AUSSIE RULES is a 28.4m (93.2ft) sportfishing yacht built by the renowned American shipyard Viking Yachts. With their sleek exterior and powerful performance, Viking Yachts are recognised across the globe, and are often seen leading major competitive fishing tournaments. As the flagship model for the esteemed yacht builder, the Viking 92 Enclosed Bridge provides a perfect platform for competitive fishing with the comfort and style of a luxury motor yacht.
With an impressive beam of 7.4m (24.3ft), there is ample interior space for relaxing and entertaining. The main deck has an open-plan design including a spacious lounging area aft with a sectional sofa, a large sit-up breakfast bar and eat-in galley, and a dining area for six guests. All five guest cabins are on the lower deck and provide accommodation for 10 guests. The highlight is the full-beam owner's suite with walk-in wardrobe and his-and-hers bathrooms en suite.
The flybridge offers quiet and protected cruising in any weather to reach those uncharted fishing destinations. Aft of the helm station is a sky lounge with a comfortable seating area surrounded by panoramic views. The flybridge aft offers an additional helm station with outriggers and additional rod holders.
AUSSIE RULES’ main deck fishing cockpit is suited for serious tournament anglers, while the upper-level mezzanine allows for guests to get in on the action from afar. This area is equipped with a built-in BBQ and al fresco dining area, with steps leading down to the fishing cockpit on both sides.
Powered by twin MTU 2,635hp engines, AUSSIE RULES cruises at 30 knots and has a top speed of 36 knots. Seakeeper stabilizers provide a comfortable experience on board while underway and at anchor. With a range of 616 nm, new fishing grounds await your discovery.
Not so long ago, many experienced tournament skippers and anglers felt a boat over 70 feet was on the cusp of being too large to effectively compete on the tournament trail. But the Viking 74 Convertible launched in May 2004 proved differently. Fast forward to the fall 2008 when the launch of our 82 Convertible continued the upward trend demonstrating beyond any doubt that Viking hit another grand slam with its then new flagship. Now we behold another amazing achievement, the Viking 92 Convertible, we continue to lead the industry with new product and unrivaled innovation with the Viking 92 Convertible, available in Open Bridge and Enclosed Bridge configurations.
This boat has a stunning profile in either version with several motor yacht cues including dual mezzanine decks; one in the cockpit and the second on the main level after deck. The latter mezzanine offers both rear facing lounge seating, along with a second seating area and a table for al fresco dining. An outside galley and grilling area are included for added convenience and ambiance.
The yacht’s interior is a showpiece of elegance and luxury. The 23-foot beam not only opens the salon but transforms it into a majestic living room with built-in furniture and plush appointments like a 60-inch flat screen television that rises on a lift out of the teak cabinetry. An L-shape island in the galley complements the work area and all countertops feature custom selected granite. A pair of walk-in pantries and a full day head are forward and characterize an excellent use of space. Nearby, a formal dining area accommodates eight guests.
The 92 Convertible has six staterooms, each with its own private head and shower. The full beam master suite features a king size walk around bed, a walk-in closet, a dressing table, and his and her private facilities. Crew quarters are aft with access from the cockpit. The full beam area includes a head with a shower, a small galley area, and upper and lower berths in a private cabin.
Propulsion choices include offerings by Caterpillar and MTU. The communication, navigation and entertainment electronic package will be designed and installed by Viking sister company, Atlantic Marine Electronics. The first Open Bridge boat will have a tuna tower designed and fabricated by Palm Beach Towers, another Viking subsidiary. Selecting our subsidiaries for standard and optional accessories allows us to deliver the 92 Convertible turnkey ready.
