Ready for some more awesome images of our new 54 Sport Tower (ST) in action? Back in March, we teased you with a few photos from our Florida photoshoot.

Now here's a more comprehensive look at the 54 ST, Viking's largest-ever express style sportfishing yacht. Thanks again to the owner of FarNiente who gave us the opportunity to capture his beautiful battlewagon strutting her stuff in some pretty sporty conditions off Palm Beach, Florida. In this Viking View, we focus on giving you looks of the boat from all angles to fully appreciate her speed, performance, style and aesthetic appeal. We start with the above shot, which gives you a great view of her huge cockpit and observation mezzanine.

Our Design and Engineering Department is constantly refining the running surfaces of our yachts. You can really see the strakes and chines knocking down the spray in this image, reducing drag and increasing performance efficiency.

This view really accentuates the size of the 54 ST, with her proud bow aggressively pushing forward and her Palm Beach Towers tuna tower enhancing an already fierce, powerful profile.

Coming right at you, these two verticals showcase nicely the excellent sightlines afforded by the large wraparound windshield of our Sport Tower and Sport Coupe designs. Also notice the efficiency of the hull's performance, as her variable deadrise running surface splits the sea with ease, leaving a clean flat wake behind her.

We leave you with this in-water view that showcases FarNiente's gorgeous faux teak transom and majestic tower. In the near future, we'll show you some details of her cockpit and command deck, as well as pictures of her luxurious three-stateroom layout. Stay tuned.

The 54 ST made her world premiere at the 2022 Miami International Boat Show. This Viking is part of the 54 Open Series, which also includes Open and Sport Coupe versions. The 54 Sport Coupe premiered at the 2021 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. FarNiente is hull No. 4 in the Open Series; the next two 54s will also be Sport Tower models, followed by the first 54 Open (hull No. 7).
