NEW SEAKEEPER STABILIZER INSTALLED TO PREVENT BOAT ROCKING.
TAG TEAM is a spectacular, brand new, 72' Viking, which you will not find for charter anywhere else in Mexico, the Western USA or Canada. Not only is this one of Viking's masterpieces, powered by MTU Series 2000 / V16 M96L 2635 MHP, and geared with top of the line electronics and fishing gear, but it is Captained by Victor Julio Lopez. Victor, a native to Costa Rica, has made a big name for himself, not only in his homeland and now in Cabo, but worldwide, as he has been awarded "Best International Captain" by the IGFA, in 2016. The previous year (2015) he won the Los Cabos Billfish as Captain of the "Tranquilo" with a 399 lbs black marlin and also won the Bisbees East Cape, only to top it all off with a 3rd place in The Bisbees Offshore, with a 327 Blue Marlin, earning the team an astonishing $2,511,462 USD. In 2016 he won the Billfish release division of the Bisbees Offshore as well. "Tranquilo" was also named "Champion of the Pacific" (winning more tournaments than any other boat in the Pacific) for four consecutive years under his command.
His biggest fish caught to date is a 1,200 lbs Black Marlin, caught in Costa Rica, after a three and a half hour fight. Victor's record on billfish releases, are 58 sailfish, 2 blue marlin and one striped marlin released in one day. He also set a record of 130 sailfish release dover three days while competing in the Flor De Cana Tournament in the Summer of 2017.
Although he will admit he loves fishing billfish primarily, and this is what most people seek him for - he always enjoys a challenge. He does have a few large tuna under his belt as well, with his biggest, a yellowfin, back in 2004, weighing just over 300 lbs.
Deckhands Hector and Christian are also from Costa Rica, and have worked closely with him. They are a good team, which work quickly and efficiently and put communication first always. Christian has, just as Victor, been fishing since he was about 13 years old and recently placed in the 2017 WON Tuna Tournament with another boat.
This new 72 Convertible is the latest edition of the fabulous Viking line, offering ground breaking blue-water performance, style and engineering. Plus, the Tag Team is outfitted with Gyro Stabilizer Seekeper, ensuring the smoothest day out on the water. The Open Bridge accommodations layout includes four staterooms each with a private head, a J-shape sofa in the salon, a U-shape galley with custom granite countertops, crown molding on upper cabinetry, a large walk-in pantry forward, and a queen berth in the forward stateroom.
