Marlin mettle with day boat style.

Any devoted while marlin aficionado will tell you that the tackle available today is leagues above what used on the tournament circuit back in the 1950s and 1960s. Yet, one of the best white marlin baits remains a firm and gleaming carefully rigged balao because when it comes to catching fish some things never change at all. The new Viking 37 Billfish rides right alongside this wave of thinking. Designed to emulate the historic Merritt and Rybovich day boats of that by gone era, the Viking 37 Billfish raises the bar on the memory of these classic vessels with slick, contemporary styling and modern and more durable materials to offer better performance, easier maintenance and attractive overnight accommodations.

Now an integral part of the Viking Yachts line up, the 37 Billfish is built to be a canyon ready tournament contender that is equally at home fishing for sails off Palm Beach, blue marlin in the Bahamas, or Pacific sailfish in Costa Rica.
