The profile of the Viking 82 convertible yacht MUSTANG SALLY is as recognizable at the dock of a yacht club, as it is at sea trolling for billfish. The aggressively raked stem and seamless curves are a testament to the famous style of a Viking built sportfish yacht. Viking has solved the challenge for many active Florida yacht charter clients, who seek both the comforts of a megayacht as well as the performance of a fishing boat. Many mid-sized megayachts must carry a small tender to allow charter guests an opportunity to go fishing. With sport fish yacht MUSTANG SALLY Viking has put the entire package into one yacht – no need for a small tender when you can chase tournament gamefish from the megayacht itself.
All the credit for sportfish Viking 82C MUSTANG SALLY as a crossover luxury yacht and fishing boat goes to the builders and the in-house design team. Her signature ground-breaking design and performance is the result of thousands of hours racked up by Viking’s tournament winning demo program. Real-world experience at sea, fishing and cruising in all weather conditions helped the builder lock down the features, amenities and performance required to make this yacht an ideal charter vessel for active, sports-minded guests.
Sustainability and a commitment to protecting the oceans is a cornerstone of the goals of 1-800 Yacht Charters, and the company’s President, Jana Sheeder. Great care goes into promoting yachts that follow this ideal. The idea of trophy hunting and fishing is not in line with the company’s ideals, and yachts that practice “catch and release” are the only sportfish yachts promoted to clients. This Viking 82 convertible is a perfect example of this dedication to sustainability: the forward freeboard is nearly nine feet, yet only three feet in the cockpit. This makes it safe and effortless for the crew and guests to release billfish unharmed.
Stepping into the salon, it is apparent that comfort and luxury are abundant throughout the yacht. A recent major interior refit has given the yacht a more contemporary look [Note: the exterior hull was also painted during the refit, with a custom, gold-to-bronze fade metallic paint.]. The yacht’s substantial beam creates a spacious salon, with hand-finished teak joinery throughout. The L-shaped sofa offers an excellent vantage to relax and enjoy the entertainment on the screen of the large 50-inch TV (Apple TV system with Bose sound system), which rises from cabinetry on the starboard side. A dinette on the port side and wide bar stools at the open-galley countertop to starboard create a relaxing and practical environment. The design lends to both formal dining as well as grabbing a sandwich and snacks between billfish strikes from the cockpit fighting chair.
A companionway to port leads to four charter guest staterooms. The master suite is positioned amidships for maximum comfort and privacy, and features a King size bed, desk, 46″ Samsung LCD flat screen TV with Bose entertainment system, and en-suite bathroom.
An offset companionway leads to the other three cabins. Forward is the VIP Stateroom with Queen bed, flat screen TV and en-suite bathroom. To port and starboard are two guest cabins. Each cabins offers side-by-side Twin berths, flat screen TV’s and en-suite bathrooms.
The aft cockpit of the yacht boasts 255 square feet of space, and features the signature Viking mezzanine deck beneath the flying bridge overhang for protection against sun and salt spray. Here, guests will find a seating area, air conditioning, TV, Bose sound system, and a cockpit camera. Furthest aft is the fishing area, and hardcore enthusiasts will appreciate the Murray Marine fighting chair, bait freezer, tackle center, large storage area, livewell, large freezer and rod holders within easy reach.
The open flying bridge features a center helm console, DirecTV receivers, Tracvision TV with Gyro, satellite radio, Clarion CD/MP3/WMA receiver. Forward of the helm is a private seating area with comfortable raise settee and a small teak dining table.
With its Palm Beach Towers custom tuna tower this yacht is fully outfitted for tournament fishing and long range cruising. The tower features 4 outriggers, a center rigger, and 20 recessed teaser reels, and sunshade).
The Viking 82 C is powered with 2 MTU 16V2000 M93 2400hp diesels affording a cruise speed of 26 knots and a top end of 360 knots. This translates to the ability start a trip in Miami or Fort Lauderdale, enjoy a Florida Keys yacht charter vacation, or even head to the nearby Bahamas.
