Performance at Sea is just one way to describe this well designed and well appointed 75' Viking Sport Cruiser "ARES". Given her moderate entry and her 19 degree transom dead rise proves that this vessel is designed for high speed offshore service and at a cruise speed of 30 knots, the vessel remains dry even in sloppy seas. "ARES" sports a pair of recently rebuilt 1,675 hp C-32 CAT engines, that pushes this vessel through the water with very little effort.
To completely understand the performance of the incredible vessel one just needs to take her for a sea trial, It takes very little effort to bring her up on a plane and it quickly takes you to a very nimble 30 knot cruise speed, meanwhile using less than 75% of the engines capacity.
You will be hard pressed to find another four stateroom two crew vessel with the performance that is offered in this beautifully opointed 75' powerhouse.
"Ares" has had only two owners in her lifetime both have professionally maintained, and constantly upgraded her with an open checkbook, it is truly worth taking a look at one of the finest 75' Sport cruisers on the market today.
