This 65' Viking Sport Cruisers by Princess is magnificent to behold. The sleek aggressive lines of this modern express are a reflection of her agile and efficient performance. Boarding from the teak sole aft deck, you will first encounter port and
starboard oversize sun decks adjacent to the centerline entry. Discretely nestled under the sun pads are the entries to port and starboard "garage" and utility storage, and engine room compartment companionway.
The crew area has been converted to a utility work area with reverse cycle A/C. This area has ample storage, tool box and a large lazarette/generator space. Bosch washing machine and dryer units are located in this area as well. Entry into the engine room is forward through a bulk head doorway with a water tight door.
From the aft sun pad area moving forward through a Strataglass enclosure is the spacious bridge deck entertainment area. This area includes a large U-shaped
seating area with dining table to starboard and an opposing L-shaped settee. Service bar, barbecue, ice maker and refrigerated drink box are to port. The starboard helm features include a double width captain seating with additional seating on the port side for two more companions. The helm features single lever controls, 360 degree visibility, air conditioning and retractable window next to the captain's chair. A custom electronics package provides the captain with all necessary instruments at his finger tips. Finally, a retractable canvas soft top sunroof can be opened to allow sun and fresh air into this area with the touch of a button.
Forward and centerline is the entry hatch to the lower salon and sleeping quarters, which have carpet and wood flooring throughout. The lower areas are finished in beautiful high gloss cherry wood and rich upholstery materials.
The lower galley is to starboard opposite the large U-shaped settee and table to port and features a Subzero 700 BC refrigerator/freezer drawer unit, 3-burner ceramic top stove, Sharp Carousel convection oven, additional refrigeration, stainless steel sink with garbage disposal and generous storage throughout.
The salon Toshiba flat screen TV is located forward of the galley on the starboard side. The entire salon area benefits from a large skylight located centerline allowing for a flood of natural daylight to brighten up the entire area.
The VIP stateroom with a private ensuite head is forward in the bow featuring a centerline queen size bed, drawer storage, recessed lighting, TV, and hanging locker with shelves. The private head is equipped with a stall shower, toilet and lighted vanity/sink with overhead and underneath storage, and teak and holly sole.
The Guest stateroom is aft of the entry stairs companionway on the port side with over/under single bunks in a crossover configuration and a private entry to the day head. The head features a space saving circular shower stall with teak sole, toilet, vanity sink and recessed lighting.
The Master stateroom is aft of the salon on the port side. The queen size bed is set at an angle to centerline. This allows for a walk around island bed. The master features a large hanging locker, flat screen TV and DVD, SMX thermostat and cherry high gloss cabinetry. The ensuite master head features a stall shower, vanity and sink complimented by recessed lighting, mirrored wall and a teak and holly sole.
