Viking Yachts 72 Enclosed Bridge

Viking Yachts 72 Enclosed Bridge Convertible Profile Image

It was back in 1964 that Bill and Bob Healey opened the factory doors to what would become the world-renown, iconic sportfish and motor yacht builder known as Viking Yachts. With the company mantra to “Build A Better Boat Every Day” the new Viking 72 Enclosed Bridge was imagined to fill a void in the 70-foot sportfish market that only Viking could achieve. From the highest quality composites in the hull to the in-factory woodshop to Viking’s premier engine manufacturer partners, there is simply nothing on the market that can compete with the Viking 72 Convertible or Enclosed Bridge models in this class. In a recent Marlin Magazine article, Viking President and CEO Pat Healey had this to say about the transition from the 70 to the 72, “The 70 Viking is an iconic boat. What we did, after building 36 of them over a period of five and a half years, is the same thing we accomplished with our other recent boat models, we just made it better.”

So how do you improve on an already phenomenal boat? Starting with the hull performance, Viking changed the deadrise at the transom, removed the chines aft to gain additional beam on the boat, and shaped her to be more of a V-configuration, all of which made the 72 more slippery and resulted in a faster yacht. The hull is comprised of a mixture of E-glass and carbon fiber material that gives the hull more strength and durability, but also reduces the weight of the boat. Combine those high-grade materials with Viking’s vacuum-bagged resin-infusion process, and you get more speed and stiffness while continuing to reduce the weight.

Part of the extra two feet added to this model went right to the cockpit, which is one of the amazing features on the 72 Enclosed Bridge. Of course the shaded observation mezzanine is a favorite among sportfish enthusiasts as it allows guests on the boat to watch the fishing action in the comfort of a leather seat, air-conditioned, with plenty of refreshment opportunities within reach. But the ‘fish-ability’ of the cockpit sets a standard in sportfishing. You can see the additional room behind the fighting chair that the extra two feet and beam have provided. There are two refrigerated boxes, an ice maker, bait boxes, tackle cabinet, livewell, tuna tubes, and ample storage place. And don’t forget the built-in space for the Seakeeper Gyro Stabilizer that has been built into the deck just forward of the lazarette.

The interior of the Viking 72 Enclosed Bridge does not disappoint even the most distinguished of owners. Enjoy the addition of the circular staircase which leads to the enclosed bridge helm. The 72’s enclosed bridge is essentially a second salon on the boat, featuring a L-shaped sofa, table, another refrigerator, and an entertainment center in the event guests on board want to congregate upstairs.

New owners of the 72EB can choose from multiple power options. The standard base model engine is twin MAN V12 1550hp diesels, but owners can choose to upgrade to CAT C-32A 1925hp engines, MTU Series 2000 V12 M96L 1945hp engines, or the MTU V16 M96L 2635hp engines. The largest engine package produced an average cruising speed of over 37 knots and hits 40 knots at top end with just an 80 percent engine load.

Strange Glow Over Moscow Skies Triggers Panic as Explosions Reported

B right flashes lit up the night sky in southern Moscow in the early hours of Thursday morning, new footage appears to show, following reports of an explosion at an electrical substation on the outskirts of the city.

Video snippets circulating on Russian-language Telegram channels show a series of flashes on the horizon of a cloudy night sky, momentarily turning the sky a number of different colors. In a clip shared by Russian outlet, smoke can be seen rising from a building during the flashes lighting up the scene.

Newsweek was unable to independently verify the details of the video clips, including when and where it was filmed. The Russian Ministry of Emergency situations has been contacted via email.

Several Russian Telegram accounts said early on Thursday that residents of southern Moscow reported an explosion and a fire breaking out at an electrical substation in the Leninsky district, southeast of central Moscow.

Local authorities in the Leninsky district told Russian outlet RBC that the explosion had happened in the village of Molokovo. "All vital facilities are operating as normal," Leninsky district officials told the outlet.

The incident at the substation in Molokovo took place just before 2 a.m. local time, reported.

Messages published by the ASTRA Telegram account, run by independent Russian journalists, appear to show residents close to the substation panicking as they question the bright flashes in the sky. One local resident describes seeing the bright light before losing access to electricity, with another calling the incident a "nightmare."

More than 10 villages and towns in the southeast of Moscow lost access to electricity, the ASTRA Telegram account also reported. The town of Lytkarino to the southeast of Moscow, lost electricity, wrote the eastern European-based independent outlet, Meduza.

Outages were reported in the southern Domodedovo area of the city, according to another Russian outlet, as well as power failures in western Moscow. Electricity was then restored to the areas, the outlet reported.

The cause of the reported explosion is not known. A Telegram account aggregating news for the Lytkarino area described the incident as "an ordinary accident at a substation."

The outlet quoted a local resident who speculated that a drone may have been responsible for the explosion, but no other Russian source reported this as a possible cause.

Ukraine has repeatedly targeted Moscow with long-range aerial drones in recent months, including a dramatic wave of strikes in late May.

On Sunday, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the region's air defense systems had intercepted an aerial drone over the city of Elektrostal, to the east of Moscow. No damage or casualties were reported, he said.

The previous day, Russian air defenses detected and shot down another drone flying over the Bogorodsky district, northeast of central Moscow, Sobyanin said.

There is currently no evidence that an aerial drone was responsible for the reported overnight explosion at the electrical substation in southern Moscow.
