A Closer Look: NEW! Viking 90 Skybridge

Jul 17, 2023

The Viking 90 represents a $20M investment in R&D to become the newest flagship and ensure the best product for owners. Viking Yachts took what they’ve learned from the 92 and other newer Viking models and applied those experiences into the development of the 90. The class-leading Viking 80 also played a big role in leading up to development of the 90. Viking’s recent practice of utilizing lightweight, advanced interior materials along with composites technology including carbon fiber is prevalent in the new 90 and offers substantial weight savings on the completed boat.

Much like the outgoing 92, the new 90 will feature a two-level mezzanine. However, all seating will face aft as opposed to the 92’s forward facing settee. This update is based on input from Viking 92 owners and the realization that owners and guests want to face the action – the cockpit.

A challenge presented to the design team was to keep as much of the 92’s interior volume and accommodations as possible. That means 6 staterooms and 7 heads. The team was successful and produced a stunning and functional interior space that even maintained bed sizes in each stateroom and kept the enclosed laundry center.

Every Detail Matters

Aside from the meticulous attention paid to the cockpit, mezzanine and interior, Viking’s engineers went through every system, both big and small, with a goal to simplify what was complex and aide access for maintenance and future repairs. The anchoring system and flush-mounted anchor have been designed to reduce weight while optimizing effectiveness and aesthetics.

The engine room layout has been improved upon and boasts many benefits including optimum placement of the batteries within fiberglass boxes. The twin 40 kW generators are installed aft of the engines, providing great accessibility for maintenance and improved center of gravity for the yacht. The engine room features a predetermined spot for installation of omni sonar. The Viking 90 also utilizes composite seacocks which will eliminate corrosion concerns while decreasing weight.
