Galati Yacht Sales currently has The Provider, a Viking 76 Convertible, listed with an asking price of $4.795 million. The 2015 sportfisherman underwent a refit in 2018, getting a new Palm Beach Tower and new electronics. It has a rare six-stateroom, five-head layout with space to sleep up to 12, making it a solid contender for a tournament team hitting the billfish circuit.

Owners and guests will immediately notice the battle-ready, 206-square-foot cockpit, which has room to spare for the BlueWater fighting chair. There is mezzanine bench seating creating a perfect perch to keep an eye on the trolling spread and spot that bill and its windshield-wiper motion knocking the teasers around. A ladder to port of the centerline leads to the 76-footer’s flybridge where the three-seat helm station sits abaft a bench seat and fixed table, a great spot for guests to converse with the captain en route to the fishing grounds.

During downtime, the salon offers a welcome respite for the weary angler. There is a day head immediately to port and multiple seating options with an L-shaped sofa and a coffee table to starboard and three fixed stools at the open galley bar forward to port. A C-shaped dinette sits next to the galley and is a great spot to relax and enjoy casual meals with the crew. The galley has two countertop areas, a dishwasher, a trash compactor, an electric cooktop and a sink.

From the Yachting Archive: Viking 76: Intelligent Design and Evolution 

“Since the 76 replaces our 74, introduced in 2004, we had a number of styling updates in terms of the house shape and window lines,” said David Wilson, Viking Yachts’ manager of design. With the added length and a bit more sheer height, Wilson was able to do away with the raised trunk foredeck without compromising headroom belowdecks. In addition to in-house input, Wilson was armed with a punch list generated from dealer and customer feedback. Customers, for example, wanted a full-beam master stateroom. Wilson accomplished this by adding six inches of chine beam and a bit more shape to the topsides. Storage space for the owner’s gear was also important. Wilson crafted a five-stateroom arrangement that includes a walk-in pantry forward of the galley.” – Yachting, July 2010
