Snowbird, a 2020 Viking 68 Convertible listed HMY Yacht Sales, is a tournament-ready sportfisherman with plush comforts. The 68-foot sport-fisherman comes with a customized-to-match 2019 17-foot Maverick flats boat. The asking price is $5.248 million.

“A lot of people, it seems, agree that this boat is a good bet. As with most Vikings, the 68C’s story starts with her ride,” Yachting previously reported.  “As I pushed her throttles forward in choppy 2- to 4-footers off the New ­Jersey coastline, the yacht got up and out of the hole with ease, thanks in large part to a hull with a fine entry that flattens to 12.1 degrees of deadrise at the transom (a design that also helps with stability on the hook or when drifting). The 68C has a Viper steering system, meaning her rudders are independent of each other, a setup that gives the captain a high level of control.”

Snowbird is equipped with the optional twin 1,945 hp MTU V12 M96L 2000 diesels, giving the 68-footer a 39-knot top hop and a 35-knot cruise speed. The 176-square-foot cockpit is rigged for serious pelagic pursuits. The air-conditioned, mezzanine seating offers a comfortable spot to relax and watch the baits as well as store them with a built-in tackle cabinet with pullout drawers and a bait freezer.

Other cockpit features include the Release Marine Trillion Fighting Chair, fresh and saltwater washdown, a refrigerated chill box in the salon entrance step, flush rod holders, tackle and gaff stowage, an in-deck fishwell and an available circulating livewell.

On the flybridge, the three-seat teak helm pod has unobstructed sightlines, so, whether you’re running wide open or backing down on a billfish, Snowbird is ready for action. Additional bench seating flanks the flybridge forward with a third, forward-facing bench seat directly in front of the helm station.

While the exterior is built with a focus on fishing, Viking doesn’t overlook providing a luxurious interior. Snowbird’s salon is penned for relaxation from the ambiance of its satin-finish walnut, light grey tones and waist-to-ceiling windows, to the variety of seating options. There is an L-shaped settee to port with a U-shaped dinette forward. The galley’s island also has a three-seat bar to starboard. The galley is equipped with a four-burner cooktop, a stainless-steel sink and under-counter refrigerator and freezer drawers.
