Standing in the cockpit of “Steel Got It” you can really feel her 15’ 6” beam and appreciate the 132 sq.ft versatile space. The center piece of the cockpit is the custom Bluewater marine fighting chair. This could be easily changed to a stand-up rocket launcher or cocktail table if a future owner desired to do so. Some of her additional noteworthy cockpit features include:
Salon and Galley Main Deck
Facing forward in the cockpit the salon door is just off center to stbd. Upon entering you are greeted by a nice Amtico faux teak sole welcome pad. The rest of the salon has new grey carpet which was updated in 2021. The salon has a large open feel, with good lighting above and tons of natural light from the four large windows. Hunter Douglas blinds can soften the light and give you privacy when desired. The woodwork is a high gloss teak finish in keeping with everything you have come to expect from Viking Yachts. The décor and soft goods have been updated and are nautical in theme with a mostly beige and navy-blue color scheme. To port you have a large L-shaped beige ultra-leather sofa with storage beneath. There is a high gloss small molded in teak end table forward with a lamp on top and storage drawers beneath. Stbd side aft you have high gloss teak cabinetry that houses your AC DC electrical panels and a cabinet for Audio visual components.
The main deck layout is fantastic. Gone are the days of chopped up layouts, hard full bulkheads and sunken dark galleys detached from the salon. “Steel Got It” has a galley up arrangement portside just forward of the salon sofa. The bulkhead separating the two areas is waist height and mirrored for a larger deeper feel. Across from the galley to stbd is a 2021 re upholstered navy-blue ultra-leather dinette with refinished high gloss teak table. The seating has great storage beneath. The fwd bulkhead stbd side above the dinette has an updated flat screen TV with DVD player.
The galley features everything a shipboard gourmet would require, it includes the following:
The centerline walkway between the galley and dinette will lead us down three stairs to the lower accommodations. All carpeting is new in 2021. Immediately to port we find a set of double doors that house the over under Kenmore washer dryer.
Just across the companionway to stbd is the guest stateroom. The soft goods and décor of the guest stateroom are nautical in theme and in keeping with the blue and beige color scheme seen throughout the rest of “Steel Got It”. Additional features of the guest stateroom include:
If we head back out into the companionway and continue forward, to stbd there is a day head access door to the guest head.
At the end of the companionway all the way forward we come to the master stateroom. The master stateroom arrangement has an island queen berth, good space, natural light, excellent storage and an en-suite head. Master stateroom highlights include:
The flybridge is easily accessed from a portside cockpit ladder. The large helm station is offset to stbd. Two custom Blue Water Marine helm chairs provide pilot and co pilot seating with expansive L shaped seating fwd of the helm and a bench seat to port. Bridge cushions are new 2021 and white vinyl. Isinglass is also new 2021. Along the aft bridge rail there are (6) rod holders. The pipewelders double spreader riggers are easily deployed from the bridge to enhance your trolling spread.
