The Viking 60 Convertibl­e represente­d a new design above and below the waterline.

- By patrick sciacca

eplacing the popular Viking 61 Convertibl­e, the Viking 60 Convertibl­e had a higher freeboard forward and a cambered foredeck. Below the surface, there was a new hull form with a finer entry, convex sections forward in the hull and flatter sections aft, enhancing overall performanc­e. ¶ When I ran the 60—powered with optional 1,825 hp Caterpilla­r C32 Acert diesels— top speed was 42 knots and cruise speed was 36 knots. ¶ At press time, there were four Viking 60 Convertibl­es on the market ranging from $1.6 million to $2.45 million.
