Tami Ann, a 2021 Viking 72 Convertible, is tournament-ready sport-fisherman with bluewater toughness, speed and luxe touches. Twin 2,635 hp MTU diesels push this 72C to 45 knots. Tami Ann has a four-stateroom, five-head layout and is asking. $7.475 million.

“Viking owners use their vessels. As a regular tournament fisherman, I’ve seen these yachts in large numbers from New Jersey to Costa Rica. To handle the rigors of regular runs to distant canyons where the seas can be as challenging as the fish being chased, Viking builds the 72C with a vacuum-infused fiberglass hull. Baltek end-grain balsa core and Airex foam core add strength without weight. Her fine entry and planing hull form make her seakindly too,” Yachting previously reported.

The business end of this 2021 Viking 72C is its 209-square-foot cockpit. To accommodate the angling arsenal, there are 10 rod holders on aft bridge rail, six rod holders on aft tower legs and a tackle center.

Dead-bait freezer space in the ­mezzanine will hold enough ballyhoo, mullet and mackerel for several tournaments.
