A Work of Art is the 2022 Gulf Coast Triple Crown Championship Boat!

Art Favre's Viking 92 started the Gulf Coast Triple Crown series claiming the third place Blue Marlin at the Orange Beach Billfish Classic and second place Release Boat.

During the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic, Christian Fast wound in the winning blue marlin at 638.7 pounds. The team followed that up with the second place Blue Marlin at the Blue Marlin Grand Championship. Congratulations to Art, captain Jason Buck and the whole Work of Art team!

Nick Pratt's Viking 72 It Just Takes Time took second place in the Triple Crown. Captain Chris Hood put Nick Crovato on a 763.6-pound fish at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic to win the Heaviest Blue Marlin for an unprecedented third time!

Rounding out the top five Vikings in the series is the Viking 92 High Cotton, in fourth place and the Viking 80 CE in 5th. The Gulf Coast Triple Crown Championship is a multi-tournament series with four billfish events for teams to accumulate points.

The tourneys include the Orange Beach Billfish Classic, the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic, the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic and the Blue Marlin Grand Championship.
