The 68 has reached an excellent bang for buck price point encasing all of its Viking model year features for it's time, overall outstanding layout-fishing-travel platform and stellar performance with it’s reliable MTU M91 propulsion package. The Colby Jean has just undergone some recent updates at Viking South in May 2016. The time on the M91’s has been slow troll time with a very successful proven fish raising history. The 68 will not disappoint and is tough to beat for it’s comfortable size, pleasing aesthetics and reputable ride.

The 68' is so impressive with her breathtaking sheer, raked house with extended aft flybridge overhang and softly rolled brow. The 68' boasts a 186 square foot cockpit with mezzanine deck and transom radius.
The interior salon of the 68' leaves nothing to be desired in size. It is very spacious. This one gives off a rich feel, adding just the right custom accents to dress it out tastefully. The U-shaped dinette accommodates five comfortably. It adjoins the elongated L-shaped settee to starboard via a Teak bulkhead. The offset of this arrangement to the adjacent curved aft galley island and bar stool arrangement makes for a very roomy and accommodating salon set up. To top it all off, from any of the mentioned vantage points everyone has a clear view of the Samsung 46" electrically activated pop-up TV out of the port side credenza. Both the salon stereo and TV can be enjoyed with Bose LS48 surround sound. One cannot get enough of Vikings richer, high-gloss Teak finish so the salon was finished off with custom solid Teak valances with Teak lambrequins.
The accommodations below carry the most practical and spacious 4 stateroom, 4 head layouts offered today in a tournament series convertible. As you enter each stateroom take notice of the curved Teak-framed archways of the doorways to each room and/or closet. The first stateroom you will come to down the companionway is the crew quarters, which is aft and down two steps to port with large bunks, a full shower stall and head arrangement, this crew is as generous as they come. Also included is the convenient engine room access to the crew quarters, which is a must. A nice sized upper and lower berth guest stateroom lies off the companionway to starboard with shared guest head and shower. All heads of this vessel are outfitted with granite countertops, upgraded hardware, mirrored ceilings and custom Amtico flooring. The master is mid-ship with an athwartship king size bed with lift-up storage below. Two his and her closets lie along the aft bulkhead. A flat screen TV trimmed in Teak is flush mounted into the adjacent wall.
The forward stateroom offers the preferred Queen berth arrangement, beautiful Teak upper cabinets lining the queen berth and large hanging locker. There is also a private head and shower adjoining this stateroom.
The flybridge with its centerline helm configuration offers symmetrical seating on both port & starboard sides of the flybridge. Aside from two long bench seats, with aft-facing jump seats and back rests, the layout provides a large freezer forward of the helm. There is also a drink cooler forward to starboard with a fresh water outlet below. Ample rod storage lies below the port & starboard flybridge bench seats. At the helm there is a convenient electric drop down instrumentation box overhead.
