The 72-foot (22m) SIMPLICITY is an excellent example of an American-built motor yacht with a versatile layout and modern amenities.

In 2018, SIMPLICITY underwent an extensive refit where she was taken to the bones and virtually everything was replaced. The yacht now shines in exceptional condition with many new, modern soft goods and appliances.

SIMPLICITY’s refined interior showcases a warm ambiance with an understated, elegant styling and beautiful color coordination. Her main deck boasts an exceptional layout that effortlessly flows from the salon to the dining to the galley, creating an outstanding space for entertaining and family enjoyment.

Motor yacht SIMPLICITY welcomes six guests in four well-appointed, en-suited staterooms. Her spacious full-beam master suite is one you might find on a larger yacht, with a plush bed, small sofa and en-suite with his-and-her sinks. Her additional guest staterooms include a forward VIP with a centerline berth a stateroom with twin beds and another with over/under berths.

The luxury yacht features a spectacular aft deck with a lovely seating area, which has easy access to the spacious cockpit and hydraulic swim platform. SIMPLICITY also has a wonderful flybridge with ample seating and options for sun and shade.

The yacht’s hull is based on Viking’s respected semi-V sportfish hull, which ensures a dry, comfortable ride.

Full Details


SIMPLICITY is a classic flush deck motor yacht that combines pilothouse, galley, day head, salon and aft deck all on the same level.  The original Viking design separated the galley from the main salon; the aft bulkhead has been removed and it is now an open, fully modern space will all new stainless galley appliances.  All cabinetry has been replaced and upgraded.  The lower deck includes four staterooms: owner’s stateroom is aft with its own stairway and 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 / galley space is stunning in a moderate contemporary style with a nice blend of wood and fabrics. The color scheme is neutral, the impression is one of elegant and refined good taste. What was originally a constricted space with a narrow galley is now wide open.  The aft deck is furnished with high quality exterior furniture, it may be the most inviting and popular space on the yacht.  From the aft deck the cockpit is a few steps down. This space serves as a beach club with excellent access the water.  

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. Space for a tender is aft on the bridge deck and launching with the davit is straight-forward. Space also allows for one jet ski.  With a little reconfiguration one could also add a hot tub.
