The V-65 combines the dynamic performance and sea keeping capabilities of an offshore powerboat with the elegant and spacious accommodations of a yacht.
Its deep V hull was designed to perform at speeds in the region of 40 knots and offer superb sea keeping combined with ease of handling. Propeller tunnel, chine and spray rail design all give a comfortable and very efficient operation at high speeds.
Coming aboard, the teak decked cockpit, divides into three areas. The forward helm area to starboard incorporates an integrated navigation section including radar, chart plotter and auto pilot, full engine instrumentation and controls and two double forward facing seats.
With safe and straightforward handling in mind the engines have electronic controls; the steering is power assisted and a bow thruster to aid in maneuvering. Conventional shafts drive with S Class propellers for instant response, good acceleration and cruising efficiency, whilst high capacity exhaust silencers ensure quiet operation at all speeds.
In the cockpit, there is an elegant seating/dining area, complemented by a wet bar with refrigeration, storage and an electric barbeque/grill. Over both the navigation and dining areas there is an electrically operated sunroof to give just the right amount of sun or shade. In addition this area is fully air conditioned. “Sea Lab” is also the only V-65 built to have custom forward windshield vent installed by Viking.
In the aft cockpit are twin sunbeds port and starboard, below which doors lift electro-hydraulically to provide garages for both tender and jet ski. The port garage is 14’ deep, 5’6” wide and 42” high. The starboard garage is 11’ deep, 4’ wide and approximately 42” high. Immediately below the port sunbed there are large storage lockers, while a hatch below the starboard sunbed provides access to the lazarette where you’ll find a work/utility area with storage, washer / dryer and large freezer. “Sea Lab” features a custom enlarged lazarette entry hatch with angled staircase in place of the standard ladder.
Going below, the huge salon is beautifully finished in lacquered cherry wood. The salon is positioned adjacent to the galley with a large seating area and a custom hi/lo table, overhead lighting, accent lights and a large overhead skylight. Particular features are an elegant seating area to port, fully fitted and concealed galley to starboard, a bar and entertainment area with 42” TV, direct TV receiver, DVD player and Bose Lifestyle surround sound system.
Both the forward and aft staterooms have their own en-suite heads and are truly spacious cabins with generously sized wardrobes and plenty of built in storage space. There is a third guest cabin with two single berths adjacent to the day head, which also incorporates a shower.
The sleek, dynamic good looks of “Sea Lab” conceal a host of practical features – wide side and after decks, foredeck storage lockers for fenders and lines and bulwarks for added security and comfort. However it is the overall concept of this yacht that stands out – outstanding performance combined with motor yacht levels of sophisticated accommodation.
