Reelentless was commissioned new as “Ships Café” for a very knowledgeable owner. Upon delivery from Viking the vessel was taken to Merritt Boatworks for an additional 7 months of customization. The work included the addition of a full custom tower, mezzanine seating area, teak cockpit decking, teak covering boards, and hi gloss teak rub rail. Furthermore, lifting rails were added to the vessel, resulting in amazing ride and handling. The interior received a custom galley and dining table, along with custom Merritt windows for the salon and additional touches. The work made the vessel one of kind and truly the best of both worlds with Viking engineering and Merritt aesthetics. The vessel features 3 fuel tanks with a total of 1,800-gallon capacity for extended range of over a 1,000 nautical miles at most economical speed. 3 staterooms and 3 heads make those long trips a true pleasure for guests.
