Viking pioneered the enclosed bridge convertible design some 17 years ago in response to a long time Viking owner who wanted a new boat. Specifically, the owner needed the speed and handling of his high-performance Viking open bridge convertible because he liked to fish offshore. However, his wife wanted more entertaining room without going to a much larger boat that would require additional crew. With Viking’s in-house design team on the job it did not take long before the concept of a fully enclosed, climate-controlled helm area became a reality and a whole new genre of convertible was born.
Fast forward to the new Viking 70 Enclosed Bridge Convertible and it is apparent that we have once again taken the style to a new level of excellence, accommodation and beauty. The 70 EB, of course, shares the same sexy lines and style of the open bridge convertible. The sheer line is pure eye candy starting with a tall and aggressive rake to the stem that tapers effortlessly to a modest three feet of freeboard at the stern. A black metallic windshield mask wraps around the front of the deckhouse and transitions seamlessly into the dark tinted windows, which terminate in a teardrop shape.
