Introduction

SIMPLICITY was recently refit with an open check book approach by a couple who demanded the best at every turn. She is an interior designer with an excellent eye for style and he is an airline pilot who demands nothing less than perfection. This was not only a cosmetic refit but included machinery, hotel systems furniture and electronics.  First impressions suggest that this classic US built motoryacht has nothing in common with any other Viking 72, she appears like a new boat.  The owners enjoyed this project and have purchased the next project.

Arrangement

SIMPLICITY is a classic flush deck motor yacht on a deep-Vee hull form, a worthy combination that combines, pilothouse, galley, day head salon and aft deck all on the same level. The lower deck includes four staterooms accessed via a single stairway with an owners stateroom that is nothing short of grand.

 

Entering SERENITY from either of the two pilothouse doors, the upgraded electronics package, woodwork and fabrics in the pilothouse is immediately evident. 

 

Proceeding aft, the salon and galley is simply stunning in a moderate contemporary style with a nice blend of wood and fabrics. The color scheme has remained very neutral, the impression is one of elegant and refined good taste.  What was originally a segmented allotment of space with a narrow galley is now a wide open, modern space. 

 

The aft deck is accessed through large doors from the salon. Furnished with high quality exterior furniture it is most inviting and may be the most popular space on the yacht. Comfortable, relaxing and inviting only begin to describe the aft deck. From the aft deck the cockpit is a few steps down.  This space can easily be your beach club. Ad an awning and lounges and you will have a coveted play space with excellent access the water.

 

All the way forward on the bow is a bench seat. When it is time to be alone this is easily the best location. Coffee in the morning, read a book or just sit and recall what an amazing day you are having on this yacht.

Fly Bridge

The fly bridge is accessed via a stairway from the salon. Originally the access was up a ladder which was common on these yachts in the 90s. The ladder was removed and a stairway was installed.  Seating is plentiful around a built-in settee and table. With the tender launched, lounge chairs are easily positioned in that space. The upper command station has three Captain's chairs, new electronics and 360 degree visibility for easy operations.

 

The tender is located aft on the bridge deck and is easily launched with the davit. There is also room for a jet ski.  With a little reconfiguration one could also add a hot tub.

Summary

SIMPLICITY is the ultimate reconditioned motor yacht in her class and is priced above similar yachts on the market. The asking price does not cover the costs of this one-year refit. If you are looking for an extremely nice family cruiser with four staterooms and plenty of space, then look no further. SIMPLICITY  is a real American classic. With the refit, the owners not only changed the styling but reconditioned everything under floors and in the machinery spaces: pumps, systems, A/C, heads etc etc etc. What you don't see generally costs more than what you see.  If carefree family cruising and entertaining is in your plans and you don't want to spend a year in a shipyard then SIMPLICITY will be an obvious choice. One walk through and you will see the value.

 

SIMPLICITY will be in New England for the summer.
