There's nothing in the world that Viking Yachts' president, Pat Healey, would rather do than fish, so every Viking sport-fishing boat overflows with innovations in the cockpit. This boat even boasts a system that allows you to regulate the baitwell flow to match the species in the tank! A special cabinet with drawers and removable tackle boxes lets you keep the day's tackle close at hand while everything else remains stowed elsewhere. The mezzanine hides copious dry storage, bait freezers, an Eskimo ice receptacle, a rigging station, drink box and more. Elsewhere around the cockpit you'll find special compartments for chamoises, squeegees, freshwater and saltwater washdown spigots, dedicated gaff and mop storage, and quick-connect oil-change fittings, to name just a few. You can plumb the transom fish box to double as a livewell and give it an "aquarium" window if you choose. Our test boat came with another livewell installed in the deck, and each metal scupper plate in the cockpit corners sports a 2-inch threaded hole that accepts additional livewell outflow hoses - or tuna-tube exhaust.
