellent use of space. Nearby, a formal dining area accommodates eight guests.”

The full-beam area includes a head with a shower, a small galley area, and upper and lower berths in a private cabin.

  Propulsion choices include offerings by Caterpillar and MTU. The communication, navigation and entertainment electronics package will be designed and installed by Viking’s sister company, Atlantic Marine Electronics. The first open-bridge boat will have a tuna tower designed and fabricated by Palm Beach Towers, another Viking subsidiary.

Hatteras 90′

” Hatteras’ largest sport-fishing boat is the 90C. The boat was built in 1995, with the first boat delivered in 1996. This was a series of convertibles Hatteras produced at the time, the first one was in 1992, which was an 82C.

There were a total of 23 boats from the series built and sold from 1992-1998. At the time, it had largest diesel engines on a sport-fishing boat — the Deutz 16v-620 engine with 2,900 break hp.

Another unique feature of the 90C is that Hatteras built a bridge upon a bridge, meaning a flybridge on top of an enclosed bridge. There was only one like this built in its fleet.

The biggest challenge with the build process was the draft of the boat due to the large horsepower. Hatteras Engineering and Michigan Wheel designed a hybrid propeller specific for this model.

    Of course the comparison above is not quite fair as the Viking 92′ is a current production boat while Hatteras , at present , “only” makes sportfish up to 77′ in length … see below .

HATTERAS: 100-FOOT MOTORYACHT RISING

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A recent visit to New Bern, NC, home of Pepsi and Hatteras, allowed us to catch up on the construction of its new flagship: the Hatteras 100 RPH.

At one point or another, all companies face this challenge when introducing a new model: How do you strike the right balance between innovation and tradition without losing loyal customers? Hatteras Yachts, which recently designed its flagship and is well into the build of Hull No. One of its new 100-foot raised pilothouse motoryacht, seems to be on the right track.

When we visited in early August, there was much to see of the new flagship, including the elegant composite hull, fresh out of the mold, and a full-size mockup of the lower, main and upper decks, spread out in a rented commercial space close to the shipyard.

Every component of the interior, from the beds to the helm console, coffee tables and lounge chairs on the sun deck, were built to scale in cardboard and plywood. The mockup had the dual purpose of helping the Hatteras design team—under the guidance of Hatteras’ manager of product design, David Brown—come up with the best spatial arrangements and also affords owners the opportunity to give their input while getting a feel for the new motoryacht.  “

” Tuesday the 4th of December was a great day for Game & Leisure Boats and Hatteras in Australia. Tuesday was the day we launched the brand new Hatteras GT54, the first of this impressive model to arrive into Australia. We were delighted to showcase this stunning new vessel for her proud new owners and she will make her permanent home in Brisbane later this week.

What was even more exciting was that we had our great friends from New Guinea with us for the event, with their new GT54 arriving in PNG in January. We now can’t wait for the amazing new Hatteras 60 Motor Yacht to arrive mid this year. “
