The first hull of the Viking Yachts 93 Motor Yacht is moving down the production line, full steam ahead. The 93 Motor Yacht stands as the largest Viking yacht built at the New Gretna facility and she will launch in late summer in preparation for her private unveiling to the dealer network in September in Atlantic City. Following the private debut will be the world premiere of the Viking 93 Motor Yacht at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November. The latest milestone in the build process of this magnificent vessel was the installation of the deck house, which clearly gives the yacht its distinctive appearance.
The upper level of the 93 Motor Yacht serves as the enclosed bridge deck, which combines the helm and upper salon areas. The exansive aft deck will be dedicated to outdoor enjoyment with lounges, wet bar, electric grill, alfresco dining table, and casual seating.
Even in this early stage of the construction game, you are completely aware of the spaciousness of the salon. In the coming weeks this space will come together with beautiful walnut joinery that will create a welcoming atmosphere, while the large windows will bring in lots of light and panoramic views.

Consistently at the forefront of innovation in the yachting industry, the Viking Yacht Company has officially launched their latest project – the development of the totally new Viking Yachts 93 Motor Yacht. Over the past two years, the world-renown shipyard headquartered in New Jersey has made a big splash with their re-entrance into the motor yacht arena with the debuts of the Viking 75 Motor Yacht and more recently the Viking 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht. The new 93 Motor Yacht will now stand as the fleet’s flagship and it promises to make a fabulous addition to the wildly successful series. While the design of the Viking 82 CPMY was entirely based on the first-born Viking 75 motor yacht, the 93 Motor yacht is a fresh concept and brings a completely new project to the table.
The Viking 93 is a tri-deck motor yacht that boasts a spacious beam of 24.2 feet and a maximum draft of 5.9 feet. It features a fantastic, enclosed skylounge that will provide a climate-controlled observation area perfect for taking in the views and socializing in utmost comfort. For now, further details on the 93 motor yacht are being kept under wraps, with the layout and accommodations still open to customization, but the engine set-up has been confirmed. Power will come from a pair of 1,920hp MTU V12 2000 M96Ls, which Viking estimates will propel the 93 to a top speed of just under 27 knots and a cruising speed of around 24 knots. Currently, the hull of the first 93 Motor Yacht has just completed the infusion process on the production line and is on schedule to be launched in August of 2017. The legendary shipyard has stated that it has plans to showcase the first Viking 93 motor yacht for public viewing at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
There is a lot of large-scale yacht build activity going on at the Viking Yachts plant with several other big projects currently underway including the 92 Enclosed Bridge Double Barrel, which is nearing completion for a repeat client. The industry-leading boat builder plans to launch an extraordinary grand total of 17 yachts measuring more than 78 feet in length overall in 2017, and that number includes nine hulls in the very popular Viking 92 sportfish line.
