Viaggio’s Lago series entices buyers with high-quality, ample power and generous amenities at a competitive price. Rigged with a 150 hp Mercury, it delivers 40 mph speeds, and a zero-to-30 mph punch in 8 seconds. It won’t break the fuel budget, thanks to a most economical cruise of 16-plus mph, which yields 4.3 mpg (3.8 gph).
The Viaggio’s strong build and warranty are high points. The welded superstructure comes with a lifetime warranty from the deck down, and Viaggio offers a five-year stem-to-stern warranty on everything above the deck. The triple 25-inch-round pontoons all boast lifting strakes plus full shielding under the deck, both of which enhance efficiency.
Outside, the black anodized perimeter railings are part of a standard package that coordinates the railings, trim and side skirting. Coupled with the deep-red metallic-and-white accent in the surrounding fencing, the effect is subtle and crisp. A standard folding, extra-large 10-foot Bimini top shades most of the deck.
Inside, bow seating features twin curved, facing lounges, each with high-density foam and lovely upholstery. An optional bow filler bench connects the two lounges.
The all-fiberglass helm console features a Rockford Fosgate sound system, along with analog engine instruments and a low, smoke-tinted Lexan windscreen. Hydraulic steering with a tilt helm is standard, and our boat featured optional power-assist hydraulic steering. Twin medium-back captain’s chairs tilt, swivel and slide. The optional Lakeport Plank flooring makes for a solid look with easy cleanup. We suggest you opt for the in-floor storage locker and the stainless-steel watersports tow bar.
The aft conversation pit is a mirror image of the bow, with twin curved, facing lounges. In back, an optional extended swim deck provides more than enough room for swimming, water-sports prep or sandbar gabbing. Optional stainless-steel fold-down cleats are positioned at all four corners. A retracting, folding stainless-steel boarding ladder is standard.
- Despite its smaller size, the Lago delivers performance and value on par with larger rigs.
- Luxury furniture features acrylic-coated vinyl seats for long life.
- MarineMat at the base of the captain’s console gives secure footing.
