The New Viking 52 Sport Tower

  

  One of three new models for the 2015 model year, the  (Sport Tower) project is quickly moving along and on schedule for the boat’s launch and inaugural appearance at the Viking Yacht Dealer Meeting in September. The 52 ST will draw on our popular and excellent running  hull, but then breaks new ground in its class with an exciting and eye-catching cockpit and command bridge layout crowned with a sleek and stylish three-sided fiberglass deckhouse.

The foredeck and deckhouse component is currently in build as shown here in the mold. When this unit is completed, a highly polished overhead liner will add a finishing touch and also incorporate locking rod stowage to keep fishing tackle secure yet close at hand, as we have similarly done on the Viking 42 ST.

Our $1 million five-axis profiler was used to build all of the plugs for the molds for this new model, including this single unit that creates the cockpit and the command bridge deck. The profiler easily defines the mezzanine, seating, and in-deck fish boxes in absolute detail. Molded nonskid areas are in black.

The cockpit and command bridge deck mold is strikingly complex, yet the details are discernible when visualized right side up.  To the right, the inverted shape is the pod for the electronics box at the helm. The recessed arc behind it is the base and standing platform for the centerline helm seat. To the left, the fish boxes, the steps to the command bridge and the mezzanine stowage compartments are readily seen.
